KoRn bassist Fieldy will be unable to make their South American tour this month due to “unforeseen circumstances.” However, they’ve got one hell of an interesting fill-in. Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo’s 12-year-old son and a member of the Northern California group The Helmets Tye Trujillo will be filling in for him. Fieldy is scheduled to return on May 6 at Carolina Rebellion.
The band stated the following:
“On April 17 Korn is heading down to South America for a run of dates in Columbia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fieldy is unable to make the shows so the band will be joined by a special guest. Filling in for bass duties will be Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and member of NorCal group The Helmets. Says the band, “We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye. We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May.
Fieldy will resume Korn’s 2017 tour at Carolina Rebellion on May 6.”
