Korn Chicken Out of Playing Ukraine


korn chickenUkrainian Korn fans, often known as “Ukornians,” got screwed today when the band called off a May 16 show in Kiev. What’s preventing them from playing the gig? Well, according to their website

“As The State Department of United States of America has recently issued a travel advisory warning against any non-essential travel to Kiev, both Korn and the promoter have decided it would be in the best interest of the fans that the show scheduled for May 16, 2014 be postponed to a later date. Full ticket refunds will be available immediately from point of purchase. All of Korn’s other dates on their tour of Russia will continue as planned.”

Ugh, what a bunch of pussies. Back out of show just because to not back out would be incredibly stupid and dangerous? Sorry, are we talking about Korn here, or Katy Perry? Stupid and dangerous is what Korn do!!! I bet the dudes in Watain called their booking agent and demanded to play in Ukraine the second this shit started, because that’s fuckin’ metal. (Metallica also played in Kiev recently, but their show was part of a contest held in conjunction with Diet Pogrom, Ukraine’s #1 soft drink, so it doesn’t really count.)
