In February of 2020, it was announced that System of a Down, Korn, and Faith No More would perform at a series of massive stadium shows as part of Korn and Faith No More’s upcoming North American tour. These shows didn’t happen for obvious reasons — most notably the entire world shutting down due to the largest health crisis of our time — but have now been rescheduled for later this year.
The stadium gigs will take place on October 22nd and 23rd, once again at the Banc of California Stadium. Those who purchased tickets for the original show will have them honored, though if they can’t make it or prefer a refund, that option’s on the table, too.
“Our shows at Banc of California Stadium in May have now been rescheduled to October 22 and 23,” write System of a Down via their Facebook. “Your ticket will be honored accordingly. If you cannot make the new date or prefer a refund, you should have received an email with your refund options. If you did not receive an email, please contact your point of purchase. For more information please visit: livenation.com/refund.
“Hopefully this will be the last time the dates are moved because we’re very excited to see you all ASAP.”

Hopefully, these shows will be some of the first in ushering rock and metal back onto the stage where it belongs.
Unfortunately, Korn and Faith No More’s summer tour won’t be rescheduled — rather than postpone it, the bands canceled it outright, perhaps presciently realizing that COVID would not end in a few weeks as originally planned. However, with these stadium shows back on, we can only dream that they’ll consider rescheduling it.
