Korn Issue Statement on Fan’s Death
The band has spoken out about the fan that passed away after being attacked at a recent show.
One day after fan Andy Richardson succumbed to injuries sustained in a fight at their concert in Atlanta, Korn has issued a statement regarding the incident. Richardson, 30, was allegedly attacked after he asked two men in the mosh pit at the concert to be careful around his girlfriend and a child that was with them.
“All the bands on the Family Values Tour offer their sincerest condolences and prayers to the family of 30-year-old Andy Richardson,” the statement read. “Richardson, who attended Sunday’s show at Atlanta’s Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater, was beaten by two men at the concert and subsequently was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, August 1. The incident occurred during the Deftones set, before tour headliners Korn took the stage. Korn are appalled at the actions of these men and are imploring anyone who witnessed this senseless act or has any information about the attack to please immediately come forward by contacting local authorities.”
