The organizers of France's Hellfest have announced plans to file a lawsuit against KORN and the band's management The Firm today (Monday, July 2) over the group's failure to perform at the festival.
In a statement issued by KORN's singer, Jonathan Davis, on June 22 — the day the group was supposed to perform at Hellfest — he blamed the cancellation on "severe weather" conditions "and a negligent promoter who didn't provide adequate cover for our gear." Davis added that "we were advised to cancel the show for risk of the band being electrocuted. The fans were short-changed and that pisses us off. This was an especially important show for us given my illness last year which prevented me from performing. I am seriously bummed."
Speaking to Nantes.maville.com, Hellfest organizer Benjamin Barbaud insisted that all conditions were met to insure KORN's safety and he explained that the band was paid in full for its performance — even though the group didn't end up playing a single note.
