Korn Bassist Drops Out Of South American Tour

Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu is dropping out of the band's upcoming South American tour. 

According to a statement on Korn's Facebook page, due to "unforeseen circumstances," Fieldy will be replaced by Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica's Robert Trujillo. 

"We are bummed Fieldy can't join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye," the statement read.

"We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May."

Korn plays Toronto on July 25.

Trujillo plays in a band called The Helmets. See him in action below:
