For the first time in nearly two decades, Korn performed their track “Daddy” live as the rockers kicked off the 20th anniversary of Korn tour just a few days ago in Las Vegas.
The band wrapped up their show with the devastating track, which recounts singer Jonathan Davis being molested as a child, back in April 1995. The group is performing their entire self-titled LP onstage this trek, which means that Davis is once again forced to confront “Daddy” in front of an audience.
When asked about reopening old wounds, Johnathan said, “I’ll be playing ‘Daddy,’ but that song is just so old news to me. It’s not going to affect me like it did back then. There was abuse there, I dealt with it, and the person who abused me is dead now. Karma took them. And, y’know, I’ve buried that. I’m just going to play the song for the people that need it, you know what I mean?”
