Korn star Brian ‘Head’ Welch is celebrating his return to the stage after undergoing emergency surgery in Russia.
The guitarist, who quit the group in 2005 and rejoined full-time in 2013, was hospitalized during the band’s tour and underwent an operation to remove kidney stones before flying back home last week for further treatment.
Welch has made a good recovery and he returned to the stage with Korn at the Rockfest festival in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday night.
He writes in a post on his page, “Right back at it again as ADTR (rock group A Day to Remember) says. First show back w/ (with) KoRn tonite (sic) and it was crazy. 50,000 people? Wow, thx (thanks) Rockfest…”
