The fact that bassist Fieldy is not included on the tour poster suggests that, once again, he will be sitting out this tour. 

The bassist, real name Reggie Arvizu, revealed in June that it had been “suggested” to him that he should sit out the group’s 28-city US summer tour, in order to “heal”, acknowledging that his behaviour “has caused some tension with the people around me.”

“I will be working towards getting the bad habits out of my system,” he wrote in a June 21 social media post. “Jonathan, Munky, Ray and Head, I love you and I don't want to bring any tension or bad vibes to the circle."

It seems that the door is not yet open for the bassist to return.

“I love him; he’s my brother,” Jonathan Davis recently told Kerrang! “But I watched somebody I care about die [the singer’s estranged wife Deven died of an accidental overdose in 2018] and I’m not going to fucking do that again. I refuse to. I will feel guilt for the rest of my fucking life because of that. I tried my hardest but perhaps if I’d been a little bit tougher there’d have been a different outcome. I pray that he can figure it out and get better and come back and be a huge part of this band again.”
