The band announced today came just hours before they were scheduled to take the stage with Korn, Helmet and Russian Circles at Banc of California Stadium.
Tankian said on social media that he had tested positive for COVID-19. The 54-year-old Tankian said he was fully vaccinated, and said he had been “incredibly careful” over the course of the pandemic.
The shows will now be held on February 4 and 5, 2022.
The Los Angeles shows were eagerly awaited by fans. After a 15-year hiatus, System of a Down finally released new music last year to spotlight the problems in the ongoing war between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Some of System of a Down’s biggest hits include “Chop Suey,” “Toxicity,” and “B.Y.O.B.”
