FAMILY VALUES Tour Expands With 'Guitar Hero'-Sponsored Second Stage

This summer's Family Values tour has teamed up with RedOctane's Guitar Hero to sponsor a second stage with an additional five bands making a total of 13 acts on the tour. The trek, which includes co-headliners KORN and EVANESCENCE, ATREYU, FLYLEAF, HELLYEAH, and TRIVIUM partnered with the ultimate rock star experience, Guitar Hero, will foster hot newcomers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, INVITRO, TWIN METHOD and others to be announced shortly, on the second stage all for an added value and the best-priced lawn tickets of the summer at $9.99. The second stage will also include the largest national competition for the nation's hottest electronic game, Guitar Hero to date. A "face-off" competition between eight Guitar Hero II finalists in each market, winners from earlier radio station-sponsored events, will play Guitar Hero II on stage between sets and compete for an autographed KORN guitar, band access passes and a chance to play Jonathan Davis backstage after the show.

The mebers of KORN have been longstanding fans of the game with Jonathan Davis going public on his obsession with Guitar Hero in the Wall Street Journal in November 2006. Davis admitted to spending as much time on the tour bus playing the game as he did on stage performing! Said Davis, "This is the hottest game in the country and we are stoked to have them on the tour."
