KORN, DEFTONES, STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF, DIR EN GREY To Team Up For FAMILY VALUES Tour

MTV.com is reporting that KORN and DEFTONES will be co-headlining this year's Family Values Tour. Rounding out the mainstage lineup will be STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY.

For the first time, the trek will also feature a second stage, with acts to be announced soon. "We're gonna have some hip-hop acts and some other variety stuff gong on," KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told MTV.com.

KORN are putting the value in Family Values, offering $9.99 lawn tickets at each stop on the tour, which kicks off July 27 in Virginia Beach.

"No band can go down to $9.99 and do the production and that kind of stuff that we're doing, but the deal we did [becoming equal partners with EMI and promoters Live Nation] allows us to be able to do that, which is really cool," Davis said. "I don't want to slap bands for making their ticket prices so high, 'cause I understand production and that stuff costs a lot. ... But MADONNA's are like 300 bucks a ticket. I can't even believe that. Ten bucks for a show is ridiculous, and I think kids that aren't KORN fans will wanna go just to check out other bands or just go to have a good time."
