Launch Radio Networks reports: It's still over three months until Election Day, but the Family Values crowd is on the move. KORN resurrects the tour of that name tomorrow (Saturday, July 29) in Antioch, Tennessee, with a line-up featuring DEFTONES, 10 YEARS, STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and others. This will be KORN singer Jonathan Davis' first live excursion since a blood infection felled him in Europe last month, and he told Launch he's chomping at the bit. "We're just gonna go out there and rock the house," he said. "I think I'm gonna be extra hungry 'cause it was taken away from me from Europe, so it's gonna be good. Production-wise, I mean, it's gonna be different, it'll be cool. I mean, we've got stripper poles, wading pools, paintball gun fields, all kinds of crazy, weird s*** that we're gonna be doing in each town, so it should be good."
Davis spent much of the last month recovering from the rare, potentially fatal disorder that forced KORN to cancel most of its European tour in June.
The first Family Values package debuted in 1998 and featured RAMMSTEIN, LIMP BIZKIT, ICE CUBE and ORGY in addition to KORN. Two later editions, in 1999 and 2001, included acts like STAIND, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, LINKIN PARK, FILTER and METHOD MAN.
This summer's tour is offering lawn tickets for a mere $9.99 at each stop. Davis said that the group's recent partnership with the Live Nation concert organization is allowing them to keep prices down.
