According to the official Virgin Records e-card for KORN's upcoming "MTV Unplugged" album, this year's The Family Values Tour will feature KORN alongside EVANESCENCE, LAMB OF GOD, and AIDEN. An official announcement is expected to follow shortly.
"The Family Values Tour 2006" was released on December 26, 2006 via Firm Music. The CD and DVD features live tracks from KORN and DEFTONES, as well as select cuts from all the bands on last year's bill: STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF, DIR EN GREY, 10 YEARS and DEADSY. Highlights include: one-of-a-kind duets, acoustic tracks and cover songs, including a special appearance from Richard Patrick. These releases mark the fourth in the series ("The Family Values Tour '98", "The Family Values Tour '99" and "The Family Values Tour '01").
Last summer more than 400,000 wildly enthusiastic fans turned out for the 30 shows on The Family Values Tour 2006 — that was headlined and founded by KORN. Kicking off with a sold-out show of 17,000 rocking fans at Nashville's Starwood Amphitheatre, The Family Values Tour set new attendance records.
The first Family Values Tour launched September 22, 1998 with a bill headlined by KORN and with performances from RAMMSTEIN, ICE CUBE, LIMP BIZKIT and ORGY. 1999's line-up featured headliners LIMP BIZKIT, along with FILTER, THE CRYSTAL METHOD, PRIMUS, STAIND, MOBB DEEP, JA RULE, and METHOD MAN & REDMAN. KORN also made surprise appearances at a few dates. Beyond the live touring aspect, the debut outing of The Family Values Tour spawned a gold-certified live album and platinum-certified companion home video. This was followed in spring 2000 with the second live disc and long-form home video. The 2001 trek featured STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, LINKIN PARK, STAIND, STATIC-X and DEADSY.
