KORN launched the Family Values tour in true gothic style last night (Thursday, April 19) by rocking Los Angeles' most famous graveyard.
The band hosted the "Halloween In Spring Costume Ball" at the Hollywood Forever cemetery.
Guests at the event included MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, as well as members of P.O.D., POWERMAN 5000, DEADSY and ARMY OF ANYONE.
The much-anticipated return of The Family Values Tour, co-headlined by KORN and EVANESCENCE, will commence on July 20 in St. Louis and close out the summer on September 2 in sunny California. With a line-up including ATREYU, FLYLEAF, HELLYEAH, and TRIVIUM, the tour is poised to be the biggest and best Family Values Tour in history with the best-priced lawn tickets at $9.99. Tickets go on sale beginning April 28 and can be purchased at www.livenation.com.
KORN announced yesterday that Joey Jordison from SLIPKNOT will be their special guest drummer for this summer's tour as well as for their European festival shows in June and July. Jonathan Davis said, "Joey is the sh*t!! We can't wait to rock onstage with him this summer!"
Joey Jordison said, "I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to perform with bands that have influenced me as a musician over the years. When I first heard KORN they blew me away and I've been a fan ever since. I'm looking forward to playing drums with these guys for the next five months!"
KORN is currently in the studio recording their second album for their ground-breaking deal with Virgin Records, currently set for release on July 24.
