Korn will hit the road with fellow hard-rock heavyweights Staind for a summer 2021 U.S. tour. The 28-city outing will feature opening acts ’68 and Fire From the Gods at select dates.
After having last year’s planned co-headlining tour with Faith No More canceled due the pandemic, Korn will be able to continue to support their well-received 2019 album, The Nothing. Staind, meanwhile, had reunited for a few shows in fall of 2019 after a five-year hiatus, with plans to tour more extensively in 2020. This will mark the band’s first full tour since 2014.
The newly announced tour will kick off on August 5th in West Palm Beach, Florida, and run through a September 21st show in Dallas. Both bands will then play the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky, on September 23rd. Korn are also slated to play a couple of dates with System of a Down and Faith No More at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on October 22nd and 23rd.
The tour announcement comes after Korn played a livestream show from the set of the Stranger Things: Drive Into Experience in Los Angeles, and after Staind recently streamed two concerts, including one in which they performed their multiplatinum 2001 album Break the Cycle in its entirety.
A pre-sale for the tour begins Thursday (May 13th) at 10 a.m. local time, while the general onsale launches Friday (May 14th) at noon local time via Ticketmaster. If shows sell out, tickets can also be purchased here. See the full list of dates below.
