Korn / Staind

Joel Voorman

GRAMMY® Award-winning rock iconoclasts Korn created a culture with their landmark self-titled full-length debut. Generations of fans turned the band into a household name with two GRAMMY® Awards, sales of 40 million albums worldwide, hundreds of sold out shows, and over 1 billion streams-unprecedented for a rock band of any era.

How many artists can boast being mentioned in a speech by President Barack Obama and holding a place on Rolling Stone’s “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” list?

Originally formed in 1993 by three members of the band L.A.P.D., Korn’s current lineup features founding members James “Munky” Shaffer (rhythm guitar), Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu (bass), Brian “Head” Welch (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Jonathan Davis (lead vocals, bagpipes), with the addition of Ray Luzier (drums) in 2007.

Their debut album, ‘Korn, ‘was released in 1994, followed by ‘Life Is Peachy‘ in 1996. The band first experienced mainstream success with ‘Follow the Leader’ (1998) and Issues (1999), both of which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The band’s mainstream success continued with ‘Untouchables’ (2002), ‘Take a Look in the Mirror’ (2003) and ‘See You on the Other Side’ (2005).

Some of their hit singles include “Got the Life,” “Freak On a Leash,” “Falling Away From Me,” “Here to Stay,” “Y’all Want A Single,” “Get Up,” (w/Skrillex), “Spike In my Veins,” and “Can You Hear Me.”

Christened “The Last Rock ‘n’ Roll Superstars” by The Ringer and “the soundtrack for a generation’s arrival” by The Fader, Korn endure as a raw, relevant, and real force. Bringing everything full circle, 2019’s THE NOTHING remains a testament to their sustained impact. The record marked their 14th Top 10 entry on the Billboard Top 200 and lifted them into rarified air with “The Fifth-Most Top 10s on the Chart.”

Aaron Lewis fronted group Staind will co-headline the show. Over the course of their career, the band released seven studio albums and eight Top 10 singles, selling over 15 million albums worldwide. ‘Break The Cycle, ‘released in 2001 and RIAA certified 5x platinum, featured the smash single, “It’s Been A While,” one of the most played songs in modern rock radio history, spending 20 weeks at Number 1.

The band’s activity became more sporadic after their self-titled release, with Lewis pursuing a solo country music career, but they have continued to tour on and off in the following years. In 2016, Lewis reiterated that the band had not broken up, and would possibly create another album, but that his then-current focus was on his solo career. The band reunited more permanently in 2019 for several shows, continuing with live appearances in 2020. Many of their singles have reached high positions on US rock and all-format charts as well, including “It’s Been Awhile”, “Fade”, “Price to Play”, “So Far Away”, and “Right Here”.
