Korn To Play Self-Titled Debut Album in Its Entirety During Fall 2015 U.S. Tour
Korn began commemorating the 20th anniversary of their 1994 self-titled album with shows in 2014, and will wrap up the celebration with an October tour in which they'll play the disc in its entirety at all stops.
Openers for the trek that kicks off Oct. 1 in Chicago are Suicide Silence and Islander. A limited number of tickets and early entry packages will go on sale tomorrow (July 22) at 10AM local time via Korn.com. Regular tickets for most shows go on sale Friday, July 24.
In an interview with Loudwire, guitarist Munky talked about playing Korn in its entirety: "You can tell we were just kids and we were developing, uncovering and polishing a sound that we didn’t know was going to take off so much. A lot of other bands — guys in bands come up to me now. Young bands say, 'You’ve inspired us.'"
Munky continues, "I’m starting to get that, seeing a lot of the fans come with their kids kind of bridging a generation. It’s a trip. Playing the songs are a lot of fun because they’re kind of kooky with the structures and sometimes it doesn’t make sense, but at the time it did. It’s a lot of fun. It brings back a lot of good memories."
Korn featured several singles such as "Blind," "Clown," "Need To" and "Shoots and Ladders." Produced by Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Machine Head), the album has sold more than 2 million copies.
