Korn and Evanescence were each voted by Revolver readers as two of the top five live bands of 2021, and now they're merging their powers for a tour together in 2022. The bands have announced an 18-date trek across the U.S. that begins in August and wraps up in September, with special guest openers who will be announced at a later date.
The run begins August 16th in Denver and snakes throughout the Midwest, out East, down South and eventually wraps up with a three-day stint in Washington that ends in Ridgefield on September 16th. Korn will of course be showcasing material from their 2022 opus, Requiem, while Evanescence will be playing in support of their 2021 comeback album, The Bitter Truth.
"We're looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence, out," said Korn's Jonathan Davis. "Whenever Amy [Lee] comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We're gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can't wait to see you there."
"I fell hard into Korn's music in high school," Lee added. "It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we've had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I've ever seen. It's an honor and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since '07. We're all really looking forward to this."
Tickets for the whole run go on sale this Friday April 8th at 10 a.m. local time via LiveNation.com. See the full list of dates below.
