Metal stalwarts, Korn, will soon be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their ground-breaking album, ‘Follow the Leader.’ A trio of new dates in the fall will be part of the festivities.
Things have been quiet on the band front in 2018 with lead vocalist Jonathan Davis on a solo tour promoting his ‘Black Labryrinth’ ‘ album and guitarist Brian Welch focusing on his ‘Loud Krazy Love’ documentary. For the most part the band has taken the year off, but the hints are that the inactivity is about to come to an end.
Korn wanted to do something to mark the anniversary of ‘Follow the Leader.’ The group has booked a trio of shows — Sept. 12 at the Masonic in San Francisco, Sept. 13 at the Hollywood Palladium and Sept. 15 at Las Vegas’ Pearl Concert Theater — where they will revisit the 1998 album in full. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (May 18) via the band’s website.
‘Follow the Leader’ has been certified five-times platinum by the RIAA. It features the band’s first major radio hit with “Got the Life.”
So far, only the three dates have been announced, but stay tuned for more announcements leading up to shows in 2019.
