Metal Insider’s Top 5: Defunct Touring Festivals

Posted by on July 8, 2013

3. Family Values Tour

Launched in 1998, the Family Values Tour became the ultimate tour to catch nu metal’s biggest names (namely Korn and Limp Bizkit) on the same stage as some of rap’s biggest names (Ice Cube, to be exact). The first year also gave Rammstein its first break in front of a big U.S. audience. While it had similar success the following year (featuring bands like Staind on the same bill as Method Man, among others), the tour took 2000 off and made a weak comeback in 2001 with a lineup that featured Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, Puddle Of Mudd and Static X. Family Values went into hibernation again until Korn resurrected the tour in 2006 (featuring bands like Deftones and Stone Sour) and 2007 (with Evanescence, Hellyeah, Trivium and many others). The tour hasn’t happened since 2007, and whether Korn will bring it back from the dead again remains to be seen (though unlikely).
