Back in September, Disturbed frontman David Draiman teased that they were going to be co-headlining the next installment of their annual Music As A Weapon tour with a “huge” band. We had our fun guessing who their co-headliner may be, but now it’s official that it’ll be none other than fellow nu-metal giants Korn. Joining the two on the bill will be Sevendust and In This Moment.
Draiman had the following to say:
“Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it’s going to be our best tour yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve.”
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis added the following:
“We both agreed that as cool as those types of tours are, they usually only hit major markets, and we both agreed that a lot of our fans just don’t live in those cities, etc. … we thought it would be cool to team up, put a big show together and hit every great place that those big tours never get to. Besides all that, with us and Disturbed together, doing full shows with full production … all I can say is it’s on!”
Not only will the bands be hitting smaller markets during their 45 date tour (with more details suppose to be released on November 29), but they’re also offering a special early bird special. The first 1,000 tickets from each show that will be going on sale this weekend will be sold at a $5 discount. Whether you’re a fan of either band or not, you have to admit that this is a pretty solid tour. Both headliners put on great live performances and will complement each other very well. Besides, if you’re lucky enough to snatch one of the discounted tickets, then there’s nothing to lose. Only a handful of cities have been revealed with dates and more cities to be revealed shortly.
