Saturday, May 18th the Budweiser Summer Stage at Tag’s welcomes Korn as the opening show for the 2013 Summer Concert Series. Gates open at 6:30pm – Show starts at 8:00pm. Special Guest to be announced soon.
Korn will never forget where they came from: a dark place where salvation arrives in the form of twisted, throbbing guitar riffs, syncopated chaotic funk beats, a schizophrenic bass thump and an unmistakable cathartic howl. Emerging from the depths of Bakersfield, California with a sound unlike any other in 1994, Korn have been able to cement themselves as one of the most important bands in rock n’ roll history.
Over the course of eight full-length releases, Korn have sold in excess of 30 million albums and played countless sold-out shows worldwide. They’ve won two Grammys—one for Best Short Form Video for “Freak on a Leash” from 1998’s Follow the Leader and one for Best Metal Performance for “Here to Stay,” from 2002’s Untouchables—and have launched a massively successful festival of their own, The Family Values Tour. However, despite all their massive success and accolades, Korn haven’t lost hold of the savage, raw energy that made them such a crucial band for diehard rock and metal fans. Korn are one of the preeminent voices of this generation.
Korn will forever be linked with their spearheading of the so-called “nu metal” movement, a more accessible variation of metal that emphasized hooks and melodies over imposingly dense arrangements or screamed, unintelligible vocals.
