Korn Announce 'Follow The Leader' 20th Anniversary Celebration Shows
GRAMMY-winning metal band Korn have announced three special U.S. shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark third album, 1998's Follow The Leader.
The short West Coast run starts in San Francisco on Sept. 12, then heads to Los Angeles on Sept. 13 before concluding in Las Vegas on Sept. 15. According to Blabbermouth, Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch recently revealed these will be the band's only tour dates this year, but they'll embark on a "cool tour" in 2019.
Follow The Leader arrived on Aug. 18, 1998, and climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 on its way to being certified five times platinum by the RIAA. The hit single "Freak On A Leash" earned Korn a GRAMMY win for Best Short Form Music Video and a nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards.
Korn singer Jonathan Davis has also reportedly said the band is working on its 13th album, the follow up to 2016's The Serenity Of Suffering, which yielded a GRAMMY nomination for "Rotting In Vain" for Best Metal Performance at the 59th GRAMMY Awards.
Davis is also gearing up for the release of his first solo album, Black Labyrinth, which is due out May 25.
Tickets for the three special Follow The Leader 20th-anniversary shows go on sale Friday, May 18, via the band's website.
