Korn brings back 'The Family Values Tour'
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Korn and Evanescence to Co-Headline This Year's Family Values Tour

One of the greatest brands in summer rock festivals is back! Multi-platinum, Grammy-winning hard rock bands Korn and Evanescence will co-headline the best and most distinctive Family Values Tour line-up yet. Co-headliners Korn and Evanescence are proud to be sharing the traveling festival's main stage with Atreyu, Flyleaf, HELLYEAH (featuring members of Pantera and Mudvayne), and Trivium.


Korn and Evanescence to co-headline this year's Family Values Tour  

In another first for Korn, the official announcement was first made last night direct to fans on VirtualMTV.com on the world's first Virtual Press Conference. Fans got the inside tour lineup information directly from the artists, as they went online to interact with computer generated avatars of the members of Korn, and members of Atreyu, along with Vinnie Paul from HELLYEAH in a virtual world made and provided by MTV. The tour launches on July 20 in St. Louis, MO. Concert producer Live Nation will once again be on board to bring fans the multi-city trek through North America and, for the second year in a row, the cheapest lawn ticket of the summer. Additional bands and details will be announced shortly.

Korn, along with management company The Firm created and headlined The Family Values Tour in 1998 and last year's outing catapulted the festival back into the spotlight of summer tours with fans turning out in record numbers (over 400,000 tickets sold) for the hard hitting line-up and the fan friendly ticket prices. KORN was voted "Best Live Band" of 2006 by the readers of "Revolver" Magazine and The Family Values Tour re-established itself as a summer mainstay for rock fans for years to come.

"The fans really made last year's tour incredible, so we just had to do it again this year," says Korn front man Jonathan Davis. "We could not be more excited about this year's lineup!"

"We are very psyched to see some of our favorite bands and getting all of our fans together for this amazing festival," says Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee.

Through Korn's unique partnership with Live Nation, 2006's The Family Values Tour featured $9.99 lawn tickets and value-priced seating at every outdoor amphitheatre stop. This year, The Family Values Tour will once again feature the cheapest lawn ticket of the summer. "It's important to us that we do all we can to have a great line-up and make this tour affordable," says Davis. "Live music should be something that all of us should be able to share together. The success of last year's tour proves we can make a difference. I believe it has already had an effect on a lot of other tours, and that's cool!!"

The Family Values Tour will hit the following cities (dates and venues to be announced at a later date): St. Louis, MO; Minneapolis, MN; Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; Camden, NJ; Boston, MA; Washington DC; Hartford, CT; Buffalo, NY; Detroit, MI; Toronto, ON; Pittsburgh, PA; Scranton, PA; East Rutherford, NJ; Indianapolis, IN; Atlanta, GA; Orlando, FL; Miami, FL; Tampa, FL; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; San Antonia, TX; Oklahoma City, OK; Kansas City, MO; Denver, CO; Albuquerque, NM; Phoenix, AZ; Bakersfield, CA; Sacramento, CA; San Francisco, CA; Irvine, CA.
