1998 was the year that Korn started “The Family Values Tour”, and the mega event was a powerful alternative to that of Ozzfest since it offered the audience a wide mix of Metal, Rap and Hard Rock acts instead of being a strictly Metal performance. Their hectic touring and demanding roles as a growing band would keep Korn from headlining the show for a number of years until 2006. In their absence such talent as Stone Temple Pilots kept the level of quality high for the fans. The performance in 2006 would be a triumphant return for the band as they were not only supporting their latest release “See You On The Other Side” but also headlining over some of today’s most popular groups. The Nu-Metal giants would find support from such staple acts as The Deftones, Dir En Grey, Flyleaf, Deadsy, Stone Sour and 10 Years. The trend in releasing both a CD and DVD of the event would continue as well and this film is the perfect way to enjoy some of what happened at these shows.

Another concert that offers the fans of Metal and Hard Rock something to do is the Family Values Tour and in 2006 this event placed Nu-Metal titans Korn on the top billing. They had just successfully toured their latest album “See You On The Other Side” and with this show would bring with them some truly killer groups to make this a very memorable evening for all who attended. Other acts included Stone Sour, 10 Years, The Deftones, Flyleaf and Deadsy and each of them are presented on the CD. As I looked over the lineup I felt that this was a concert tour that answered the prayers of the angst-ridden youth of the day far better than something like Ozzfest would do since so many of these bands find this demographic among their core audience attendees. Stone Sour is one of the best inclusions on the release and features Corey Taylor and James Root of Slipknot. Together they perform music that is far different from what they did together in that band. Their 2nd album recently came out and is a solid listen as well as a recommendation.
