Korn Announces “Serenity Of Summer” Headlining Tour w Stone Sour and More

Now that the Spring is heading our way, the tour announcements will be coming in fast and furious and I’ll be doing my best to bring you as many as possible to keep you in the awareness zone. Korn is the latest one and this tour will very likely please some while annoying some others based on the roster. Dig in.

The Press Release:
Roadrunner recording legends KORN have announced plans for a truly diverse and epic summer tour, set to get underway June 16th at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City, UT and then continue through early August. Presented by Live Nation, “The Serenity of Summer” tour will feature special guests and fellow Roadrunner recording group Stone Sour on all dates. The powerfully eclectic tour is rounded out by support from Japan’s female fronted Baby Metal, southern rapper Yelawolf and Islander (6/16 – 6/25), followed by a second leg (7/19 – 8/2) which will see KORN joined by Skillet, Yelawolf and DED, creating a versatile bill reminiscent of KORN’s famed “Family Values” tours in the past (see itinerary below).
