Family Values update… Korn plans tour?
This year’s Family Values Tour featuring Stone Temple Pilots, Staind, Linkin Park, Static-X and Deadsy has experienced a number of problems since the tour got underway earlier this month. On the eve of the tour kickoff in Cleveland, Oh on October 11th organizers announced that a series of dates had been cancelled outright. Scheduled stops in Houston, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Little Rock, and Las Vegas were scrapped with organizers announcing, “These shows will not be rescheduled for a later date.”
This week tour organizers announced that two future shows on the tour have undergone venue changes. According to the Family Values Tour official website “The October 30th, Charlotte show has moved from the Charlotte Coliseum to Cricket Arena (formerly Independence Arena)…The November 11, Phoenix show moves from America West Arena to Veterans Memorial Coliseum.”
In related news, rumors have surfaced on the Internet that Family Values founder’s Korn are planning a Winter European tour with Linkin Park and Adema with a U.S. tour to follow next Spring after the release of Korn’s new album in February. antiMUSIC was unable to confirm this at press time. However, if these rumors turn out to be true the European tour can not start until at least December as Linkin Park currently have the remaining Family Values dates and their headlining “count down to revolution tour 2001” with Hed(pe) on tap through early December. If this tour does materialize it would be a family affair as newcomers Adema is fronted by Marky Chavez, half-brother to Korn’s Jonathon Davis.
