It’s a shame Korn didn’t get to go all-out on touring for their 2019 record The Nothing. The album was a significant one for the band, and big tours with acts like Faith No More were in place, but like everyone else in this world, Korn’s plans were scuttled by 2020 and COVID-19. Now, Korn diehards will get to hear new material for The Nothing live for the first time, as the band has now announced a global livestream event in which they’ll go deep into the album.

Korn: Monumental, as the stream is being called, will be broadcast from the set of Stranger Things: The Drive-In Experience on April 24th. The show will kick off at 1pm PST/4pm EST/9pm BST, and will not only feature some deep-cut favorites of the band, but will also include select material from The Nothing being performed live for the first time.

“We hope you take part in this experience with us,” says frontman Jonathan Davis. “And though it is not the same as performing live with you here, we still want to bring you some great music and a fun show.”

“It’s always exciting to break new ground with a band like Korn that has been with us for so many of our biggest festival moments over the years,” says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. “The scale of the vision for this global stream event is even more than we’ve come to expect out of a Korn show and will be one of the biggest livestream events from a rock band we’ve seen yet. If you’ve ever wanted to know what a massive rock concert coming to life in your living room might look like, this is it. So turn out the lights, turn up the volume and get ready to rock.”

Check out an official trailer for the livestream below. Tickets, merch bundles, and virtual meet-and-greet passes are available to buy via the band’s live site.

And if you want to experience Korn live at all costs, catch them at one of their upcoming rescheduled dates with Faith No More.
