Korn and Evanescence have officially announced a tour! Yesterday, both bands posted a cryptic visual teaser on their respective social media channels. Fans were trying to guess what the two bands could be planning together, and as of today, both bands have announced a summer tour!
Both Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and Evanescence singer Amy Lee have commented on the upcoming tour.
Per Davis, “We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends Evanescence, out. Whenever Amy [Lee, Evanescence singer] comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.”
Amy Lee added: “I fell hard into Korn’s music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we’ve had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen. It’s an honor and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since ’07. We’re all really looking forward to this.”
Special guests will appear throughout the tour for select dates.
