Family Values Tour Expands With Second Stage And 'Guitar Hero II' Competition!
The second stage will also include the largest national competition for the nation's hottest electronic game, Guitar Hero to date. A "face-off" competition between eight Guitar Hero II finalists in each market, winners from earlier Radio Station sponsored events will play Guitar Hero II on stage between sets and compete for an autographed Korn guitar, band access passes and a chance to play Jonathan Davis backstage after the show.
Korn have been longstanding fans of the game with Jonathan Davis going public on his obsession with Guitar Hero in the Wall Street Journal in November 2006. Davis admitted to spending as much time on the tour bus playing the game as he did on stage performing! Said Davis, "This is the hottest game in the country and we 're stoked to have them on the tour."
About Family Values: Korn, along with management company The Firm, created The Family Values Tour in 1998 with a bill headlined by Korn and performances from Rammstein, Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit and Orgy. 1999's line-up featured headliners Limp Bizkit, along with Filter, The Crystal Method, Primus, Staind, Mobb Deep, Ja Rule, and Method Man & Redman. Korn also made surprise appearances at a few dates. Beyond the live touring aspect, the debut outing of Korn Family Values Tour spawned a gold-certified live album and platinum-certified companion home video. This was followed in spring 2000 with the second live disc and long-form home video. The 2001 trek featured Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, Staind, Static-X and Deadsy. Family Values continued in the summer of 2006 with Korn, Deftones, Stone Sour, Flyleaf and Dir en grey on the main stage resulting in another live CD and DVD making it one of the most consistently successful tour franchises in music history.
