Korn and Disturbed have been confirmed to co-headline
Monster Energy's "Music as a Weapon 5" tour, which is going to
hit cities across the U.S. in winter 2011.
"We've both just finished great tours," tells Korn singer
Jonathan Davis. "We headlined Mayhem and Disturbed headlined Uproar.
The Disturbed guys came out to see us play in Chicago and we started
talking about doing something together. We both agreed that as cool as
those types of tours are, they usually only hit major markets and we both
agreed that a lot of our fans just don't live in those cities. So we
thought it would be cool to team up, put a big show together and hit every
great place that those big tours never get to. Besides all that, with us
and Disturbed together, doing full shows with full production...all I can
say is it's on!"
"We are thrilled to launch the Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5
Tour with our good friends from Korn," commented Disturbed singer
David Draiman. "Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by
having Korn co-headline, we really think it's going to be our best tour
yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed
upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. Itís
exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over
on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We
have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a
show that they deserve."
Tickets for the first leg of the tour are set to go on sale the weekend
of December 4. The bands have decided that the first 1000 tickets from
each show will be sold at a $5 discount during the on sale weekend in
order to reward the early buyers and fans.
"A lot of promoters only offer discounted tickets a day or two
before the actual show date," explains Disturbed guitarist Dan
Donegan. "We wanted to do something for the fans that are buying
their tickets as soon as they go on sale. To offer a discount upfront made
the most sense to us."
"We're tired of promoters offering discounted tickets to last
minute folks in order to sell the seats in the back of the gig," says
James "Munky" Shaffer. "We'd rather give our fans a
discount for buying early."
