Family Values Tour is back. Good news it's in Va Beach on the 27th of July here. Bad news, that's a Thursday.
MTV.com is reporting that KORN and DEFTONES will be co-headlining this year's Family Values Tour. Rounding out the mainstage lineup will be STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY. For the first time, the trek will also feature a second stage, with acts to be announced soon. "We're gonna have some hip-hop acts and some other variety stuff gong on,"
KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told MTV.com. KORN are putting the value in Family Values, offering $9.99 lawn tickets at each stop on the tour, which kicks off July 27 in Virginia Beach. "No band can go down to $9.99 and do the production and that kind of stuff that we're doing, but the deal we did [becoming equal partners with EMI and promoters Live Nation] allows us to be able to do that, which is really cool," Davis said.
"I don't want to slap bands for making their ticket prices so high, 'cause I understand production and that stuff costs a lot. ... But MADONNA's are like 300 bucks a ticket. I can't even believe that. Ten bucks for a show is ridiculous, and I think kids that aren't KORN fans will wanna go just to check out other bands or just go to have a good time."
