Korn and Limp Bizkit announce co-headline tour

By | Published on Thursday 15 September 2016


Korn and Limp Bizkit have announced a co-headlining tour of the UK this December. The first time I ever saw Limp Bizkit was supporting Korn at Brixton Academy in 1997. True story. Pitchshifter were on first. What a line-up.

My main memory of that night is Fred Durst saying, “Who here likes George Michaels?” before Limp Bizkit played their cover of ‘Faith’. I think that might have been the start of my tendency to unnecessarily pluralise words for my own amusement, but who can really say?

Anyway, who knows what Fred Durst might say this time which may or may not prompt a teenager to invent a stupid game in their head that keeps them entertained for the next 20 years? I wonder what Korn think. “We’re really proud of our new album and we can’t wait to play these songs for our amazing fans in the UK, they are some of the best in the world! This tour is gonna be sick!”

I don’t think any of that related to what I was saying. Try harder next time, Korn. Limp Bizkit have not issued a statement, because they are obviously saving themselves for inspirational crap-word-game-triggering at the shows themselves.

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Friday. The dates are these:

12 Dec: Manchester Arena
14 Dec: Glasgow, SSE Hydro
15 Dec: Birmingham, Barclaycard Arena
16 Dec: London, Wembley Arena
18 Dec: Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena
19 Dec: Nottingham, Motorpoint Arena

Oh, and look, here’s the video for Korn’s new single, ‘Rotting In Vain’:
