Korn & Alice In Chains Announce Joint North American Summer Tour
Today two legendary rock groups—GRAMMY winners Korn and GRAMMY nominees Alice In Chains—announced a massive co-headline tour across North America this summer. The 30-show trek will have the two bands, along with support from GRAMMY nominees Underoath and FEVER 333 plus punk-infused hip-hop group Ho99o9, performing at amphitheaters from mid-July until early September.
Korn also shared that their highly anticipated 13th studio album is on the way in 2019.

The big tour begins on July 18 in Texas at the Austin360 Amphitheatre, moving east with stops along the way in Nashville, Tenn. on July 26 at the Bridgestone Arena, Wanatagh, N.Y. on Aug. 6 at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, one of two major outdoor venues in the New York metro area. Their run will also hit Canada, stopping in Toronto on Aug. 14, followed by Midwest and Southwest stops, including Cincinnati on Aug. 18 and Albuquerque, N.M. on Aug. 27, before closing things out in Northern California on Sep. 4 at Shoreline Amphitheatre.
Underoath, who received their second GRAMMY nomination at the 61st GRAMMY Awards for Best Metal Performance, will be offering support on all 30 show dates. FEVER 333, who were first-time GRAMMY nominees and recently released their debut LP, will open during shows on the last half of the tour, with Ho99o9 opening most shows during the first half.
Alice In Chains received their ninth GRAMMY nomination this year, for Best Rock Album for Rainier Fog, their sixth studio album, and their first album since 2013's The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
According to a statement released by the band, "Korn are currently in the studio finishing up work on their widely anticipated follow-up to The Serenity Of Suffering, which will be released later this year." 2016's The Serenity Of Suffering earned them a GRAMMY nod for Best Metal Performance for "Rotting in Vain" at the 59th GRAMMY Awards. They took home their first win at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards for Best Short Form Music Video for "Freak On A Leash."
