Insert punny joke about “Are you ready?” Nu metal will be back in venues this summer, with dates announced for Korn’s U.S. summer tour featuring very special guests Staind on all shows.  

The 28-city outing is filled with amphitheater shows from coast to coast, kicking off Aug. 5 in West Palm Beach, Fla., at iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre. Produced by Live Nation, the tour includes gigs at Darien Lake Amphitheater in Darien Center, N.Y.; DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit; USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City; Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif.; and Germania Insurance Amphitheater in Austin, Texas. The last stop on the routing is a festival appearance for both bands at Louder Than Life in Louisville, Ky., at Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center. 
Korn and Staind will be joined by ’68 and Fire From the Gods in select cities. 
Korn’s latest album is 2019’s The Nothing, which marked the band’s 14th Top 10 entry on the Billboard 200. Singles included “You’ll Never Find Me,” “Can You Hear Me,” and “Cold.” 2019 was also a big year for Staind with the band returning to the stage after a five-year hiatus for festival performances and a hometown reunion show at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. The band recorded its new live album, Live: It’s Been Awhile, at the Mashantucket show and the release is due out June 25.
Reports submitted to Pollstar for Korn include a Korn/Breaking Benjamin co-bill show on Feb. 27, 2020, at the Moda Center in Portland, Ore., that sold 6,831 and grossed $482,470. 
A presale for the 2021 tour is ongoing now. The general onsale starts Friday, May 14 at 12 p.m. local time. Check out the routing below:
