KORN and DEFTONES will be teaming up for the resurrected Family Values tour late summer/early fall, according to official MySpace bulletins posted by both bands earlier today.
The Family Values Tour was created by KORN in 1998 with the intention of making it an annual trek. KORN headlined the first tour, then passed the headlining spot to LIMP BIZKIT in 1999. The tour took the year off in 2000 due to heavy competition.
Since the tour started, many bands have featured on the bill, such as INCUBUS, ORGY, LIMP BIZKIT, ICE CUBE, RAMMSTEIN, PRIMUS, STAIND, METHOD MAN & REDMAN, THE CRYSTAL METHOD, FILTER, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, LINKIN PARK, STATIC-X, and DEADSY.
Guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer recently hinted that the tour may return when he spoke to Launch Radio Networks.
"We're trying to put together something similar to, like, a Family Values kind of a thing," he said. "We don't know if we're gonna call it that or not, but we wanna put together something sort of a festival feel, where there's four bands on the main stage and then there's four or five bands on a side stage. We want to make our own Kornfest type of thing."
