LiveDaily.com reports: A second stage, more bands and a video-game contest have been added to this summer's Family Values Tour.

The festival's fifth installment is set to kick off July 20 with Korn and Evanescence topping the bill and sharing the main stage with Atreyu, Flyleaf, Trivium, and Hell Yeah, the new band comprising Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and members of Mudvayne and Nothingface.

The second stage, sponsored by RedOctane video game "Guitar Hero," will host five additional bands, including up-and-comers Five Finger Death Punch, Invitro and Twin Method. Between sets, a national "Guitar Hero II" competition will take place on stage, with competitors vying for an autographed Korn guitar, band access passes and a chance to challenge Korn frontman Jonathan Davis to a game after the show.

The 30-city trek starts in Maryland Heights, MO, and makes its way across the US, wrapping in early September with four shows in California. The caravan of rockers is also set to stop in Toronto July 31st. Details are listed below.

As they did last year, organizers will offer $9.99 lawn seats in most cities.

Family Values, which Korn created with its management company in 1998, returned to the stage last summer following a five-year hiatus and saw its most successful run to date.

Korn is scheduled to release its eighth studio album, which won't have a name, on July 31. The set's first single, "Evolution," and a video that documents the making of the song, are streaming at Korn's website.

So does this mean they still have to add 2 bands?
It would be cool to see Five Finger Death Punch, like their stuff and they have toured much, not nationally anyway. Invitro, I've seen them twice and hated them both times, they were an opener for Sevendust and for Static X. Not good, expected more from a guy who played with Snot and Soulfly. Overall this looks like a weak line-up.

I'm really looking forward to Five Finger Death Punch also! And yeah I agree 100% that Invitro was absolutely HORRIBLE. I couldn't believe that sh**. I really don't care to see them again.

Haha, how will fans be able to tell the Guitar Hero competition from the main stage???

Jesus this tour is disappointing. Even the Family Values Tour with Staind and Static-X was better than this, because at least then Stone Temple Pilots were there.

Oh for Gods sake, get a fu*&ing life and a better attitude. This show will be amazing. The bands are amazing. The show I'm going to is outdoors which makes up for any lack of anything else. I'm a music snob to a certain extent, but to say this lineup sucks is pure stupidity and a blatant lie.

To say they are amazing is just as much of a lie. I've got no problem if you like them, to each their own. I am not bashing these bands, but they are far from amazing.
