October 11, 2006
On December 26, hard rock fans can get another taste of one of the music world’s most successful tours when 'The Family Values Tour 2006' CD and separate DVD are released on Firm Music. The CD and DVD will feature live tracks from Korn and Deftones, as well as select cuts from all the bands on the bill: Stone Sour, Flyleaf, Dir en grey, 10 Years, Deadsy, Bury Your Dead, Bullets and Octane and Walls of Jericho. Highlights include: One-of-a-kind duets, acoustic tracks and cover songs including a special appearance from Richard Patrick (Army of Anyone, Filter). These upcoming releases mark the fourth in the series (The Family Values Tour '98, The Family Values Tour '99 and The Family Values Tour '01).

This summer more than 400,000 wildly enthusiastic fans turned out for the 30 shows on The Family Values Tour--that was headlined and founded by Korn. Kicking off with a sold-out show of 17,000 rocking fans at Nashville’s Starwood Amphitheatre, The Family Values Tour set new attendance records.

Stay tuned for additional details on The Family Values Tour 2006.

The first Family Values Tour launched on September 22, 1998 with a bill headlined by Korn and with performances from Rammstein, Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit and Orgy. 1999's line-up featured headliners Limp Bizkit, along with Filter, The Crystal Method, Primus, Staind, Mobb Deep, Ja Rule, and Method Man & Redman. Korn also made surprise appearances at a few dates. Beyond the live touring aspect, the debut outing of The Family Values Tour spawned a gold-certified live album and platinum-certified companion home video. This was followed in spring 2000 with the second live disc and long-form home video. The 2001 trek featured Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, Staind, Static-X and Deadsy.

Korn, Deftones Members Comment On Atlanta Concert Death
August 23, 2006
At the July 30 Family Values tour stop in Atlanta, a fan suffered a fatal brain injury after being sucker-punched during an argument. Andy Richardson, 30, died two days later. Police have since made an arrest.

Singer Chino Moreno of co-headlining band the Deftones expressed real regret to the Los Angeles Times over Richardson's death.

"I always make a point, when we're playing, if I see someone fighting we'll stop the song and tell them to chill out," he said. "Then we'll continue with the music. The music is secondary to people's safety."

"We were real sad," Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told the Los Angeles Times. "It's not the safest place to go, no matter who you are. Last night onstage I got hit in the back with a quarter, also with a cellphone. I get [stuff] thrown at me all night long."

Korn meets with fans at every tour stop.

"I've been fortunate enough to learn a lot from different people, being around the world," Shaffer said. "Everybody has the same problems, the same four or five things that they all struggle with: relationships, finance, personal issues. It keeps me grounded, you know?"

Korn's The Family Values Tour's Stages Triumphant Return
August 12, 2006
Korn's The Family Values Tour is back — in a big way — as fans in the south are turning out in record numbers to see this summer's hottest tour.

Kicking off with a sold-out show of 17,000 rocking fans at Nashville's Starwood Amphitheatre, The Family Values Tour has gone on to set new numbers for the tour Korn created and headlined in 1998, as evidenced by shows in Atlanta, GA (17,900), San Antonio (17,000), Dallas (19,000) and Houston (18,000).

The tremendous response to The Family Values Tour comes on the heels of Korn's platinum-plus selling album 'See You on the other Side', which has been in the Billboard Top 100 for 35 weeks, and is the first release of their ground-breaking new joint venture deal with EMI and Live Nation.

"Korn's new deals are working for all involved," said Peter Katsis, senior VP of music at The Firm, co-owners of The Family Values Tour. "Through all of Korn's new partnerships, we are able to blow up the Korn brand as well as being able to deliver a great bill and a great day for Korn fans."

"The fact that a fan can see an entire day of music — all great bands — and participate in other festival activities all for a value price has generated a groundswell of demand for this concert," said Live Nation Executive Vice President of Amphitheatre Programming, Jason Garner. "With the bulk of the tour dates still to come, we expect The Family Values Tour to become one of the most successful tours of the summer."

Along with Korn, this year's other main stage artists are Deftones, Stone Sour, Flyleaf and Dir En Grey. With nine artists on the tour and a variety of attractions on the "Family Values Campus" — including 3-on-3 paintball competition — fans get even greater value from the Live Nation-produced The Family Values Tour, which also features 10 Years, Deadsy, Bury Your Dead and Bullets And Octane.
