One of this summer’s highly anticipated tours, Korn and Evanescence, kicked off this week in Denver, CO. Reviews of the tour opener give indicate concertgoers will not be disappointed when the tour comes to Auburn, on September 15th.
“The Bakersfield alt-metal pioneers and the heavy rock unit led by Amy Lee each played their own incredible sets filled with new bangers and old-school favorites alike,” said heavy metal/hard rock magazine Revolver in a review.
Though it has been 15 years since the Grammy-winning bands and longtime friends have done a full tour together (Family Values, 2007), readers of Revolver voted Korn and Evanescence as two of the top five live bands in a 2001 poll.
Korn will highlight new tracks from their latest album Requiem (Feb. 2022) while interlacing familiar favorites from their vast catalog throughout their set. Playing before Korn, Evanescence’s set will feature their most recent album, 2021’s The Bitter Truth along with their popular songs like “Going Under,” and “Bring Me to Life.”

One of the highlights of the tour kickoff was Amy Lee returning to stage for the final song of the night, ‘Freak on a Leash.’ The song, though not acoustic, is a throwback to Lee’s special guest appearance with the band during their 2006 MTV Unplugged performance (ya know, back when MTV still played music.)
