Last week, we reported on how Korn drummer Ray Luzier had hinted at possible shows in the country in September. The American alternative metal band have now confirmed that they will play three dates inIndia in September. Vocalist and frontman Jonathan Davis, speaking exclusively with ROLLING STONE India, had this to say about their first visit to the country:
“We are so excited to be heading to India for the first time. It’s an incredible country with such a rich history, and we just can’t wait to perform there for the first time ever as Korn. We see so many fans on Facebook from India, and I’ve personally heard how crazy Indian fans are. All I can say is that come September, IT’S ON!”
The band will play three cities – Gurgaon on September 5th, Mumbai on September 7th and Bengaluru on September 9th – with the venues still to be announced.
Karamjeet Singh, Senior Vice President, Mooz Entertainment, the company that is promoting the tour, said:
“We are living in exciting times where we are able to connect with the world, in a very up close way whenever we want, and MOOZ is translating this viability into music too. Starting up with Korn, we hope to be bringing some very edgy international acts through, for the very aware Indian audiences. Music lovers can look forward to a world quality concert experience, starting with Korn this September”
Korn released their contentious 10th studio album The Path of Totality in December 2011 that saw the band collaborate with numerous dubstep producers including Skrillex, Noisia and Excision. Watch the video for “Get Up” here:
