Korn and Staind at iThink Financial Amphitheatre
Korn kicks off its 28-date North American tour on Thursday at iThink Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. It’s been a while since fans have been able to catch the nu-metal pioneers on stage, and in the meantime, they have been placated only by the band’s last studio album, The Nothing
, which dropped in late 2019. Frontman Jonathan Davis has set tongues wagging in recent weeks, announcing that the band has finished writing its follow-up. Joining Korn on tour is fellow nu-metal band Staind. 6:30 p.m. Thursday, August 5, at iThink Financial Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansburys Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; livenation.com.
