  • MONSTER ENERGY MUSIC AS A WEAPON V TOUR - SECOND LEG

    “MONSTER ENERGY MUSIC AS A WEAPON V TOUR” FEATURING CO-HEADLINERS DISTURBED AND KORN ADD SECOND LEG IN MARCH DUE TO DEMAND- TOUR KICKS OFF JANUARY 14th

    THE TWO ACTS VOW TO BRING BIG SHOW WITH FULL PRODUCTION ON EXTENSIVE FORTY-FIVE CITY TREK OF SECONDARY MARKETS

    EARLY TICKET BUYERS TO RECEIVE $5 DISCOUNT ON THE FIRST 1,000 TICKETS SOLD FROM EACH SHOW

    As announced last month, Disturbed and Korn, two of rock's biggest acts, are teaming up to co-headline this year's “Monster Energy Music As A Weapon V Tour.” With the first half of dates on sale now and off to a scorching start, the highly successful Monster Energy’s MAAW V Tour has added even more dates and new markets: a second leg from March 8th through March 30thrnthat will include stops in Las Vegas, Texas, the West Coast and many more.

    Jonathan Davis of Korn and David Draiman of Disturbed on how the 45 city trek across America came about:

    "We've both just finished great tours. We headlined Mayhem and Disturbed headlined Uproar. The Disturbed guys came out to see us play in Chicago and we got to talking about doing something together. We both agreed that as cool as those types of tours are, they usually only hit major markets, and we both agreed that a lot of our fans just don't live in those cities- so we thought it would be cool to team up, put a big show together, and hit every great place that those big tours never get to. Besides all that, with us and Disturbed together, doing full shows with full production...all I can say is IT’S ON!" said the excited Korn frontman.

    "We are thrilled to launch the Monster Energy Music As A Weapon V Tour with our good friends from Korn," says Disturbed singer David Draiman. "Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it's going to be our best tour yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve".

    Tickets for the first leg of the tour are on sale now and tickets for select dates on the second leg go on sale this weekend. The bands have decided that the first 1,000 tickets from each show will be sold at a $5 discount during the on-sale weekend to reward early ticket-buying fans.

    "A lot of promoters only offer discounted tickets a day or two before the actual show date. We wanted to do something for the fans that are buying their tickets as soon as they go on sale. To offer a discount upfront made the most sense to us," adds Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan.

    "We're tired of promoters offering discounted tickets to last minute folks in order to sell the seats in the back of the gig. We'd rather give our fans a discount for buying early," said Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer.

    On August 31st, 2010, Disturbed released their fifth studio albumAsylum, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart. Asylum is the band's fourth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1, a feat achieved by only two other rock groups in history: Metallica and the Dave Matthews Band. An international hit with Top 10 chart bows across the globe, Asylum has earned critical praise from USA Today, which called it "a tight, sharp-riffed ride...the combo of aggressive roar and guitar grace recalls Metallica's finest moments," and the New York Daily News, which declared "On Asylum, Disturbed finely weigh power and delicacy, catchiness and punch. The subtle variety of the band's tunesmanship, and the buoyancy of their rhythms make this hard group so easy to love."

    Over the last 16 years, Korn have established themselves as one of the biggest bands in the history of hard rock and metal, selling over 30 million albums worldwide. Their latest album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, released on Roadrunner Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts this year, with Metal Hammer proclaiming that fans would be "wiping away tears of recognition and delight when they blast it for the first, second, and 38thrntime."

Disturbed, my name is Tim Dearlove, i live in pgh pa, i listen to your music everyday, i know you guys had a huge conflict in determining what your singles ... i know you probably already decided what your singles would be... but i think, either "The Warrior" or "Never Again" as a third single... just my opinion. for some reason aside from a few other singles on the record those kind of struck me as the the type that would be huge singles... The Warrior, Danny's chorus riff omg your right david he's like a wizard lol...that and your vocals make it in your face!... never again i think because as you said in an interview was about the halocaust of world war 2 tht would probably open some peoples eyes even more so if it hasn't already.. im really hoping Asylum goes platinum in the US.. i waited so long for indestructible to go platinum in the states.. that was stress full til i finally read the news.. ive been listening to you guys since the sickness.. you guys r incredible.. hope to see you soon in pgh pa!...you never sound the same.. tht is why i fell in love with your music and davids powerful vocals!.. thanks for your time!

So excited to see you come to Tucson at last!
