Korn Present Korn Live: The Encounter July 11th
Korn will perform for an hour and twenty minutes inside the mysterious crop circle that was recently revealed in the final installment of a viral web campaign. The concert will make its North American broadcast premiere on HDNet on Sunday, July 11 at 8 PM ET and will have a worldwide online premiere on Monday, July 12 via MySpace in countries all over the world.
The band worked closely with longtime UK-based circle makers, circlemakers.org, on the shadowy design which features a series of intricate circles, one of which includes the iconic Korn logo, and stretches over 920 feet long and 350 feet wide. The concert event, which is a first for a rock band, takes inspiration from the eerie atmosphere of Pink Floyd’s legendary “Live at Pompei.”
Over the last month, web watchers were exposed to mysterious, unexplainable footage shot from a wheat field near Korn ‘s native Bakersfield, California. The viral series lead many to wonder what was going on and what exactly Korn had in store for their loyal fans. Well, the time has come to find out what is really going on with these ominous “signs.” The band will perform several songs from Korn III – Remember Who You Are, their new album which is due out July 13. Korn will also dip into their beloved catalog and play numerous classics and fan favorites, which certainly ups the event’s “must see” status.
Beginning this weekend, July 10, Korn will head back on the road as one of the co-headliners for the third annual Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band performed last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s outdoor stage, playing two new songs from Korn III as well as four fan favorites.
