Korn Come Uncaged at New York City Show With Asking Alexandria + Love and Death
Korn invaded New York’s Roseland Ballroom on Friday night (Sept. 27) with a backdrop of real-live fans in cages as the band members themselves took over the venue like a pack of uncaged lions, complete with dreaded manes. Along for the wild ride were Asking Alexandria and Love and Death.
Seeing Korn live is quite an event as it is, but seeing them with cages full of fans behind them definitely adds to the overall experience. With a backdrop looking like something out of ‘Mad Max,’ Korn took the stage and launched into a rousing rendition of ‘Blind.’ Along with favorites like ‘Falling Away From Me,’ ‘Coming Undone’ and ‘Here to Stay,’ the band performed the new songs ‘Love & Meth,’ ‘Never Never’ and ‘Prey for Me’ off their upcoming album ‘The Paradigm Shift.’
With Brian ‘Head’ Welch back in the band, Korn seem whole again. Seeing the four dread-locked founding members at the front of the stage together makes you wonder how they ever played without Head for so many years. Frontman Jonathan Davis looked as energetic as ever, while Fieldy and Munky were in great spirits. It was obvious the band members were enjoying one another’s company onstage.
For an encore, Korn busted out ‘Get Up!’ along with their classic hits ‘Got the Life’ and ‘Freak on a Leash,’ leaving the NYC crowd buzzing at the end of the show.
Prior to Korn’s set, UK metalcore heroes Asking Alexandria took the stage for an adrenaline-fueled set. The band is out in support of their latest album ‘From Death to Destiny.’ And opening the night was Love and Death, who are fronted by Korn’s very own Brian ‘Head’ Welch.’
