Korn Rock New + Old ‘Skool’ Fans in New York City
While it's been 21 years since Korn released their self-titled debut album, the band is still celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the disc on its current tour. The sold-out show at New York City’s intimate Irving Plaza got sweaty very quickly as hundreds of diehard Korn fans yelled “Are You Ready?” at the top of their lungs.
Jonathan Davis and the rest of the band unleashed their first album in its entirety track by track. From belting out “Ball Tongue” to breaking out the bagpipes for “Shoots and Ladders” to an intense performance of “Daddy,” Korn delivered the old-school tracks as fans were having a throwback moment with each song and passionately sang along. Irving Plaza felt like a sauna, and by the end of the night everyone was drenched in sweat.
Despite being sweaty and soar, fans still went nuts during the encore, which included “Falling Away From Me” and “Here to Stay,” just to name a couple. Even though Korn didn’t play “Got the Life," the band did end the highly energetic set with another fan favorite, “Freak on a Leash.”
Suicide Silence took the stage beforehand for one hell of a set. They kicked off their performance with the notable “You Only Live Once.” Frontman Eddie Hermida spewed out “Wake Up” and “No Pity for a Coward.”
Islander opened up the show with a lively set, as frontman Mikey Carvajal serenaded fans face to face throughout their performance. At the end of the set, Carvajal got even closer up as he climbed up to the balcony and with encouragement from the crowed he made a lengthy leap into the arms of fans.
