Korn, Alice in Chains coming to Phoenix on co-headlining tour

Feb 26, 2019, 4:45 PM

PHOENIX – Hey all you freaks on leashes and men in boxes, this one’s for you.

Nu metal pioneers Korn and grunge icons Alice in Chains announced Monday they’re teaming up for a co-headlining North American tour that stops in Phoenix this summer.

The sounds will be heavy at Ak-Chin Pavilion on Aug. 31, when the headliners will be joined by Fever 333 and Underoath.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m.

Led by screamer Jonathan Davis, Korn broke through in the late 1990s with a funky metal sound that produced hits such as “Freak on a Leash” and “Falling Away From Me.”

The Bakersfield, California, group reportedly has been working on its 13th studio album, a follow-up to 2016’s “The Serenity of Suffering.”

Alice in Chains rode the original Seattle grunge wave in the early ‘90s alongside Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, scoring with dark anthems such as “Man in the Box” and “Rooster.”

Original singer Layne Staley died of a drug overdose in 2002, but the band had been largely inactive since 1996.

AIC regrouped in 2006 with new vocalist William DuVall and has since released three albums, including 2018’s “Rainier Fog.”
