It’s been rumored for months that there would be a Korn tour with Head, and it looks like those rumors are true. See the dates and details of the Korn re-union with Brian “Head” Welch.
It started months ago when both sides were commenting that they would be open to a re-union. Head left the band many years ago due to his personal drug and alcohol problems, and being in Korn wasn’t helping that. Since then he’s become clean and sober, and has found god. It seems that Korn has grown up a bit as well. Many members are now married or have kids, and the partying/drug days seem to be behind them. So if both sides are in a positive place, why not get the band back together?!
Many news sources and writers seem to be rolling in agony over the news, but I for one am pretty stoked. Being a fan since the early years, I’m glad to see Korn still selling out shows and will continue to do so with another original member, Brian “Head” Welch.
