Your First Korn Concert Experience!

Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 10:13 AM

My first Korn concert should have been during their Life is Peachy tour but Munky had gotten sick so they cancelled. I got my chance (thanks to my cousin Zinnia) to see them a year later in Houston during their Follow the Leader tour. It was an amazing show! Hed-Pe and Orgy were the opening bands. Jay and Paige autographed my red Korn t-shirt which years later my now ex-wife accidently sent to the Salvation Army ***mental picture of a somalian kid wearing it***. They played a good setlist such as Kill You, My Gift to You, Dead Bodies Everywhere, and the regular touring tracks they play. I remember first getting there I was getting my floor bracelet and when walking towards the floor entrance some pothead approached me asking if I wanna sell my ticket? Even after being marked and scanned! Go figure I guess...I said no and he just stood there looking into oblivion. Overall the concert experience is one I still haven't forgotten and will never! For that whole year I was the most hated person in my small town because I had gone to the concert. Would have been better to receive a leaving or welcome back party like Longfellow Deeds but not in my small U.S./Mexican Border town. Its not really difficult to sort out those who know English or Spanish here. The English Kids would ask "Hey how was the Korn Concert?" while the Hispanic kids would ask, "how wass el concerto de Elote (spanish for Corn)?" LOL :D. Awwwww....a good times they were! :D Do you remember your first time? :D

    My first Korn show was April 30th, 1995. I had been a fan since my friend John had gotten me into them right after self titled came out. The show was part of the Danzig Tour, with Korn playing first, then Manson and then Danzig. That show is what got me into music. I've seen 1536 live shows in my life thus far, 47 Korn shows with my 48th coming this Sept. 27th. My first VIp as well. I've met all the other band members in the past but never JD. I've been wanting to meet him for near 20 years now. Sept. 27th will truly be a bucket list moment for me.

    Here is the setlist for my first korn show way back when.

    1. Blind
    2. Ball Tongue(With Lodi Dodi, and It takes two)
    3. Divine
    4. Clown
    5. Lowrider
    6. Shoots and Ladders
    7. Lies
    8. Faget

    By the way it was fucking amazing reading all of your stories and experiences! True Korn fans man!

    My first Korn concert was Big Day Out 1999, in Melbourne. It was also my first concert in general. I was 12 at the time, my older sister took me to see them and no other show has matched the feeling I had. I could write 2,000 words on how awesome and surreal it was, but I see there's no need. You all know how much Korn rule.

    Marilyn Manson and Hole headlined. They were okay, except when Manson talked shit about Korn. I will not stand for disrespect towards my heroes. Courtney Love kinda scared me.
