KoRn Live NYC Roseland Ballroom 11/4/2011

I got the chance to see KoRn (for the second time in my life) LIVE this past Friday night in NYC at Roseland Ballroom. The line to see the show wrapped around the block! The place was PACKED! The 3 opening Dubstep/Rap artists had a lot going against them with this New York crowd. All 3 opening acts got booed ! I kinda felt bad for them.The dubstep music that was played by these artists for what it is, is good! Well, not the first act. They were horrible! I can't even remember their name. Once KoRn came on the place went fucking insane! KoRn opened with "Predictable" . JD looked like he did way back in the day when KoRn first came out in the early 90's. I have to say he's lost a lot of weight! He even went shirtless for the remaining old-schools songs.When KoRn started to play the new songs from P.O.T. the crowd was mixed. Some loved it and some started to chant "Bullshit".Once the band went threw 4 new songs they began to play the fan favorites which was kicked of by "Here To Stay". "Another brick In The Wall "was played as well. After Another Brick In The Wall the band started their encore after a few minutes break. They, began with "Shoots and Ladders" and ended with "Blind". All in all the show for me at least was the best show I've been to yet. I loved the fact they played old songs they haven't ever played live or haven't played live in some time . I enjoyed the new songs as well. And the fan favorites were way better this time than the last time i saw them. JD did tell the crowed to opening up their minds to new music. I guess it was in response to the boos the openers got and that KoRn got for some of the new songs. I can't wait to see them again!

    Yeah, I was shocked to hear the fans boo and chant "Bullshit" at KoRn. I enjoyed the little treat KoRn gave us with playing the new songs. They are pretty heavy live! Very emotional on Jon's end. He was really getting into them. I'm happy they played "Proud" as well. That's one of my favorite B-Sides from them. Jon and Munky were loosing their places in "Got The Life" but did cover it up a little with head banging. They cut a few parts out of some of the fan favorites. you know, the new parts they've added to make the song's more interesting to listen to and play live? I guess KoRn started to feel the pressure from the crowed. I saw people leaving with this disgusted look on their faces. NYC has always been a tough crowed even if you are KoRn.

    Sounds like you had fun! I don't even remember much of the 90's thats when I saw Korn for the 2nd time and Im somewhere around 40+ shows right now...I can only imagine how you felt as a fan.
    Yes. Korn fans have to have an open mind to music because Korn had to earn their stripes when they first began and their sound was new to the metal scene. Now we can't live without them!
    I remember seeing bands like Chevelle and Breaking Benjamin open up for Korn in their infant stages of their careers.
    I'm from NYC and I live in California now for the last 4 years and I know the crowd is hard to please but I've never seen the crowd react like that to new music!
