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 experience was Lollapalooza '97. I was 14 and it was my first concert ever. The band rolled out on low rider bikes to Porno Creep and JD had on his green sequins ADIDAS jumpsuit. It was epic. Friday (11/4 @ Roseland) was actually my 25th KoRn show. They've only gotten better over time!

    I wasnt allowed to listen to Korn and would hide it from my friends and family when I was in middle school. When I got older I still pretended to be someone I wasnt, all prim and proper. I was screaming inside... then one day I broke free and devoted my life to the music industry. I am now a booking agent and bring up and coming bands to san antonio. I have NEVER been to a Korn concert. Sooooo this Friday 11.18.2011 will be my very FIRST time to see Korn! I have met many famous bands and think nothing of it because they are just friends and mentors. but Korn is different, they were the beggining to my self release. My life is live music, Im addicted to it and will do everything I can to keep it alive. With that being said... I cant imagine how its going to feel for me on Friday, for my first show!

    I remember my first Korn concert. It was in Selma, TX (just outside of San Antonio) at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. It was November 2002, although I can't remember the date. Disturbed had opened for them, and after they left, I felt the anticipation flow through my body, as I knew Korn was next. Once they came on, I lost it. Oh, boy, did I lose it. I remember it to this day, in fact.

    The show coming up today in San Antonio (the one Alix mentioned) will be my wife's first Korn concert, and I get to meet them as a part of VIP experience! These are the guys who got me into playing guitar, and the reason I stuck with music after high school. I cannot tell you how excited I am to meet them in just a few hours!

    Denver Mayhem 2010! Ray had an insane drum solo in the middle of 'Somebody, Someone'. It was insane. I remember the set had giant oil rigs moving back and forth, and huge refinery towers. It was an insanely good set also, not to mention that Somebody is my favorite song, but they played Oildale, Coming Undone with We Will Rock You, Clown and Did My Time. While it sucked that Jonathan didn't acknowledge the crowd, hearing his powerful voice was unbelievable. That was my only Korn show, but it was amazing and I will never forget meeting Korn and having them sign my special edition of Korn 3.

    My first Korn concert was when Korn came to Croatia and I was so happy when I was going to that concert.
    It was in Summer of 2007. There was a lot of people in Zagreb and so it was a nice concert. And I wish Korn would like to come to Croatia one more time.

    i have liked koRn for a couple of years but never got around to seeing them live as other things popped up as they do when you try to plan things so i didnt let anything pop up this time so i saw them in the UK for my first time when they played in manchester on 28th of march 2012 and they was AWESOME live i loved every second of it, i wasnt expecting them to be as good live as what they was to be honest, id even go as far as saying they are better than stone sour live and thats my second fave band after slipknot, cant wait to see koRn again, they put on a really good show, just downloaded the audio recording for that show :D, cant wait for their next UK tour (be awhile yet i know but still)

    The first time I saw Korn live was on the 9th September 2012, here in Bangalore, India, The Path of the Totality tour. My nephew and I were the first to reach the venue. Its about an hour ride on a bike from our my place. We reached around 2pm, gates open at 5pm. So we waited for 3 hrs, we didn't complain at all :). We were the first to enter when the gates open LOL, we couldn't afford the Premium tickets, so we were in the General section, a bit far from the stage. So Korn came out exactly at 8pm, after about 5songs, they let us all go to the premium section, Awesome, it wasn't so crowded anyways,which was perfect for me. At first I thought I'd just stand there and watch them do their thing, didn't wanna miss anything happening on the stage. But well, when you feel the music, can't stand anymore, gotta bang head, its crucial :P. It rained, we were soaked, which makes headbanging more awesome. The show was exactly for 1 and a half hr. My neck hurts for the next 1 week, got fever as well. I'm korned hahaha. It was all so worth it, I'd do it all over again. I still got the korn fever till now. Whenever I blink I still see them on the stage....Damn I love Korn
