JÄGERMEISTER, the brand known for decades of involvement with rock and metal bands, unleashes the 2010 SPRING JÄGERMEISTER MUSIC TOUR featuring KORN, 2CENTS, and stand-up comedian BIG JAY OKERSON.
The 16th JÄGERMEISTER MUSIC TOUR kicks off MAY 2nd in MYRTLE BEACH, SC. There are more than 25 dates across the nation in celebration of the upcoming release of KORN’s ninth studio album "KoRn III: Remember Who You Are."
"KORN is not only a GRAMMY-winning band, but one that had been vocal about their love for JÄGERMEISTER since the '90s," said BILL HENDERSON, SVP/Marketing and Advertising for the SIDNEY FRANK IMPORTING COMPANY. "We are excited to partner with them as well as 2CENTS, and BIG JAY OAKERSON to create what will undoubtedly be JÄGERMEISTER’s biggest Music Tour to date."
KORN frontman JONATHAN DAVIS said, "Back in the day JÄGERMEISTER was one of the first brands to back KORN. Those early tours were some of the best times of our lives. Now we are looking to bring that vibe back in a big way."
This tour is something very different for KORN, since they will be playing ballrooms and clubs in some of the most intimate settings in a very long time. This tour acts as a great way to recapture the old-school KORN style reminiscent in their first two albums and the upcoming KoRn III. DAVIS explains, "We wanted to play new songs for the diehard fans in a setting that fits the music, so we told the promoters to take out the seats!"
A dozen tour dates have been announced so far, including MAY 2nd in MYRTLE BEACH, SC; MAY 3rd in CHARLOTTE; MAY 6th in CLIFTON PARK, NY; MAY 7th in HAMPTON BEACH, NH; MAY 8th in LEWISTON, ME; MAY 10th in NEW YORK; MAY 12th in SCRANTON, PA; MAY 15th in MILWAUKEE; MAY 29th in SAN ANTONIO; MAY 30th in HOUSTON; JUNE 1st in LAREDO, TX; and JUNE 2nd in LUBBOCK, TX.
