Based on audience response and ticket sales of this past fall’s Family Values Tour, promoters have announced plans to bring the festival back for a second go around next year.
According to spokespeople for Korn, who helped organize and headlined the hard rock fest — which also included sets from Rammstein, Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit and Orgy — the Family Values Tour played to more than 243,000 fans in its 27 dates and raked in some $6.4 million in gross sales.
While it’s still too early to know whether any of the artists from the inaugural line-up will return for a subsequent outing, Korn has said that it will hit the road in February 1999 with Rob Zombie, who was originally supposed to be a part of this year’s festival (see “Rob Zombie And Korn Make Amends, Will Tour Together In 1999″ ).
The Korn/Zombie road show is expected to launch on February 26 and continue through April 11, and Videodrone has been tapped to open the initial
set of shows.
