Korn & Rob Zombie dominate Vegas!
Concert review & Photo Gallery exclusively to BREAL.TV
Korn & Rob Zombie have had an touring history. Dating back to 1999 as part of their co-headlining “Rock Is Dead” tour. Seventeen years later, both artists are now in their 4th tour together. Billed as “The Return Of The Living Dreads” tour with In This Moment opening the show. Recently, I attended the Las Vegas stop of the tour. Along with my camera, I give you a peak into their show.
I arrived inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center just as In This Moment opened the show. Singer, Maria Brink captivated the stage, along with 2 burlesque-like dancers brought the bands melodic gothic metal vibe to life. Performing songs including, “Sick Like Me”, “Sex Metal Barbie”, & “Whore” – where Brink wears a dunce-like hat displaying the word, “Whore”. A great start for what was about to be an amazing night of performances.
Rob Zombie was next to go on stage. The Singer/Movie Director took the stage with his band, featuring John 5. Zombie’s stage filled with zombies, lights, & and 10-foot tall devil. Zombie, currently on tour supporting his latest album, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser” brought it to the stage, showcasing both solo & White Zombie classics. Stand out songs including, “Dragula”, “Thunder Kiss 65”, & “Living Dead Girl” we’re definite stand outs in the 1 hour set.
Korn was the headlining band for tonight, and they made sure why they were the closing band. Their 60+ minute in your face show, filled with melodic to death metal vocal stylings of Jonathan Davis taking over the stage as the heavy metal juggernauts dominated through their extensive catalog with fan-favorite classics, including “Right Now”, “Here To Stay”, and “Blind”. In addition, the band played new song, “Rotting In Vain” showing the 20+ years metal vets still have a lot to say in this 2016 as they did in their 1994 debut.
Bassist, Fieldy stormed the stage with his ultra-low end notes. Guitarists, Head & Munky brought the sheer heaviness from their 7-string guitars. Drummer, Ray Luzier annihilated the drum kit, making the band sound heavier than ever. Touring keyboardist, Zac Baird keeps the vibe at it most intense, filling with notes that compliments their trademark sound. The band closes the night out with fan favorite, “Freak On A Leash”. Korn releases their 12th album, “The Serenity Of Suffering” on October 21st, 2016.
