Family Values Tour 2007 Bitch We Have a Problem Tour Escape From the Studio Tour

Bitch We Have a Problem Tour was a concert tour in support of Korn's eighth studio album. The tour featured 25 shows (plus 1 offset show) in North America and 33 shows in Europe for a combined total of 58 shows.

Hellyeah (until October 23), Droid, Five Finger Death Punch, and Flyleaf were the support acts for the North American leg of the tour. The tour began on September 27, 2007 in Reno, Nevada and the first leg of the tour was completed on October 27, 2007 in Seattle, Washington.

The support acts for the Australian part of the tour were Biohazard, Chimaira, Throwdown, and Bloodsimple.[1]

Setlist[edit]

The setlist for this tour changed extensively between legs, but was otherwise reasonably stable. The band played songs from across their back catalogue as well as new ones from their untitled album. Several of the band's biggest hits, including "Got the Life", were often omitted in favour of more obscure tracks. Interestingly, this is the only tour in which songs from the untitled album were played live. Although, the song "Hold On was performed live once in 2011.

The Portland, Oregon show was canceled due to 'logistical and production issues beyond the band's control'.[4]

Flyleaf and Swedish band Deathstars will join Korn as support acts on the second leg of the tour. On September 26, 2007, Deathstar's website released the dates for the second leg of the tour.[5]

Munky's departure from the European Tour[edit]

On January 16, 2008 it was announced, via Korn.com, that James "Munky" Shaffer would be leaving the European tour 'for both personal and family reasons'.[6] Shane Gibson later posted on Kornspace.com that Munky's father has become ill and he went home to be with his family.[7] Munky, however has returned for Milan concert on February 23 and has continued to tour since.
