The Family Values Tour was created by the band Korn in 1998 to be an annual rock and hip hop tour. It was announced in 2013 that the tour would come back as a one day music festival instead of the traditional tour.

The tour began in 1998 and would take the year off in 2000, due to heavy competition from other tours, such as the Anger Management Tour and the Summer Sanitarium Tour. After a four year hiatus, the Family Values returned in 2006 with Korn and Deftones as the headliners. 2006 featured a second stage for the first time in the festival's history. James "Munky" Shaffer has confirmed (in an interview) that a DVD and CD documenting 2007's Family Values Tour has been recorded.

History[edit]

Family Values Tour 1998[edit]

Korn, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Incubus (replaced Ice Cube on October 25, 1998 for four remaining dates), Orgy, and Rammstein.

In one of the more infamous moments, Rammstein's vocalist, Till Lindemann engaged in simulated anal sex with the keyboardist, Christian Lorenz using a liquid squirting dildo, during their performance of "Bück dich" in Worcester, Massachusetts. They were subsequently arrested and spent the night in jail. They were also arrested on Halloween, when they came out on stage naked.

Ice Cube replacement[edit]

On September 25, 1998 due to the beginning of shooting the movie Next Friday, Ice Cube was replaced by alternative band Incubus for remaining four dates. The band is featured on the Family Values Tour '98 CD release with song "New Skin", and can be also seen during performance of "All in the Family" on DVD release.

Feud with Rob Zombie[edit]

Initially, Rob Zombie was to be one of the artists participating on the tour, but due to the high production costs each Rob Zombie concert would cost $125,000 in bandfees and show production alone. Therefore, Rob Zombie was replaced by German industrial metal act, Rammstein. However, explanation was somewhat confusing. The Firm, Korn's management, said Zombie continually expressed dissatisfaction over not wanting to work with a hip-hop act on the bill, and was supposedly lectured by Rob Zombie's management that "rock kids don't like hip-hop." Rob Zombie's manager, Andy Gould, said those comments were false. He explained that Zombie has never even spoken to Korn, so he could not have made those comments.[1] Although the statement released by Korn's management resulted in anger, Rob Zombie shared no bad blood with the bands participating in Family Values Tour. Next year, in 1999, both Rob Zombie and Korn got on good terms again, and launched together the highly successful "Rock is Dead" tour.

Controversies[edit]

In 2006 a violent fight allegedly broke out in the mosh pit at the Family Values Tour in Atlanta, Georgia while Deftones were performing, resulting in the death of Andy Richardson, age 30, on August 1, 2006. Lawyers representing Mr. Richardson's family said they may pursue civil actions against Korn and the show's promoters.

Mr. Richardson's mother, Gloria Richardson, said "It's not right that someone could go to a concert for a good time and wind up dead ...There needs to be more security or they need to not have these concerts at all…", in a statement to Fox News Service made on August 1, 2006. One week later, a 24-year-old Michael Scott Axley was arrested and charged with Richardson's murder. Witnesses claim Axley punched Richardson, causing his head to hit the concrete floor, an injury that ultimately proved to be fatal.
