Korn concert chronology

The Escape from the Studio Tour was a 2009 concert tour by metal band Korn. It included 61 confirmed dates (one being an offset show in Malaysia) and spanned across the United States to Europe. It was the second tour to feature Ray Luzier. The venues were mostly clubs and festivals. Other bands that played at some shows included Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Limp Bizkit, Drowning Pool, Hurt, Burn Halo, and Static-X.

Unlike the previous See You On The Other Side Tour and The Bitch We Have a Problem Tour, the backing band no longer wore masks and black tuxedos and it only consisted of two backing members: Shane Gibson (rhythm guitar) and Zac Baird (piano).

To promote the tour, Korn changed their website and streamed their concerts live. Only the premium members on the website will be able to view the live streams. Also they recorded their Rock Am Ring Performance for the tour to be aired live on television on MTV: Germany, and the shows in Prague and Vienna were aired live as pay-per-view events on television.

On March 21, 2009, Korn also took a short detour to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to perform at the Sunburst Music Festival alongside N.E.R.D., Naturally 7, Estranged and Nidji, among others.[1]

The tour had its final show on October 30, 2009, in Costa Mesa, California, at the Orange County Fair and Expo Center.


The setlist has been the most diverse setlist Korn has played on a tour, due to the band switching out songs and bringing in new ones for almost every show. The band also brought back fan favorites such as "Chi", which hasn't been played since 1999; "Good God", and "Helmet in the Bush", both songs seen their last performance in 2002; "Divine", "Thoughtless", and "Ball Tongue", all of which haven't been played since 2004; and "Y'All Want a Single" and "Another Brick in the Wall", which were last played in 2005.
