Family Values Tour '98 is the first live album, which was released on March 30, 1999 through Immortal and Epic Records. It was released on the same day as the DVD version. The live album was produced by Josh Abraham and Jeff Kwatinetz.
Artists who participated in 1998 Family Values Tour were the following bands and musicians:
- Ice Cube
- Incubus (replaced Ice Cube on October 25, 1998 for five remaining dates)
- Limp Bizkit
The tour was preceded by whirlwind political campaign-style tour named "Korn Kampaign" (from August 17, 1998 in Los Angeles through September 1 in Phoenix, Arizona) to promote the release of their album Follow the Leader. It took the group all over North America to spread the news of their "Family Values" platform to hordes of fans at special "fan conferences" that were organized at every stop along the tour route. Korn chartered a jet, which took them to record stores in such cities as Riverside, CA, Mt. View, CA, Sacramento, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Toronto, Atlanta, and Dallas. The band talked to fans at every stop, answered questions during the special "fan conferences" and signed autographs. Jim Rose hosted the entire "Korn Kampaign" tour. Celebrities at various stops included Ice Cube and Todd McFarlane.
The 1998 edition of Family Values Tour was highly successful, the live compilation debuted at #7 at Billboard 200 chart selling 121,000 copies in its first week, and achieving gold record status by RIAA.
Korn helped to promote then-unknown acts. The results were very promising. Rammstein's album Sehnsucht achieved platinum certification in the United States, also Orgy's debut album Candyass achieved similar success. Limp Bizkit enjoyed even greater success which helped them establish themselves as one of the leading acts of the nu metal wave at that time, and enjoyed enormous commercial success.
