The 2006 Family Values Tour was a summer concert tour headlined by Korn. The tour originally started in 1998.


Although originally conceived as an annual tour, the Family Values Tour returned in 2006 after a five-year hiatus.

The 2006 tour featured a total of ten bands across two separate stages, with Californian rockers Droid appearing on a number of shows. Korn, the creators of the tour, headlined the 2006 show with the Deftones as co-headliners.

On July 30, at the tour's stop in Atlanta, a fan was severely beaten over a baseball cap by another concert-goer during the Deftones' set. The victim, 30-year-old local man Andy Richardson, later died as a result of his injuries in the Grady Memorial Hospital.

The defendant, 25-year-old Michael Scott Axley, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault and was sentenced to 10 years incarceration and 10 years probation.[1] "All the bands on the Family Values Tour offer their sincerest condolences and prayers to the family of 30-year-old Andy Richardson", read an official statement from Korn.[2]

KoRn shot the video for their third "See You on the Other Side" single, "Politics" in East Troy, Wisconsin, putting handheld cameras in the hands of ten lucky members of its fanclub and local area fans who were given all-access passes to shoot the performance and any behind-the-scenes footage that they chose, along with the traditional camera shoot.

More than 400,000 wildly enthusiastic fans turned out for the Family Values Tour for the 30-show city trek.

Two shows during the tour were canceled. One in Wantagh, New York was forced to cancel due to terrible weather that hit the area, flooding the entire floor of the Jones Beach Theater. The second cancelled show was in Virginia Beach, Virginia for undisclosed reasons.

The tour also featured many surprises for fans with special on-stage appearances from Slipknot bassist Paul Gray & Filter frontman Richard Patrick performing "Hey Man, Nice Shot", as well as a U2 cover of "Pride (In the Name of Love)", with Flyleaf which appeared on the Family Values 2006 CD, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno performing "Wicked" and Slipknot/Stone Sour lead singer Corey Taylor joining KoRn on stage for a rendition of "Freak on a Leash".

KoRn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu was also forced to jump in for guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer during the band's closing song, "Blind" in Holmdel, New Jersey after he was reportedly drunk and had to leave the stage.
