It’s been a struggle for artists to convey their art to fans in the midst of a concert moratorium due to the pandemic. Yet with almost 30 years as a band under their belt, Korn knows how to give the fans what they want through the innovation and creativity they’ve built their brand on. With their latest offering, “Korn: Monumental,” the band brought their signature stage presence to fans all over the world via livestream from a visually stunning overlook in Los Angeles, California. While many live streams have focused on giving audiences an intimate experience, Korn managed to amplify the feel of their electrifying live performance to a new level of massive grandiosity. Making expert use of lighting and aerial shots, the band can be seen from all angles being bathed in the blue and white light as stunning visuals are projected off the enormous screens installed as part “Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience.”
Korn will host an immersive global livestream event, next weekend! Scheduled for Saturday, April 24th at 1:00PM PDT / 4:00PM EDT / 9:00PM BST / 10:00PM CEST, the ticketed immersive concert experience will broadcast worldwide from the set of the breath-taking Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience. Produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, the performance promises to be an unforgettable set from the iconic band, highlighted by rare and sought-after deep cuts and classics from their legendary catalog. Since KORN’s latest critically acclaimed album, The Nothing (Roadrunner Records), never received a proper tour due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, KORN: MONUMENTAL will mark the live debut of select tracks from the new record for fans around the globe.
