Aussies could have reason to rejoice, as the Korn Australia Tour 2017 looks forthcoming.
It has been two years since the nu-metal lords visited the land Down Under during the Soundwave Festival. As it turns out, the band had intended to return to Australia sooner after 2014. However, they ran into problems involving yet another Aussie festival.
Apparently, the setback was reportedly due to disappointments from the business aspect of the whole deal, hence the delay in coming back to perform in front of their Australian fans. They are now determined to put together a Korn Australia Tour 2017 to guarantee a great show for everyone. Indeed, the optimism of the band for it would be enough reason for their fans to be hopeful early on.
“We’re working on it right now, we’re trying to figure out how we can get down there… next year some time. We don’t wanna do it unless we have the right production and it’s done right, you know? We don’t wanna come and not put on a good show for the fans, so we’re gonna make sure that it’s done right and we have the right production and the right team and the right business relationship to make it happen,” Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer told Music Feeds.
The sentiment of Munky towards Australia would also imply the Korn Australia Tour 2017 is going to happen. His fellow bandmates feel the same way. Munky revealed going Down Under is like being on vacation, hence his excitement for the prospect of their headlining tour.

Year 2017 is shaping up to be a big year for foreign musical acts in Australia. The recent announcement of the Justin Bieber Purpose Tour Australia has Beliebers in a frenzy already. Sources suggested the Canadian pop star is on the lookout for a private home while Down Under. Then again, could high visa fees put a stop to plans for the Korn Australia Tour 2017?
