Korn and Disturbed, two of rock's biggest acts, are teaming up to co-headline this year's ‘Monster Energy Music As A Weapon V Tour’. With the first half of dates on sale now and off to a scorching start, the highly successful Monster Energy’s MAAW V Tour has added even more dates and new markets: a second leg from March 8 through March 30 that will include stops including Scotiabank Place in Ottawa. The bands have decided that the first 1,000 tickets from each show will be sold at a $5 discount during the on-sale weekend to reward early ticket-buying fans.
On Aug. 31, 2010, Disturbed released their fifth studio album Asylum, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart. Asylum is the band's fourth consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1, a feat achieved by only two other rock groups in history: Metallica and the Dave Matthews Band. An international hit with Top 10 chart bows across the globe, Asylum has earned critical praise from USA Today, which called it "a tight, sharp-riffed ride...the combo of aggressive roar and guitar grace recalls Metallica's finest moments," and the New York Daily News, which declared "On Asylum, Disturbed finely weigh power and delicacy, catchiness and punch. The subtle variety of the band's tunesmanship, and the buoyancy of their rhythms make this hard group so easy to love."
Over the last 16 years, Korn have established themselves as one of the biggest bands in the history of hard rock and metal, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide. Their latest album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, released on Roadrunner Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts this year, with Metal Hammer proclaiming that fans would be "wiping away tears of recognition and delight when they blast it for the first, second, and 38th time."
