Just before heading out on their European tour, SoCal’s own System of a Down announced a new LA show with Korn, Faith No More, Helmet and Russian Circles at Banc Of California Stadium May 22, according to the PRP. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 7, at 10 a.m. PST, and can be purchased here. The LA show is System of a Down’s only U.S. date listed for the year so far, which is followed by a European tour.
After releasing their 13th studio album last fall, The Nothing, Korn is currently touring with Breaking Benjamin as part of a 18-city U.S. winter tour, before playing Knotfest in Japan. Earlier this year Faith No More announced there would not be any new music in the near future, but fans can still see them live on their European tour after the LA show.
Helmet frontman Page Hamilton recently announced that he will be featured on the new M’lumbo album Fairytale Aliens, which is set to release March 20. The band returns from an Australian tour before playing the LA show and then sets out on a series of European dates. Russian Circles starts their world tour at the end of the month, before coming back stateside for the LA show. All five bands teased the upcoming show on social media late last week, with the same cryptic post.
UPDATE (2/6): Due to overwhelming demand, a second show has been added at Banc of California stadium. It will take place on May 23rd.
