Adds says Jonathan Davis of Korn, ”Three years ago, we reunited with our brother Head on stage at Carolina Rebellion. Since then, we made a new album and toured the world together. And now we’re back to perform our first album in its entirety. Rebellion is going to be a really special show for us.”
“Playing with a band like The Circle (which features Jason Bonham, Michael Anthony and Vic Johnson), we’ve got a set list made in Rock N’ Roll Heaven and a band from Rock N’ Roll Hell,” says Sammy Hagar. “The only missing link is tens of thousands of rocking fans … HELLO CAROLINA!”
