Korn, with special guest Staind, rocked in front of two sold-outcrowds. Their unique, emotional lyrics and expressive instrumentation captivatedlisteners and charged the hour-and-a-half-long set.
Mindless SelfIndulgence opened, followed by Staind. Staind’s debut CD,”Dysfunction,” is marked with many great songs, such as the emotional”Mudshovel.” They did their album justice with a live performance thatdelivered an excess of power and energy.
Once Staind left to a roar ofapplause, the Sick and Twisted Animation show began and entertained viewersanticipating Korn’s appearance. Finally, the lights dimmed and all eyes turned tothe stage as the familiar intro of “Falling Away From Me” was heard.

The applause and screams were deafening.
Korn played all their hits,including “Make Me Bad,” “Freak on a Leash,””A.D.I.D.A.S.” and “Blind.” After a short break when Staindplayed one of Korn’s songs, lead singer Jonathan Davis reappeared in a kilt toplay bagpipes while being raised on a column.
Overall, it was a greatshow, with incredible special effects and, of course, intense music.
