Korn Welcome Back Guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch for Two 2013 Shows


Nu-metal pioneers Korn have announced that they’ll be playing two shows with former guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, who will be performing his first full sets with the band since 2004.

German rock festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park will both see Head back in Korn during its 2013 dates. The 2013 festivals will both be held on June 7 – 9 and will feature headline acts such as Stone Sour, Bad Religion, Five Finger Death Punch, Bullet for My Valentine + more. The Rock am Ring festival will be held at the Nurburgring racetrack in the west of Germany, while Rock im Park is around the Frankenstadion in Nuremberg in the south of Germany.

Korn announced that they will be playing “two special Korn shows featuring special guest and original member Brian ‘Head’ Welch performing full concerts with the group for the first time since 2004.” Welch is currently fronting a new project called Love and Death. Listen to their song ‘The Abandoning’ here.

Welch recently joined the Korn onstage for the first time since his departure to play ‘Blind‘ with Korn at the 2012 Carolina Rebellion festival. Soon after, Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer told The Pulse of Radio that he would be open to Welch one day rejoining the band. “It’s just something that has to be super well-planned and it has to come naturally,” says Munky. “And our experience with him on Saturday has all started from a positive place, and it wasn’t forced and it was just natural. So I think if everything optimistically runs like that, that’s all I can hope for. I’m really happy just to reconnect with my old friend.”
