American nu metal band Korn kicks off their 2022 tour in Springfield in March.

In correspondence with the release of their 14th studio album, “Requiem”, Korn is touring 19 US cities from March to April.

The band is back at the JQH Arena on Friday March 4 at 6:30 p.m. with the opening act Chevelle, an American rock band, and Code Orange, an American punk band. The last time Korn performed in Springfield was in February 2020.

Korn, formed in 1993, is considered a pioneer of nu metal, a subgenre of metal that combines other genres of music, including hip hop, grunge, alternative rock and funk, according to MasterClass. Nu metal often includes syncopation, rhythms that don’t line up with individual bar downbeats, direct lyrics, mixed vocals, and turntables.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased through Missouri State Tix.
