Korn, Rob Zombie, and In This Moment brought the ‘Return of the Dreads’ tour to the Shoreline Amphitheatre recently, and proved just why it has been one of the most anticipated metal tours of the Summer.


Nu-Metal pioneers and headliners Korn delivered a set of some of there most well known songs, including “Here to Stay,” “Coming Undone,” “Got the Live,” and “Freak on a Leash.” They also played a new song entitled “Rotting In Vain.” While musicianship is not part of Korn’s DNA, the band drew the Shoreline crowd into their music for the entire set.

Rob Zombie hit the stage with hits “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown,” and never looked back. Along with guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, and drummer Ginger Fish, the band played songs of of Zombie’s latest release, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser,” as well as White Zombie classics, “More Human Than Human”, “Thunder Kiss ’65.”

Rob still looks and sounds great, and as he closed his set with a cover a “We’re an American Band,” and “Dragula,” the crowd was definitely left wanting a full headlining set, hopefully which will come later this year.

Kicking things off on the evening was In This Moment. Fronted by vocalist Maria Bank along with her two dancers, the band put on a highly energized set with plenty of costume changes and production while getting the crowd on it’s feet early with songs such as “Black Widow,” “Blood,” and “Burn.” It was a perfect way to start the evening, but was also only just a taste of what was to come.
