Korn (supported by Incubus & The Urge) 26th January 1997 – Civic Hall, Wolverhampton

There was a second chance to see Korn around the same time, when they toured with funk rock band The Urge, and up-and-coming soul rock band Incubus. Both these bands were fairly average live as I recall. Korn, however, were again fantastic. They played all their best songs, plus the pick of material from their (not quite so good) second album, Life is Peachy, including “Good God” and “Kill You”. 

The sequined tracksuit had already started to take a life of its own and through the five musicians were on their way to stardom, the gig retained enough intimacy for it to linger in the memory. I also came away with a ridiculously large poster with low-resolution print (well, what do you expect for a couple of quid off a street seller?)

8.5 out of 10
