The old pals join forces and get Back 2 Basics...

LIMP BIZKIT and KORN are taking it back to the old days on a new North American tour.

The Back 2 Basics tour of the US will reunite the long-time touring partners for the first time since 1999 on a scaled-down tour of clubs and theatres.

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis told MTV about the days when an unknown Bizkit used to be his support band: “Back in the day we always had them warm up because we loved them so much. We got along great and got in trouble together. It’s great ‘cause we’re all friends.”

Enthusing about the tour, he said: “These small halls are fun. It juts reminds me of when we were coming up and we enjoyed this tight, cramped little space. It was just hot and you would want to die. I just love that vibe.”

The Back 2 Basics tour will herald Korn’s new album, ‘Take A Look In The Mirror’, due out on November 24. The first single will be called ‘Right Now’.

Although venues are yet to be confirmed, the tour will call at the following cities:

Las Vegas (November 10)

Salt Lake City (14)

Denver (15)

Minneapolis (17)
