Two Freaks, One Leash – KORN in concert

Jonathan Davis

We had two photographers in attendance, so we have a double serving of KORN photos for you. Two of our photographers, Mr. Stinkhead and Joshua Hoover, got their faces melted off in the pit at the Fillmore Silver Spring on Tuesday night. It was great seeing the return of Brian “Head” Welch after his extended absence. With the energy and togetherness on the stage no one could tell that Head had been missing from the band for several years. KORN played for almost two hours, and the (all ages) crowd was eating it up. Seriously, there was a seven year old kid in cornrows.

Starting off the show with some old school Korn tracks such as Blind and Ball Tongue got the crowd pumping from the first cymbal taps. From that point on the building was a seething mass of anger, pain, excitement, heat, and joy. This was Korn at their best. The setlist also featured many favorites like Freak on a Leash, Falling Away from Me and Got the Life, but a sweet surprise was the Floyd cover Another Brick in the Wall. It’s been too long since KORN was touring in the area, and this show proved that they had the drive, as well as the fans to take the ride.

Did you miss this show, but still need a dose of metal in your veins? You can still get tickets to the Marilyn Manson/Alice Cooper/GWAR show at Merriweather.
