Nu metal pioneers Korn will play Pinnacle Bank Arena on Feb. 18.
The Lincoln date is one of 24 stops on the band's 2020 North American Tour that is primarily made up of dates in upper Midwest and Plains states.
Korn, which brought the combination of hard and alternative rock, hip-hop and funk known as nu metal into the mainstream in the 1990s, will be touring behind “The Nothing,” its 14th studio album. Universally praised by critics, the album debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200.
A two-time Grammy Award winner, Korn has sold more than 35 million albums in its 26-year career.
Hard rockers Breaking Benjamin, the tour’s primary support act, will return to the arena for the third time, after opening for both Five Finger Death Punch and Avenged Sevenfold last year. Breaking Benjamin is slated to release “Aurora,” an album of reimagined versions of songs from its catalog in January.
