Korn will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the group’s classic third album, “Follow The Leader”, by playing three U.S. shows in late summer: September 12 at the Masonic in San Francisco, September 13 at the Palladium in Los Angeles, and September 15 at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas.

Although it was initially believed that Korn would perform the album in full at those shows, singer Jonathan Davis has confirmed that only the “majority” of the record will be played.

“We’re not gonna do it in its entirety,” Davis told Brent Porche of the 93.3 WMMR radio station. “There’s a couple of songs that are just dumb [laughs], that we don’t wanna play. We were really drunk when we made ’em. But we’re gonna play the majority of the record.”

“Follow The Leader” was a massive commercial breakthrough for KORN, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart, selling five million copies in the U.S. and yielding two hits singles in “Got The Life” and “Freak On A Leash”.
