After a six-year hiatus, Korn will bring back their Family Values Tour, sort of -- not as a tour but as a one-night event.  The show will take place October 5 at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, CO.  And bassist Reginald Arvizu , a.k.a. Fieldy , says the band hopes to make the event an annual occurrence, provided they can find the right time to stage it.

“I think it’s just timing really…because we’ve been touring the whole world and realizing you got Europe that have all the festivals, now the United States is picking up, so it’s placing the puzzle where you got Lollapalooza, you got Family Values hopefully once a year,” he tells ABC News Radio. “As long as it’s not in the way of anything else, that’s what we’re trying to do is just fit everything in.”

The lineup for this year’s concert will includes sets by Asking Alexandria , Hollywood Undead , Machine Gun Kelly and Beware of Darkness . Looking back on the event’s long history, Fieldy notes the Family Values concerts will always be his favorite memories about playing live.

“Twenty years of doing this I think Family Values was one of the coolest concerts I ever been to,” he explains. “We had a rotating stage and every band had mass production so you’re non-stop seeing this huge show the whole time.  It’s the most entertaining concert I’ve ever seen to this day.”

Korn’s Family Values Tour originally launched in 1998 as a multi-date, multi-city rock and hip-hop package trek, and featured additional runs in 1999, 2001, 2006 and 2007.  Over the years, the tour featured a variety of acts including Limp Bizkit , Linkin Park , Evanescence , Ja Rule , Method Man , Redman and DMX , among others.
