Korn, Datsik coming to the Hawaiian Village at the Stadium Green Iguana in Tampa




Wow -- Korn isn't playing around with this small venues tour.

A day after we told you the nu-metal icons would be performing at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, we've found out the've also booked a show in Tampa at another unconventional venue -- the Hawaiian Village at the Stadium Green Iguana. Tickets are $32.50, and they go onsale Friday. Click here for details. And click here for tickets.

Perhaps what's most interesting about this show is that Korn may not even be the main draw. According to promoter AEG Live, Korn will be joined by dubstep DJs Datsik and Downlink, as well as hip-hop act Dope D.O.D. As we've well established, dubstep is massive in Tampa Bay, and Datsik absolutely ripped the house down at this year's Identity Festival stop in Tampa.

Seems hard to believe, considering Korn is used to headlining arenas and amphitheatres, but it's quite possible their audience is waning, and they're smartly latching onto dubstep as a way to draw in a new audience. (Then again, Korn's Jonathan Davis is a DJ himself, so...)

Either way, with Insane Clown Posse, Gwar and now Korn, this is turning out to be a wild, wild autumn at one of Tampa's newest, most intriguing concert venues.
