The Family Values Tour was created by the American nu metal band Korn in 1998 to be an annual rock and hip hop tour. The first tour took place in 1998 and the second tour in 1999, but the tour took a hiatus in 2000 due to heavy competition from the Anger Management Tour, the Summer Sanitarium Tour, and others. The Family Values Tour happened again in 2001 before taking another hiatus, this time for four years. The Family Values Tour returned in 2006 with Korn and Deftones as the headliners. Another tour occurred in 2007, before taking another hiatus until 2013. In 2013 the event took place for the final time as a one-day music festival instead of the traditional tour under the name "Family Values Festival".
Family Values Tour 1998
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Incubus (replaced Ice Cube on October 25, 1998 for four remaining dates), Orgy, and Rammstein.
In one of the more infamous moments, Rammstein's band members all got dragged off stage by police and were subsequently arrested during their performance on Halloween. Each band decided to dress up while Rammstein were barely dressed at all, with most members performing in underwear. Their lead guitarist, Richard Kruspe, was the only one decently dressed, he wore a wedding dress. All of them had to spend the night in jail on charges of indecent exposure.
Ice Cube replacement
On September 25, 1998 due to the beginning of shooting the movie Next Friday, Ice Cube was replaced by alternative band Incubus for remaining four dates. The band is featured on the Family Values Tour '98 CD release with the song "New Skin", and can be also seen during performance of "All in the Family" on the DVD release.
Feud with Rob Zombie
Initially, Rob Zombie was to be one of the artists participating on the tour, but due to the high production costs each Rob Zombie concert would cost $125,000 in bandfees and show production alone. Therefore, Rob Zombie was replaced by German industrial metal act, Rammstein. However, explanation was somewhat confusing. The Firm, Korn's management, said Zombie continually expressed dissatisfaction over not wanting to work with a hip hop act on the bill, and was supposedly lectured by Rob Zombie's management that "rock kids don't like hip-hop." Rob Zombie's manager, Andy Gould, said those comments were false. He explained that Zombie has never even spoken to Korn, so he could not have made those comments. Although the statement released by Korn's management resulted in anger, Rob Zombie shared no bad blood with the bands participating in Family Values Tour. Next year, in 1999, both Rob Zombie and Korn got on good terms again, and launched together the highly successful "Rock is Dead" tour. Korn also toured with Rob Zombie in the summer of 2016.
Family Values Tour 1999
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Mobb Deep, Orgy, Staind, Primus, Ja Rule, Method Man and Redman, DMX, Filter, The Crystal Method.
In State College, Pennsylvania, Run DMC made a special appearance after DMX cancelled at the last minute. Run DMC also played a set in Worcester, Massachusetts as DMX was still having legal trouble.
It was during this tour that Staind's frontman Aaron Lewis, alongside Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, performed the emotional hit single "Outside" for the first time in Biloxi, Mississippi. This live version quickly found widespread radio play before being recorded in the studio for Staind's next album, Break the Cycle. Footage of this on-stage performance also was used for the song's music video.

Family Values Tour 2006

In 2006, a violent fight allegedly broke out in the mosh pit at the Family Values Tour in Atlanta, Georgia while Deftones were performing, resulting in the death of 30-year-old Andy Richardson on August 1, 2006. Lawyers representing Mr. Richardson's family said they may pursue civil actions against Korn and the show's promoters.
Andy's mother, Gloria Richardson, said "It's not right that someone could go to a concert for a good time and wind up dead. There needs to be more security or they need to not have these concerts at all", in a statement to Fox News Service made on August 1, 2006. One week later, 24-year-old Michael Scott Axley was arrested and charged with Richardson's murder. Witnesses claim Axley punched Richardson, causing his head to hit the concrete floor, an injury that ultimately proved to be fatal.
