Hard Rock heavyweights Korn and Alice in Chains have announced a major co-headlining amphitheater tour for this summer that will include an August date in Cincinnati. The two bands — and special guests Underoath and FEVER 333 — will play Riverbend Music Center on Aug. 18.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (March 1) at 10 a.m. through ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. There is a presale that beings tomorrow for Citi credit card members (click here for details if that's you).

Korn is a pioneering band of the so-called Nu Metal movement that emerged in the ’90s. The band has sold around 40 million albums worldwide and has two Grammys to its credit. Korn's most recent album is 2016's The Serenity of Suffering.

Alice in Chains also emerged in the ’90s, exploding out of the Seattle music scene with hugely successful releases like 1992's Dirt and 1994's Jar of Flies, the first EP to ever debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart. Despite the death of lead singer Layne Staley in 2002, Alice in Chains has endured and maintained a high level of success with singer/guitarist William DuVall. Returning at full force with 2009's Grammy-nominated Black Gives Way to Blue, Alice in Chains released its sixth studio album, Rainier Fog, last year, debuting atop the Rock, Alternative and Hard Music charts on Billboard and scoring yet another Grammy nomination.
