It is Dion's first world tour in over a decade, since her Taking Chances World Tour. She has won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year, and Billboard named her the "Queen of Adult Contemporary for good reason.


09 JUNE 2020

KORN basically changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album. It was a record that would pioneer a genre, while the band’s enduring success points to a larger cultural moment. The FADER notes, “There was an unexpected opening in the pop landscape and KORN articulated a generational coming-of-angst for a claustrophobic, self-surveilled consciousness. KORN became the soundtrack for a generation’s arrival as a snarling, thrashing, systemically-restrained freak show.” Since forming, KORN has sold 40 million albums worldwide, collected two GRAMMYS, toured the world countless times, and set many records in the process that will likely never be surpassed.
