The fall touring season just got a little more awesome with the announcement of the Rob Zombie and Korn co-headlining tour dubbed “Night of the Living Dreads.” That’s a great name for what promises to be an amazing tour, but with such big names fronting this run, it’s interesting to get the perspective of which artist is the bigger headliner. This Readers Poll asks you to answer that question.

On one hand, you’ve got Rob Zombie, a man with a wealth of hits spread across both his solo career and his time with White Zombie. Not to mention Zombie has one of the tightest and technically proficient backing bands in the biz. With guitar great John 5, bassist Piggy D. and former Marilyn Manson drummer Ginger Fish keeping the music going, you know you’re going to get a great show. And speaking of the “show,” Zombie has a knack for taking things to the next level with his production and stage props. There’s always something to visually entertain as well as what the music does to make your ears happy. Zombie will be rocking his hits as well as new selections from his ‘Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor’ album.

Korn, on the other hand, are more prone to let the music do the talking. They too have a wealth of hard rocking hits that have populated radio since their early-’90s arrival on the scene. And with the return of prodigal son guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch to their lineup, there’s more interest than ever in seeing the dimension that the musician adds to the band. The complimentary guitar work of Munky and Head, the killer bass lines from Fieldy, power drumming from Ray Luzier and the distinctive vocals of Jonathan Davis make Korn one of the top touring acts going and they can hold their own with anybody. This fall will be big for the group, who will introduce more ‘The Paradigm Shift’ songs into their shows after the album drops in October.

It’s a pretty great co-headlining bill when you get to see both Rob Zombie and Korn. Dates begin Nov. 3 in Reno, Nev. and the full itinerary can be seen here. Now comes the hard part. Tell us which act you consider to be the bigger headliner — Rob Zombie or Korn — in the Readers Poll below.
