LEWISTON — Ready the mosh pit and the Band-Aids.
Metal rockers Korn are scheduled to return to the Colisee Saturday in a show that will also feature popular Maine musicians Dead Season and up-and-comers 2 Cents.
“We have lots of tickets,” said Shawna Romain, spokeswoman for the Lewiston arena. “We’ve sold between two-thirds and three-quarters of our tickets.”
Korn has played the Colisee before, in 2001 and again in 2006 with opening act Mudvayne. That concert sold out only hours before the show.
The popular national band ought to be helped by Dead Season, which has headlined its own shows.
The four-person band from Lewiston-Auburn and Oxford Hills has been a big draw in Maine, helping to draw more than 3,300 metal fans last year to the Oxford County Fairgrounds in July.
The year before, the band drew 5,000 to the fairgrounds for a solo show.
Dead Season features Ian Truman on lead vocals, Andy Hackett on drums, Steve Church on bass and Ian’s brother Matt Truman on guitar.
The group recently played a set at the Colisee after a Maineiacs game, Romain said. They drew more than 1,000 people, she said.
Tickets for Saturday’s show are $31.50 in advance and $34.50 on the night of the show. Tickets may be purchased at the Colisee box office at 190 Birch St., by phone at 783.2009 ext. 208 or online at www.thecolisee.com. The show is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.
