KORN - Honored With Access Road In Bakersfield: Photos, Video Available
A small stretch of road near Bakersfield, California's Rabobank Arena was
renamed "Korn Row" (photo#1, photo#2) to honor hometown Grammy-winning rock
The newly dubbed route is actually the modest driveway and loading dock
area that runs between the back of the arena and the Burlington Northern
railroad tracks, according to The Bakersfield Californian.
Arena officials, it seems, can't rename city streets without going through
city bureaucracy, so they had to settle for an access road.
Arena manager Jim Foss said he and his team would be the first to support
any effort to name a real city street after KORN, whose members are still
very dedicated to their hometown.
"They certainly deserve it," he said.
The Korn Row idea was hatched in Foss' office and the sign went up Tuesday
(Feb. 21) â€” just in time for Friday's (Feb. 24) KORN concert at Rabobank,
the kickoff of the group's "See You on the Other Side" world tour.
Before the show, the band were honored with a bronze plaque (photo) to commemorate
a lifetime of achievement.
The ceremony was held in front of Rabobank Arena in downtown Bakersfield.
