AVENGED SEVENFOLD ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN ARENA TOUR

ELECTRIFYING STAGE SPECTACLE THAT DREW RAVE REVIEWS IN EUROPE AND UK NOW COMING TO NORTH AMERICA

DATES BEGIN JANUARY 12 AT BRIDGESTONE ARENA IN NASHVILLE
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS BREAKING BENJAMIN AND BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE

SPECIAL VIP EXPERIENCE PACKAGES AVAILABLE

AVENGED SEVENFOLD TOURING IN SUPPORT OF THE STAGE

Los Angeles, CA (October 2, 2017) – AVENGED SEVENFOLD have announced dates for their 2018 North American arena headlining tour, set to kick off January 12th at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with special guests Breaking Benjamin and Bullet For My Valentine.

The band has partnered with CID Entertainment to offer VIP Tour Experiences, including access to a VIP-only viewing area, an official signed show setlist, an invitation to the pre-show lounge featuring Avenged Sevenfold memorabilia and an exclusive A7X tour book including never-before-seen photos. For full package details, please visit CID Entertainment.

Avenged Sevenfold (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) became one of the world’s biggest rock bands by creating a sound that broke through obstacles of language, distance and culture. They raised the stakes and standards for the genre with a string of blockbuster albums, including their 2005 platinum-selling breakthrough, City Of Evil, 2007’s platinum-selling Avenged Sevenfold and two consecutive No. 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart: 2010’s Nightmare and 2013’s Hail To The King. They’ve achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries, racked up over a billion video views and a billion-plus Spotify streams, have consistently been one of the most-played bands on rock radio for over a decade with multiple No. 1 singles, and have headlined arenas and the biggest rock festivals around the globe, amassing a diehard international fan base whose members number in the millions.

They’ve proved themselves again and again to be one of the genre’s most forward-thinking artists, reinforced by critically acclaimed new album THE STAGE (Capitol), which was praised by Rolling Stone for being “epic and adventurous” and “the most aggressively bonkers music of the quintet’s career.” NME, Q, The Guardian, Guitar World, Metal Hammer and Classic Rock all lauded the album, with the latter calling it “a metal masterpiece.

The band amplified the album with a spectacular new live show that critics and fans alike hailed as brutally entertaining. After two recent nights at London’s 02 Arena, the London Evening Standard lauded Avenged Sevenfold as “a global phenomenon” and wrote that the band “specialized in preposterous fun,” calling the show “royally entertaining.” The Guardian ran a 4-star review of the show in Glasgow, writing, “Underneath retina-scorching screens and giant cosmic cube broadcasting spiraling starfields, the five-piece methodically discharge booming, arena-filling songs…these industrial assemblages of growing riffs and fret-melting solos have a default minor-key menace, yet the overall atmosphere is surprisingly joyous.” But Kerrang!  best summed up Avenged Sevenfold’s new live show: “you’ve never seen anything like it.” That acclaimed Stage spectacle is what the band is bringing to North America at the top of the year.




Avenged Sevenfold

One of the more successful and accessible metalcore outfits to come out of the early 2000s, Avenged Sevenfold endured changes both stylistic and internal during their rise from teenage troublemakers to mainstream success story. The members of Avenged Sevenfold (or A7X) were still attending high school in Huntington Beach, California when they formed their band in 1999. Nevertheless, it didn’t take long for M. Shadows (vocals), Zacky Vengeance (guitar), Synyster Gates (guitar), the Reverend (drums), and Johnny Christ(bass) to make an impression with their aggressive hybrid of metal, hard rock, and punk-pop. The band made its official debut in July 2001, releasing Sounding the Seventh Trumpet on the Goodlife label before moving to the Hopeless roster for 2003’s Waking the Fallen. Warner Bros. took interest in the band’s aggressive sound and issued its breakthrough release, City of Evil, in June 2005. The album reached number 30 on Billboard’s Top 200, propelled in part by the Top Ten success of the single “Bat Country.” The accompanying music video was heavily rotated on MTV and Fuse, where live appearances also helped boost Avenged’s growing profile, and the band ultimately won the Best New Artist Award (though they were hardly newcomers) at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.

As demand for their music increased, Avenged Sevenfoldcanceled their tour dates for fall 2006 and set to work on a fourth studio album. Boasting a grittier sound than previous releases, the self-titled/self-produced disc appeared in October 2007, debuting at number four on the Billboard Top 200 and spinning off the radio single “Almost Easy.” The album also fared well in England, where three songs cracked the Top Five of the U.K. rock charts, and Avenged Sevenfoldhelped support the release by touring North America on the Taste of Chaos tour. Released in September 2008, the CD/DVD package Live in the LBC and Diamonds in the Rough captured the band during a tour stop in Long Beach. In 2009, the band announced plans to begin work on its third studio release. That same year, drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan passed away at the age of 28, and in 2010, the band released Nightmare with replacement drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater). In 2011, they recorded the song “Carry On” for the Call of Duty Arms: Black Ops video game, before releasing 2013’s Hail to the King, which featured new drummer Arin Ilejay of Confide, and reached the number one spot on the Billboard 200. Citing “creative differences,” Ilejay left the group shortly after the album’s release, and was replaced by Brooks Wackerman (Mass Mental, Bad Religion), who would man the kit for the band’s seventh studio outing, Voltaic Oceans. The band eventually dropped the release with no pre-empted promotion, and under a different title; The Stage in October 2016 following a live-streamed, 360-degree, 3-D performance atop the Capitol building in Hollywood. The record was their longest to date and was described by the band as a concept album exploring the themes of artificial intelligence. The 16-minute closing track “Exist” featured a spoken word appearance from revered astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
