AVENGED SEVENFOLD ANNOUNCE SPECIAL HEADLINE SHOWS, TOUR BEGINS APRIL 22ND IN LAS VEGAS
Weeks after announcing a stadium summer run with Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold have revealed plans for a series of special headline shows that begin April 22nd in Las Vegas. The dates will intersperse with the Metallica tour and include support acts Volbeat and A Day To Remember (each at different shows). The dates begin at Las Rageous, where A7X will top the bill on a lineup featuring acts such as Mastodon and Eagles of Death Metal (see full itinerary below).
Members of Deathbat Nation, the band’s new—and first official—fan club will get first crack at tickets via an exclusive 24-hour pre-sale window that begins today, March 14th.
Unlike most artist fan clubs, Deathbat Nation doesn’t require an annual fee. The band (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) sees it as an opportunity to thank A7X diehards by offering them free membership and the opportunity to be part of a community participating in unique multi-layered band/fan experiences. By registering here, members will have access to fan club only ticket pre-sales, opportunities to win VIP upgrades, rare and exclusive prizes, early venue access, early access to premium content, exclusive videos and photos, fan club only merchandise designs, opportunities to win access to meet & greets and special “members only” events and more. The band asked fans to name the club and received over 10,000 submissions within the first few hours of posting.
Fans attending the upcoming dates will experience a setlist packed with favorites old and new, including material from the A7X’s critically acclaimed new album The Stage.
Led by its title track, which hit top five at rock radio, and a companion video that’s amassed over 14 million YouTube views, The Stage, hit number one on Billboard’s Rock, Hard Rock and Alternative Albums charts, number four on the Top 200 and debuted top five on iTunes in over 35 countries. Co-produced by A7X and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), The Stage, available here, is the band’s 7th studio album and first for Capitol Records.
The band, who are currently on the cover of Revolver magazine, has spent the past month playing to packed-house arena crowds across the UK and drawing rave reviews from fans and media alike. The tour included two nights at London’s 02 Arena, performing to over 80k fans on that leg alone.
