Avenged Sevenfold are set to return to the live arena this August as headliners at the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.
The Orange County metal band have been off the road since the tragic death of their drummer, Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan, who passed away in December.
The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival is a completely new event and is not to be confused with the other festival tour sponsored by Rockstar, that being Mayhem Fest (Mayhem is still happening and will be headlined this year by Korn and Rob Zombie). Rockstar’s Uproar festival commences 17 August and features 36 dates across the US and Canada, and we know that many music mad Canucks will be glad to see the festival roll into the oft-ignored cities of Winnipeg and Saskatoon, while some of the dates in the States are off the beaten tour track as well including one in Scranton, PA (yeah, the town made infamous by the US version of The Office.)
Joining Avenged Sevenfold will be co-headliners Disturbed, while other highlights on the bill include Australia’s Airbourne and also a band close to our hearts here at MV’s HQ in Toronto, that being Hail The Villain from nearby Oshawa, Ontario – definitely check those lads out!
Tickets for Uproar go on sale on Saturday 12 June.
