Avenged Sevenfold team up with Cirque du Soleil for upcoming live shows


Avenged Sevenfold have hired the company behind Cirque du Soleil to manage the production on their upcoming live shows.

M.Shadows says the band will consider restructuring entire venues to realise their vision for a unique stage setting.

Shadows tells Metal Hammer: "The production that's being built is different for us, different for anyone I've ever seen, the people we've hired don't do tours, they do Cirque du Soleil. This is gonna be drawn out into different types of touring, we're not going on tour for six months, it'll be two weeks on, two weeks off. It'll be a longer cycle but we're gonna roll with the punches."

He continues: "We're an oddball. A lot of bands live, breathe and die the 2016 metal scene, but we just live in our own world and try to do things different than everyone else. I don't ever feel like we fit in. We're going to be whatever we feel is right, and if it changes the industry, then great."
