Avenged Sevenfold to embark on North American headlining tour in January 2018


Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows has confirmed to Kaytie of the Razor 94.7 radio station that the band will embark on a full North American headlining tour in January and February 2018. The trek, will be announced after the completion of band's current stadium run as the support act for Metallica.

According to M.Shadows, Avenged Sevenfold had to make the difficult decision to postpone its own tour so that they could be part of the biggest rock package of the summer. "It was actually a little bit of a tough decision, because we had just paid for the whole stage to get built, and that was a lot of money to build that stage set. And we were able to use it in Europe and in the U.K., but it is by no means paid off. So the whole idea was to go and take it throughout America, but then we got the call from Lars Ulrich, and it was, like, 'We can't pass that up.' It's just too big of a tour, it'll be too much fun. It's too good for the rock fan; the rock fans are gonna love that tour. So we basically had to say, 'Okay, we're just gonna put the stage in storage for a year and come back to it.' And hopefully that will all work out for us."
