Admittedly the phrase “If the music’s too loud you’re too old,” has finally caught up with me. With that in mind, I shall be celebrating at Hard Rock Live with Avenged Sevenfold decked in my leather gear with hear plugs in place. The Chart-topping hard rock band is bringing their Shepherd of Fire Tour with special guests HellYeah to this first class venue April 30, 2014.
Known for their spectacular live shows Shepherd of Fire, will certainly be no exception. The band’s single of the same name, hit No. 1 on both the Mainstream Rock and Active Rock charts, and is the second single to reach No. 1 from A7X’s current album Hail to the King. Upon its release in August, Hail to the King topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, making it A7X’s second consecutive No. 1 debut. The album also went to No. 1 in Brazil, Canada, Finland, Ireland and the U.K.
Avenged Sevenfold has routinely sold out arenas worldwide and headlined some of the most prestigious music festivals. It was their 2005 platinum settling CITY OF EVIL that shot the band into the international market and subsequent success. They have also earned critical acclaim with their 2007 self-titled album and enjoyed with top of Billboard’s chart in 2010 with their release NIGHTMARE.
Other Top 10 singles from the group, who have garnered gold, diamond and platinum awards in nearly a dozen countries, include “Bat Country,” “Almost Easy,” “Scream,” “Nightmare,” “Welcome to the Family,” “So Far Away,” “Hail to the King,” and their latest, “Shepherd of Fire.”
In November 2012, they made an unprecedented appearance as characters in Call of Duty Black Ops 2 – the biggest-selling video game of all time, which featured the band’s performance of “Carry On,” written specifically for the game.
The “Shepherd of Fire Tour,” which kicks off on April 12th in British Columbia, will hit arenas in the United States and Canada. The band will also headline the U.S.’s biggest rock festivals, Carolina Rebellion, Rise Above Fest, and Rock on The Range.
