Avenged Sevenfold return to Manchester Arena alongside special guests Disturbed and In Flames.
Avenged Sevenfold achieved worldwide success with a string of best-selling albums including their 2005 platinum breakthrough City Of Evil, 2007’s Avenged Sevenfold, which topped the Billboard Alternative, Hard, and Rock Charts, and two consecutive No 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, Nightmare (2010) and their most recent, Hail To The King, achieving Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries. They have also scored a series of Top 10 singles at multiple formats, including Bat Country, Almost Easy, Scream, Nightmare, Welcome To The Family, So Far Away and Hail To The King and their latest, Shepherd of Fire.
The band, which hails from Huntington Beach, Calif., have become known for their spectacular live shows, routinely selling out arenas worldwide and headlining some of the biggest and most prestigious music festivals. 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.
Avenged Sevenfold self-released the action-adventure mobile video game Hail To The King:Deathbat to rave reviews; with music, concept, and gameplay created entirely by the band. Avenged Sevenfold appeared in stores and homes globally as the featured pre-launch artist in 2015’s Guitar Hero: Live including an industry first playable live performance.
Grammy nominated hard rock Titans, Disturbed returned to the rock arena after a 4-year hiatus with the critically acclaimed #1 album Immortalized. The album, the bands 5th consecutive US #1, has already boasted three huge #1 smashes The Vengeful One (the video currently has over 22 Million views and counting) The Light, and the global sensation that is their powerful version of the Simon & Garfield classic The Sound of Silence, (82 million views on YouTube) which also took the #1 spot at both Rock and Mainstream US Rock Radio.
Formed in Chicago in 1996, the multi-platinum band – David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass] – have scored thirteen No. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut The Sickness formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by their subsequent Grammy Award nomination as well as gold-, platinum- and double platinum-certified records.
Melodic Death Metal pioneers In Flames will be opening the bill across this run of UK dates. With a back catalogue of classics in their arsenal, the Swedish Legends are set to kick these shows off with a bang.
