AVENGED SEVENFOLD To Play Free Show In San Jose

After wrapping up their fall dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar festival, AVENGED SEVENFOLD will hit the road for their own headlining “Buried Alive” tour, which launches in Ft. Meyers, Florida on November 23. HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, and BLACK VEIL BRIDES are also on the bill, offering fans an incredible value with four of the hottest bands in rock today. Ticket prices range from $35 to $45, including special family four pack offers in particular markets.

In keeping with its fans-first ethos, AVENGED SEVENFOLD has announced that it will perform a free show on December 16 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The concert is free to all fans, regardless of whether they were at the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar festival or not. However, Uproar ticket holders will be guaranteed free entrance and first pick of seats. Anyone who purchased a ticket for the October 14 Uproar festival date at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California will receive an e-mail with redemption details. For those who purchased with cash, on site or at a venue, please visit www.rockstaruproar.com/mv and submit your e-mail address. These tickets will only be available one week ahead of the general public starting on November 17 at 10 a.m. PT through November 23 at Midnight PT.

“We appreciate our fans so much and felt terrible that we had to miss the Uproar show in October,” says singer M. Shadows. “We want to make it up to those in the Bay Area by adding this free show to our ‘Buried Alive’ tour and making sure that anyone who was supposed to see us that night in Northern California will get the best seats in the house.”

The tour takes its name from “Buried Alive”, the fourth single from the Huntington Beach, California rock band’s gold album “Nightmare”. All three previous singles from “Nightmare” — the title track, “Welcome to the Family” and “So Far Away” — have peaked at No. 1 on the Active Rock chart. Released worldwide in July 2010, “Nightmare” earned AVENGED SEVENFOLD its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1 and topped Billboard‘s Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. The title track was the most played song at Media Base Active Rock for 2010.
