Important Update: I’ve been informed that the Kerrang! scan is incorrect. Avenged Sevenfold will only be playing one show in Ireland. Specific information on that date is not available at this time.
This week’s Kerrang! Magazine announced that Avenged Sevenfold would be playing at The 02 in Dublin on December 3rd and Odyssey Arena in Belfast on December 4th. Manager Larry Jacobson answered a ton of fan questions regarding tour plans on Twitter last week and hinted that Kerrang! would have news on Avenged Sevenfold in Ireland.
Thanks Marie for submitting the Kerrang! scan.

Zacky Vengeance called in to KISW Rock’s BJ Shea Morning Experience yesterday to chat about Pain In The Grass, how he was born in Olympia, being the product of his surroundings in Washington and California, if Avenged Sevenfold wish they could take certain songs off their set-lists, being in the studio from morning to night and the new Avenged Sevenfold album needing “a couple more weeks” of work until it heads into mixing, being thrilled to be in Avenged Sevenfold and much more.
Schecter Guitars have announced they’ll be releasing a Black & Gold Synyster Gates Custom-S and it’s set to hit stores by mid-summer. Schecter adds that, “Mr. Gates has the prototype in the studio now and has used it extensively on the new A7X recording. This one will certainly share stage time with his trusty Black n’ Silver models.”
Avenged Sevenfold have been announced as part of the line-up for KISW’s Pain In The Grass taking place September 6th and 7th in Quincy, WA. According to the Pain In The Grass website (Lineup > Main Stage > Friday) the band will headline the show on September 6th. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 17th at 10AM. Show information, ticket pricing and more can be found here.
Thanks Ash for sending this in.

- The Birmingham show has moved from Birmingham NIA to the Birmingham LG Arena.
- M Shadows talks about returning to the UK to Wembley Arena:
The task of unveiling the band’s upcoming UK tour dates fell to their fans who, following a clue from the band, flocked to London’s Wembley Arena where the tour poster was waiting for them. Speaking on their upcoming arena shows, M Shadows had the following to say: “It’s been far too long since we have played for our friends in the United Kingdom. We have been itching to get back since our last appearance at Download in 2011. We are putting the finishing touches on a new album, and can’t wait to share the new songs with you in concert.”
