Avenged Sevenfold Heading Back On The Road With Buckcherry, Papa Roach and Saving Abel In 2009.

According to Avenged Sevenfold will be heading back out on the road in 2009 with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, and Saving Abel. You can read the full article here. I will announce dates once they are released.

“Nothing screams holiday spirit like a Buckcherry/Avenged Sevenfold tour. The hard rock co-headliners are extending their trek with a second leg set to begin Jan. 28 in Albuquerque, N.M. Joining them on the bill will be Papa Roach and Saving Abel.

The four-band bill is priced to sell, with tickets less than $40. “The idea was to take four acts that could tour alone and put them together for $40 or less to be able to let people hear three-and-a-half hours of music and experience some up-and-coming acts,” says Allen Kovac, CEO of 10th Street Entertainment, which manages Buckcherry and Papa Roach. “You’re talking about a demo that seems to be 15 to 25 [years old], and their disposable income right now is a lot less than it was before.”

Buckcherry and Avenged could have asked for higher guarantees, Kovac says, “but they wouldn’t have been able to take these other acts out with them. By taking these other bands out, they will more than make up the loss in guarantees. And when you’re doing 6,000- to 10,000- [capacity venues] as opposed to 2,000, that tends to make itself up in many, many areas.”

And taken from Buckcherrys recent blog:

“The first leg of the Buckcherry/Avenged package began in the fall, with dates “slam-dunks,” according to Goodfriend. That leg, with Shinedown in the Papa Roach slot, played in the Midwest and South and wrapped December 3 in Orlando, Florida. The upcoming leg will be majors and some secondaries in the Southwest, Northwest, and Midwest. “We’re following the same model: keep ticket prices low, lots of underground marketing with 10th Street, keeping it tight,” Goodfriend says. “We’ve been really careful and it has worked.”
