Awesome to see them open with something besides “Nightmare”. I still want them to play it, but I like when they make the setlist less predictable lol.

Show kicked ass. 5th time seeing them and they always seem to do something different. The kid who sang Chapter Four did a good job. That’s the ultimate fucking way to meet avenged! Can’t wait for Boston in October!

Tomorrow will be me 11th time seeing A7X (first time being in 2003 on the Vans Off The Wall Tour where they opened for the Suicide Machines where there was prob only like 100 people there). I was at Arin’s first show with the band In Reading PA, and he was awesome. So glad he finally now is an “official” member. I really like his playing and looking forward to hearing the rest of HAIL TO THE KING!!!

I’ve considered you a part of the family for years now, Arin, but, officially, welcome to the family. We love you and thank you for everything you’ve done. So happy.
