Columbus Examiner Uproar Review, "[A7X] Has Come So Far And Never Fails To Put On An Amazing Show."

Natalie Sugarman has posted her review of the Rockstar Uproar tour from the stop in Columbus, OH. You can read the full thing here.

When it came time for Avenged to come onstage, I got chills. This is my eighth time seeing them and my first without ‘The Rev’. There was a sadness in the air and you could catch glimpses of it in their eyes. Their performance and the fact that they are moving forward as a band is done out of love and respect for Jimmy. Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater humbly plays the drums on this tour, he was one of ‘The Rev’s’ all time favorite drummers.

Their stage setup was the biggest I’ve seen yet. Towering gates and brick pillars were set up as the entrance to a dark and gothic graveyard. The beginning of their set entered with full force dramatics. As we looked up above in the rafters there was a man standing there with a rope… He glances downward. Slowly and methodically he winds the rope around his neck. As the opening chords of “Nightmare” are struck, he jumps. (Don’t worry this was all staged). This began our wild dark ride through Avenged Sevenfold’s performance. They played a lot of songs off of Nightmare and their self-titled album Avenged Sevenfold. They also played “Beast and the Harlot” from City of Evil. The blood, sweat, tears, and dedication that these boys brought to life was felt by all and crushed the arena. The blazing pyrotechnics got our hearts pounding along with their ‘Synyster’ brand of metal. After their set I was energized and in awe of how this band has come so far and never fails to put on an amazing show.

RIP Rev we miss you!
