Denver Post Uproar Review & Photos, "Last Night Was One Of The Best Sets I've Ever Seen [A7X] Deliver."

The Denver Post has put up their review of the Denver, CO stop on the Rockstar Uproar tour. Check the full thing out here as well as a photo gallery here.

Avenged Sevenfold is known for their in-your-face live show, dramatic stage designs and non-stop energy. Last night was one of the best sets I’ve ever seen them deliver. As the show started the crowd drew their attention above the stage to a man tying a pretend noose around his neck and jumping to his death, where he remained hanging throughout the band’s opening song, “Nightmare.”

The set included powerful, fist-pumping tracks like “Welcome to the Family,” “Afterlife,” “Beast and the Harlot” and “Unholy Confessions.” Front man M. Shadows was on his game last night and scored extra points by bringing the Denver Nuggets’ Birdman (Chris Andersen) on stage before the band’s finale, “Almost Easy.”

One of the highlights of the night was the acknowledgment of former drummer James “The Rev” Sullivan, who passed away in December 2009. Shadows pointed to the backdrop of the stage, which changed to a picture of Sullivan, then acknowledged current drummer Mike Portnoy, formerly of Dream Theater, who received heartfelt praise from the crowd
