The Lincoln Journal Star’s “The Stage World Tour” Review: Avenged Sevenfold Shows Rock Isn’t Dead.

The Lincoln Journal Star has posted a review of Avenged Sevenfold’s show in Lincoln, NE on “The Stage World Tour.”

Speaking of drummers, Brooks Wackerman is a monster on the kit, who threw the drive into songs like “Nightmare.” And the two guitar attack of lead stringbender Synyster Gates and rhythm man Zacky Vengeance gives A7X the punch and versatility to roar and soar, then get quietly introspective — without losing the audience, which is a very good trick.


This was a top-flight arena production with a pro stage that smartly utilized video screens and clear, clean, if very loud sound (which dramatically contrasted with the sludgy, mid-range thick Breaking Benjamin mix).

And that was delivered by a band that has been making the rock long enough that its honed its craft and music to a fine edge.
