Metalholic have put up a great review of Avenged Sevenfold’s stop in Knoxville, TN on the “Nightmare After Christmas” tour. Check out the entire thing here.
Now on to the highlight of the evening Avenged Sevenfold and yes it was most certainly a huge highlight. This was my first A7X show and there is absolutely nothing like it. Their stage set was big and suited the performance and I have never seen more pyrotechnics in my life. I was close to the stage and the heat from all those flames was intense, this entire show is intense, theatrical and just plain LOUD.
Avenged Sevenfold puts on one of the strongest and best performances I believe I have ever seen and let me tell you I have seen a lot, ALOT. I have absolutely nothing to complain about, nothing. I loved every minute of it, you had aggression, you had fun, you had heartfelt moments, it was slow, fast, there was pyro, crowd interaction, band interaction, A7X has it all. Yes it had everything, the only thing missing was The Rev, he may be physically no longer on this earth, but he was in that Coliseum.
Thank you to Maven who wrote the review for sending this in.
