Minnesota Uproar Review, "Their [A7X's] Show Was Truthfully One Of The Most Theatrical I Have Seen.."

Josh Olson whose picture is featured in the post below also reviewed the Rockstar Uproar show that hit Minneapolis, MN for The Sound Alarm. You can read the entire thing as well as see a second picture of M Shadows from the show here. This is what he had to say about Avenged Sevenfold’s set:

After that the concert moved inside the Target Center with the Halestorm, Stone Sour, Avenged Sevenfold, and Disturbed. Halestorm and Stone Sour put on a decent classic rock show with nothing incredibly special. This all changed when Avenged Sevenfold began their set. Avenged Sevenfold gave it everything they had as they played, and their show was truthfully one of the most theatrical I have seen in a very long time. With special effects including backdrop changes, bursts of fire, and fireworks, everything was not only exciting, but simply amazing to see. One of the most noticeable theatrical effects the band employed wasn’t as typical. Before the band broke into their first song, “Nightmare,” a man had a spotlight shined on him as he jumped from the top of the rafters with a noose around his neck (obviously fake, but still great shock value). The man then hung there for the rest of the opening song, after which actors dressed in biohazard clothing laid the man on a stretcher and removed him from the stage. I have a feeling that these effects and stunts will only become greater as the tour progresses.
