Outune.net have put up a small review and some photos from Avenged Sevenfold’s performance in Treviso, Italy. Check out the pictures here.
First summer date for A7x at Treviso’s Palaverde (Villorba to be more precise). This is the only date in Northern Italy as the other one is scheduled in Rome, 21st June. There are no relevant news about the concert: few differences from the Milan Show of this Autumn for the 70 minutes setlist. But still they are an awesome band to see live: they are always strong and smiling. Peculiar style, striking a pose, they can play very well and the iron gates scenery plays an evocative role in the stage view.
Arin Ilejay, the drummer, does not display himself too much, even though he is undeniably good behind the drum set, he is obviously overshadowed by Jimmy Sullivan. The setlist mentioned, half devoted to the latest album, was brief and they were obliged to cut some great songs off, first of all, Beast and the Harlot. Maybe is not the right choice and not just because this tour is in Europe for the second time. The audience is quite large, but they definitely deserve more. Most of it was made up of youngster, ready for the school’s end and state exams. With all the pros and cons of the case.
Their unconditional loyalty for the band leads to choirs and screams even one hour before the begin. The band can for sure count on the best fans a band could wish, and Matt Shadows himself commented it-
We cannot forgive the YouTube generation though: the circle pit at the end of the show, with Crossroads riffs, was reduced to a bunch of people jumping, like a bad punk rock concert in a suburbia pub. Quite tragicomic.
Maybe this is the only shadow cast on this brief but really intense show.
Thanks Michaelo for sending this in and Slacky at A7X Italia for sending in the translation.
