Spin Magazine have put up a list of their 25 Best Spring Tours and Avenged Sevenfold’s “Welcome To The Family” tour comes in at #15.
Dates: April 22-May 21
Opening Acts: Bullet for My Valentine, Sevendust, Three Days Grace
Why You Should Go: The Huntington Beach, CA, heavy metal outfit turned tragedy into triumph. After the 2009 death of drummer and co-songwriter Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan left the members questioning their future, Avenged rededicated themselves to their craft and returned last summer with their fifth album, Nightmare, in tribute to their fallen bandmate. It’s their most successful LP yet — it toppled Eminem from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. With the “Welcome To The Family Tour,” the band — with former Confide drummer Arin lejay joining them — have a list of not-to-be-missed opening acts, too, including Welsh quartet Bullet for My Valentine, whose latest LP, Fever, landed the band a career-high No. 3 on the charts.
