After wrapping up their fall dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar festival, Avenged Sevenfold will hit the road for their own headlining "Buried Alive" tour, which launches in Ft. Meyers, Florida on November 23. Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides (a band Sebastian Bach is high on) are also on the bill.
In keeping with its fans-first ethos, Avenged Sevenfold has announced that it will perform a free show on December 16 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The concert is free to all fans, regardless of whether they were at the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar festival or not. However, Uproar ticket holders will be guaranteed free entrance and first pick of seats.
The tour takes its name from "Buried Alive", the fourth single from the Huntington Beach, California rock band's record "Nightmare". All three previous singles from "Nightmare", "Welcome to the Family" and "So Far Away" have peaked at No. 1 on the Active Rock chart. Released worldwide in July 2010, "Nightmare" earned Avenged Sevenfold its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1 and topped Billboard's Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. The title track was the most played song at Media Base Active Rock for 2010.
