Avenged Sevenfold announced today that they will be returning to the Far and Middle East beginning April 16th in Tokyo, Japan, for a tour that will culminate in a special show in Abu Dhabi, UAE on May 4th.
“We are excited to go back to the Far and Middle East,” said Avenged Sevenfold front man M. Shadows. “We played to some of the most amazing crowds when we toured the album there, and we can’t wait to bring our live show back to our friends in those regions.”
Long time friends Metallica have asked Avenged Sevenfold to perform at the first ever Orion Music + More at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ, on June 24th. M. Shadows had this to say: “We really hadn’t planned to play the United States in 2012. But after Lars called to describe their plans for Orion and asked us to join them, we decided there’s no way we would miss it.” The band toured with Metallica in 2006 as part of Metallica’s “Escape From The Studio Tour” and that year M. Shadows and Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich were featured together on the cover of Revolver Magazine. 3 years later, Avenged Sevenfold toured with Metallica on their “World Magnetic” tour.
In July 2010, Avenged Sevenfold released their fifth studio album Nightmare, which earned the band its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1 and topped the Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. It has been certified gold by the RIAA and has scanned upwards of 660,000 units. The album spawned three hit singles – the gold-certified singles “Nightmare” and “Welcome To The Family,” and “So Far Away” – each of which peaked at Number 1 on the Media Base Active Rock chart. The title track was the most-played current song at Media Base Active Rock for 2010. Avenged Sevenfold have toured incessantly on their “Buried Alive” and “Welcome to the Family” tours selling out arenas around the world. They also headlined the Uproar Tour and the first annual Carolina Rebellion Festival in 2011 where the band played to a sold-out crowd of over 30,000 fans. The band also toured Iraq with the USO and has played to nearly 1,000,000 people in the last two years. Their breakout album City of Evil and the Live In The LBC DVD have both been certified platinum and the band’s self-titled album has been certified gold.

Over the years, Jakarta, with its many loyal A7X fans, has become one of our favorite cities to visit. And so it is with the deepest regret that we announce tonight’s (May 1) concert in Jakarta, Indonesia has been cancelled.
Upon arriving at the venue in the morning and consulting with local production staff it was determined that the stage at Carnaval Beach was not safe and would endanger the band and the thousands of fans who had purchased tickets. Although the building of a stage is the responsibility of the promoter, not the band, our production crew made every effort to work with local staff to find a way to overcome concerns and put on a safe event. Unfortunately the safety concerns were too great and made it impossible for us to perform.
You may read reports from others that the show was cancelled because the band was worried about its security. Do not believe it. There is only one reason the show was cancelled: the stage had numerous defects and was not safe and our fans, as well as the band and crew, could have been hurt.
Words cannot adequately express how disappointed we are at missing the opportunity to play in Jakarta.
We have been advised by the promoter that full refunds will be issue to ticketholders at the Twin Plaza Hotel Ballroom on May 5 between the hours of 10:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M.

Recently a number of fake Twitter and Facebook accounts have surfaced from impostors claiming to be members of Avenged Sevenfold as well as some family members and friends. These accounts (including some that have been wrongly “verified”) are NOT controlled by the band or anyone associated with the band, and should be ignored.
The only official A7X properties are the following:
For the only accurate sources of all things Avenged Sevenfold please solely rely on these as anything else is inaccurate and in no way represents the band. Also beware of imposters appearing to be family members, wives and friends. Odds are if you dont know them personally then they are probably not real also. Please help get rid of these impostors by reporting them to the appropriate authorities. Instructions on how to do so can be found below.
