      In their defense, this is a step up for Avenged Sevenfold. Their management has been booking them tours with the likes of 3 Days Grace and Shinedown types for too long.

      Have to agree with everyone else and say that Ax7 could be dropped, but If Deftones are headlining (my guess is Co-headlining) it would be a fantastic tour. 5 years ago I would’ve written a band like Ghost off as a joke, but now that I am older, I realize what I would be missing out on. Saw Ghost on the Mastodon/Opeth tour last spring…. would love to see them again!

        I’d love to see A7X if they were playing some older jams like Unholy Confessions. That album was so good when it came out. I saw a whole concert from them on Fuse one night and it was really good. I could definitely do without their shitty image though… wearing make-up and dressing like a emo girl can be a real deal-breaker.

          I saw them on Warped Tour 2004 and 2005 when they looked like an AFI cover band. Posts of the 2005 WT setlist have these: Chapter Four, Beast and the Harlot, Eternal Rest, Bat Country, Unholy Confessions.

          God damnit, just looked at the Soaring Eagle casino website and A7X is playing with Halestorm the same day as Warped Tour.

        • @SSS it’s not about the image man. If you only judged the Blue Man Group on their image and not the fantastic sound they produce then you surely would be missing out.

          kturl, you’re right. I guess I should have included everything I hate about A7X, not just their image. Here goes… ‘Waking the Fallen’ was great, but everything after is pretty much a different band. When I say different band, I mean terrible. It’s like some new age cock-rock for the girls and kiddies, so their sweeeet image compliments it very well. Even the guitar player’s name is sweeeeeet. The fact that I have to hope for them to play older songs should say enough.

          Good call on the Blue Man Group reference and example. Though I did say their image is bad, I certainly didn’t judge this book by it’s cover. I have listened to everything A7X has put out to date. It’s just a coincidence that their music is now as bad as their image.

          When I read that post for ‘God Hates Us,’ I immediately thought of Remembering Never.

          That A7X song actually isn’t a bad one, and they pulled it off pretty well. Surprisingly, they weren’t dressed like little girls on Halloween either. Zach’s screams were much better than I expected. His singing sounded good on some of it too, kind of like Mr. Anselmo a couple times. There are a few parts where he was over-singing really bad though. Those screams would sound badass when they play some older tunes.

      A7X is a great live band, one of the greatest live performances I have ever seen, seeing them on tour with Deftones and Ghost? I can’t afford to miss this.

          They are amazing live. Doesn’t change the fact that they lost my interest after ‘Waking the Fallen.’ Sadly, sellouts can still be great live bands.

          It’s kind of embarrassing because 90% of the line up is shit, but Uproar 11, A7X and Sevendust were great, I was 15 and a bit of a cock rocker back then, still I remember when I was on the lawn and a lady from the festival came up too us and gave us pit passes, I guess Karma wanted my first concert to be something special.

        • Pops had to drag his 8 year-old son along to Eddie Money, 1987. First show I chose to go to was Aerosmith/Megadeth, summer 1993. Show kicked ass.

          First concert, 12 years old, 1996 Marilyn Manson Anti-Christ Superstar. I still can’t believe my parents took me and stayed for the whole show.

          Are we really doing the first concert thing? Ok, then.

          I was a late-bloomer. First concert was The Day Off-Fest (an Ozzfest off-date) in 2001 when I was 17. Mudvayne, Disturbed, Linkin Park and Papa Roach. Slipknot were supposed to be the headliners but backed out at the last minute to do Conan. Drowning Pool were added as openers, but we arrived just as Mudvayne were starting.

          It was a nu-metal paradise at the time, but I wouldn’t pay to see it again.

        • The year? 1991…I was 9. I went to see the great Van Halen with an Uncle. It was Hagar but it was still cool as shit. The opener? Alice In Chains when all they had out was Facelift…my jaw was on the floor or so i am told.

        • Dude, Hagar is better than Roth. However, the Roth albums were better than the Hagar albums. Besides, they were touring for F.U.C.K. at that time, when VH hit their stride live with Sammy.

          92.3 K-Rock Dysfunctional Family Picnic 4.0 in 2000 at PNC Bank Arts center in NJ. Ozzy, STP, Deftones, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, Sevendust, etc. I was 12 years old and unfortunately loved Godsmack and Limp Bizkit at the time. Boy, times have changed.

          However, one thing I do remember from that show is that Limp Bizkit was like 45 minutes late and Fred was such a douche once he got on stage talking about how they didn’t give a shit that they were cutting other bands’ set times (bands that were slotted ahead of them, e.g. Ozzy, STP). We left before an abomination of a band named Creed HEADLINED this event over Ozzy. Hey, at least I knew Creed was shitty when I was 12.

          Haha, I was just being a dick. I’m sure they are still good at playing their instruments live or whatever. I just think all the music they’ve made in the last decade is terrible and I felt like being an ass.

          Considering that I unintentionally started it, I might as well join in. The Smashing Pumpkins, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Tour, 1996. Changed my life forever.

        • Awesome reading these – for me, 8th grade, a buddy’s older sister took us to see GNR on the Use Your Illusion tour w/ Soundgarden opening. It was just bad ass. GNR was at least an hour late and they flat out didn’t care. I took my 5 year old daughter to see Junius’s sound check in February – not technically a concert, but she saw them play a couple songs and ate dinner with them. Now she’ll be crushed when she learns that not every concert is a personal show w/ dinner hahaha.

          I saw Cheap Trick when I was 10 in 1999. I was gonna see Judas Priest with Anthrax opening for my 10th birthday but it either sold out or fell through. Growing up with a mom that was a librarian I got my hands on a lot of awesome movies, books and music.

      Deftones have been one of my favorite bands for a very long time now, but I still haven’t seen them live. They are that one band that keeps getting away. My girlfriend likes A7X and I loved their album ‘Waking the Fallen,’ so this might be a good time to finally go. I gave Ghost a legitimate chance, listened to the new album from front to back, and hated every single second of it. I’m not too sure how else to put it… just awful.

      • I second your opinion of Ghost. It’s bad enough I didnt like the music by itself, then I had to go and YouTube the dudes. I was out after I saw them.

          Yeah, it’s just so damn hard to put into words… I feel as if it kind of sounds like Dog Fashion Disco without any sort of musicianship, just the weirdness. So… it leaves me feeling molested when I’m done listening.

      I’d actually like to see this tour happen. I’ve seen Deftones with all sorts of bands throughout the years. Anybody remember them touring with Godsmack and Puddle of Mudd in 2001? I’m not a Godsmack fan but their live show kept me interested. You do tours like this to crossover so as not play to the same audiences and gain new fans. Avenged Sevenfold are some solid musicians and put on a good live show so I think it would be worth the ticket price.

      Pretty interesting to see who the Deftones have toured with throughout the years. http://www.deftonesworld.com/old-tour-dates-archive/

        2003 US Fall Tour / Headline Tour with Clutch, Denali, Poison the Well, Thursday & Thrice

        How do you even begin to describe the crowd for that one?

          Exactly. I was at the Dallas date for this tour..talk about a diverse crowd…Emo/Stoner/Indie/Hardcore/Metalhead

          Deftones are one of the few bands out there that can bring those types of fans together.
