Avenged Sevenfold Enlist ‘Cirque du Soleil’ Production Company For Upcoming Touring


Avenged Sevenfold have previously said they intend “flip the script” with upcoming touring, merch and more in support of their latest album, “The Stage“. When it comes to live shows, we now have a better idea of just what they have in mind. Frontman M. Shadows has told Metal Hammer that the group have enlisted a production company that works for Cirque Du Soleil for their upcoming live appearances. He said of that:

“The production that’s being built is different for us, different for anyone I’ve ever seen, the people we’ve hired don’t do tours, they do Cirque du Soleil. This is gonna be drawn out into different types of touring, we’re not going on tour for six months, it’ll be two weeks on, two weeks off.

It’ll be a longer cycle but we’re gonna roll with the punches. We’re an oddball. A lot of bands live, breathe and die the 2016 metal scene, but we just live in our own world and try to do things different than everyone else. I don’t ever feel like we fit in. We’re going to be whatever we feel is right, and if it changes the industry, then great.”
