Avenged Sevenfold Announce "Nightmare After Christmas" Tour Dates

Tickets on Sale in Early December

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2010) - With fans in the U.S. clamoring for their return, Southern California's Avenged Sevenfold will hit the road for the "Nightmare After Christmas" Tour on January 20th, 2011, for a headlining North American tour.

Currently on the road for a sold-out tour in Europe, Avenged Sevenfold are touring in support of their fifth studio album, Nightmare, which exploded at No. 1 on Billboard's album chart and also topped Billboard's Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. Its No. 1 debut is the band's highest first-week chart position ever. The album's title track has been the most-played track at Active Rock for an entire year.

The tour features support from Stone Sour, who have a multi-week No. 1 Rock hit with "Say You'll Haunt Me," and Hollywood Undead, whose new album and follow-up to the gold-selling Swan Songs is due in March 2011.

Read what critics have been saying about Avenged Sevenfold live!

"Their set was easily one of the most impressive performances I've seen in a very long time." -- Seattle Post Intelligencer

"The band sounded tighter and more focused than ever." -- Arizona Republic

"Aside from the energy present in singer Shadow's delivery, the guitar work of Avenged is top notch. Both Zacky Vengeance and Synyster Gates do some mind-bending solos, but more impressively they perfectly harmonize many of the complicated leads." -- OC Weekly
