A7X To Headline Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival
Popular rock quintet Avenged Sevenfold are set to headline yet another tour. They will be taking off for the second annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival late this summer, along with a handful of other awesome bands!
The tour will take place from August 26 to October 15, and will feature headliners A7X along with the following:
- On the main stage- Bullet for my Valentine, Three Days Grace, Seether and Escape the Fate- looks like the current A7X, TDG and Sevendust will not have to end just yet, as they will all be performing together again for three more months.
- On the Best Buy Music Gear stage- Sevendust, Art of Dying, Black Tide and the Black Cloud Collective- a few of these bands aren't very well-known, but their spot on this huge tour will be an awesome opportunity for them to be exposed to thousands upon thousands of people.
This will be A7X's second time on the tour, due to popular demand:
We are really excited to be doing Uproar again," Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows told Noisecreep. "We had a blast last year and can't wait to get out on the road and do it again this year. The crowds that come out for the Uproar shows are amazing.
Not only does the tour feature 10 rockin' bands, a good portion of the proceeds will go to benefit two non-profit
organizations, one of which is called Child Find of America, which focuses on preventing and resolving child abductions. The organization was also on last year's Festival tour.
The second non-profit group is the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, which "gives financial assistance to AMA licensed, professional motocross and supercross riders that sustain career-ending injuries, which cuts into their income earning potential and livelihood. In additional to funds, the organization also offers motivational, emotional and spiritual support to riders and their families."
The Uproar Festival's tour manager, John Reese, and tour producer, John Oakes, released the following statements about the upcoming tour via Noisecreep:
Uproar has an amazing lineup this year, including the return of Avenged Sevenfold, who are headlining due to popular demand. Their epic stage show helped Uproar 2010 become a major success. We've also worked hard to keep ticket prices low for fans, tour producer John Reese told Noisecreep about why Uproar 2011 is an improvement.
Spring and summer are always jam packed with festivals and tours, so we felt the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival would be a great way to close the summer and kick off the fall, tour producer John Oakes told Noisecreep about why the tour occurs at the end of summer as opposed to get mired down by the density and volume of other summer fests.
It sounds like this year's festival is going to be brutal, so hopefully it comes to the Capital District. A7X just put on an amazing show at the Times Union Center a few weeks ago, so if they hit the area it will no doubt be a treat for fans everywhere who will never get bored of seeing them perform. The dates, locations and venues will be released within a few weeks, so make sure to check back to Q103 Albany to get all the information regarding the tour.
