Avenged Sevenfold continued the second leg of their North American tour in Nashville Tennessee at a packed Bridgestone Arena


Avenged Sevenfold embarked on the second leg of their North American tour at the bustling Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The night featured the enigmatic Kim Dracula, delivering a captivating fusion of genres, and the fan-favorite Falling in Reverse, providing solid support for a night filled with heavy-hitting performances.

Kim Dracula was the first to grace the stage, accompanied by a troupe of musicians donning demon masks. Their atmospheric performance featured dramatic mic stand demolitions, roaring chainsaws, and a dose of what can only be described as trap metal, igniting the arena’s energy levels. Kim Dracula, a natural showman, left no stone unturned in delivering an outstanding performance that satisfied every facet of the audience’s musical appetite. The stage was set, and the anticipation for the evening ahead was palpable.

Falling in Reverse followed, with Ronnie Radke taking center stage, performing atop elevated platforms that allowed his commanding presence to be seen by all. As they kicked off with “Zombified,” the arena reverberated with chants of “Ronnie! Ronnie! Ronnie!” The band’s guitarist, Christian Thompson, joined Ronnie on the platforms multiple times to deliver blistering guitar solos, while Tyler Burgress filled the arena with vibrant metalcore sounds, elevating the audience’s excitement to the max. The enigmatic presence of their mask-clad bassist added an intriguing visual element to the show. Falling in Reverse delivered an electrifying performance that thoroughly captivated the crowd.

Finally, Avenged Sevenfold took the stage, initially featuring a minimalist setup with a solitary chair at the center, where M. Shadows began performing “Game Over” wearing a sinister Nobody ski mask. The stage transformed into a fiery spectacle, with panels ablaze, eventually revealing drummer Brook Swackerman surrounded by a burning house, creating an eerie yet awe-inspiring atmosphere. As “Mattel” kicked in, M. Shadows shed the mask and moved vigorously across the stage, accompanied by fellow band members Zacky Vengeance, Synyster Gates, and Johnny Christ, who unleashed powerful riffs that complemented Shadows’ commanding vocals, setting the audience on fire. The band’s electric performance and commanding stage presence proved why they continue to sell out some of North America’s largest venues, with both their classic hits and newer material leaving a lasting impact.

Avenged Sevenfold’s second leg of their North American tour is an impressive showcase of power, artistry, and mastery. The combination of Kim Dracula, Falling in Reverse, and Avenged Sevenfold creates a powerful trifecta of acts that are a must-see for music enthusiasts. Despite a more minimalist stage setup, Avenged Sevenfold demonstrated their enduring appeal, proving that they don’t rely on extravagant theatrics to maintain their relevance in today’s music scene.

Avenged Sevenfold’s North American tour continues through October 18th of 2023.
