I have been talking about this for a couple days and thought I posted on it, but I guess I didn’t. This show looks to be KILLER!! I honestly think we should take a road trip to see this. Anybody wanna come with? Here is what The Pulse Of Radio had to say about it.

* In other news, Avenged Sevenfold has hit Number One for the second time at rock radio in less than a year, with their new single “Welcome To The Family” following the title track from their latest album, Nightmare, to the top of the chart.
* Avenged guitarist Zacky Vengeance told us that the band instinctively knows which songs will go over well with their fans: [“We got a good mindset of what we know our fans like, and we would want to hear right off the bat, you know. And once we get out and start playing the songs live too, you start to see that there’s definitely fan favorites, and those are the ones that you really want to get out there, and be the singles for the album.”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . for the album.)
