Hollywood, Fla. (February 19, 2014) – Chart-topping hard rock band Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) will bring their Shepherd of Fire Tour with special guests HellYeah to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 21 at 11 a.m.
Shepherd of Fire, which is based on the band's single of the same name, hit No. 1 on both the Mainstream Rock and Active Rock charts, and is the second single to reach No. 1 from A7X's current album Hail To The King. Upon its release in August, Hail To The King topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, making it A7X's second consecutive No. 1 debut. The album also went to No. 1 in Brazil, Canada, Finland, Ireland and the U.K.
The Huntington Beach, Calif., band has become known for its spectacular live shows, routinely selling out arenas worldwide and headlining some of the most prestigious music festivals. Avenged Sevenfold has achieved international success with a string of chart-topping albums, beginning in 2005 with their platinum-selling City of Evil. These hard rockers also earned critical acclaim with their 2007 self-titled album, and enjoyed stints atop the Billboard chart in 2010 with Nightmare.
Other Top 10 singles from the group, who have garnered gold, diamond and platinum awards in nearly a dozen countries, include "Bat Country," "Almost Easy," "Scream," "Nightmare," "Welcome to the Family," "So Far Away," "Hail To The King," and their latest, "Shepherd of Fire."
In November 2012, they made an unprecedented appearance as characters in Call of Duty Black Ops 2 — the biggest-selling video game of all time, which featured the band's performance of "Carry On," written specifically for the game.
The "Shepherd of Fire Tour," which kicks off on April 12th in British Columbia, will hit arenas in the United States and Canada. The band will also headline the U.S.'s biggest rock festivals, Carolina Rebellion, Rise Above Fest, and Rock on The Range.
