Last summer, Avenged Sevenfold brought a blistering metal spectacle – including giant burning gates and a macabre hanging effigy on stage – to the traveling Uproar Festival. This year, their second time headlining the 33-date tour, they're planning an even more over-the-top extravaganza. "The band is getting bigger and the shows are getting bigger," says frontman M. Shadows. "This isn't your typical middle-of-the-road rock show."
