Chart-topping hard-rock act Avenged Sevenfold have announced that they will make a triumphant return to Southeast Asia in January 2015. The three-week visit, A7X’s first to the region since 2012, will include shows in Korea, Hong Kong, Taipei, Jakarta, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. The band will then return to the United States for their first ever performance on the islands of Hawaii.
Promoted by Live Nation Lushington, Avenged Sevenfold’s first-ever concert in Hong Kong will take place at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hall 10 on 14 January, 2015 (Wednesday). Tickets are HKD788, public on sale starts 29 October 2014 (Wednesday).
The Huntington Beach, CA-bred band has achieved worldwide success with a string of best-selling albums, and are touring in support of Hail To The King, which topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart upon its release, making it the band’s second consecutive No. 1 debut. They’ve earned Diamond, Platinum, and Gold awards for their album sales in nearly a dozen countries, and Hail To The King went to No. 1 in Brazil, Canada, Finland, Ireland, and the U.K, achieved gold certification in the U.S.
In August, A7X set new records of attendance as headliner for the seventh annual Mayhem Festival. The band also released their mobile action adventure role-playing game, Hail to the King: Deathbat, in October, which is now available in Apple’s App Store as well as via Google Play. Deathbat is a 3rd person, overhead dungeon crawler action RPG in the vein of The Legend of Zelda and Gauntlet Legends. The game’s story is based on the mythical origin of the Deathbat, Avenged Sevenfold’s logo and mascot.
Avenged Sevenfold is known for its spectacular live shows, routinely selling out arenas worldwide, including the U.K.’s legendary Wembley Arena, and headlining some of the biggest and most prestigious music festivals around the globe, including Download (UK), Soundwave (Australia), and Rock On The Range (USA). As evidence of the singular role they play in the zeitgeist of rock & roll in the 21st century, in November 2012 A7X 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.
