Avenged Sevenfold is a California-based metalcore band that formed in 1999. The group has released four studio albums, but didn’t enter the U.S. charts until their third record, 2005’s “City of Evil,” peaking on the Billboard 200 at No. 30. The band’s solo tours have visited medium-sized clubs and theaters across North America. However, Avenged Sevenfold has also proven its ability on arena and stadium stages, first as a supporting act on metal icon Iron Maiden’s 2008 European tour and later on a 2008-2009 co-headlining tour of North America with hard rock band Buckcherry.
