Indiana's 103.9 "The Bear" radio station
conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarists Zacky
Vengeance and Synyster Gates right before they didn't make it to their Fort Wayne, Indiana show.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD was due to take stage in Fort Wayne, Indiana and they didn't make it. According to a statement released by the band, AVENGED SEVENFOLD was forced to call off the Fort Wayne show because vocalist M. Shadows "came down with a vicious case of food poisoning which required him to be hospitalized! Yes hospitalized, so it must have been a pretty damn bad case of food poisoning at that! The band feels terrible they were unable to play, as they had really been looking forward to seeing their fans in Ft. Wayne." They went on to say: "What we can tell you is that it took 3 IV bags before [M. Shadows] could leave the hospital." Talk about insane!
Last year, September 9, 2009 to be exact, AVENGED SEVENFOLD came out with a kick ass DVD/CD package: "Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough". The live DVD features the band's April 10, 2008 hometown show at the Long Beach Arena; headlining the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour, while the CD contains previously unreleased b-sides that were recorded during the making of "Avenged Sevenfold", plus various covers, and other never-before-heard material. The DVD was directed by Core Entertainment's Rafa Alcantara, who also worked on the band's critically acclaimed 2007 road documentary "All Excess".
That's what i'm talking about! There's a band who doesn't sit around with their thumb up their butt crying about how people are downloading their music for free. Their motto, "learn from it" and that's just what they're doing! They're in touch with what's really going on and they're finding other ways to keep their cash flow flowing! Tour their ass off, check! Coming out with their very own DVD with exclusive never before seen footage, check! Plus they're still rockin' their kiler t-shirts at Hot Topic; which I have by the way, incase you were wondering. What's in store next for these bad bays...a cologne...clothing line? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
Tommy Carroll from South Bend, Indiana's 103.9 The Bear radio station conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarists Zacky Vengeance and Synyster Gates just before the band canceled its February 16, 2009 show at the Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Watch the chat below.
