“We are truly looking forward to being part of a lineup this strong,” says Disturbed’s David Draiman. “It’s always good to tour with friends.” .
Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows shares, "After recently finishing up our new record we were not sure if we were going to continue touring. We got a call from our friends at UPROAR and decided this would be the best way to introduce our fans to the new album. We are excited to share the new music with you and our friends on tour."
"Me and the boys are really looking forward to the UPROAR Festival this fall,” comments Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor. “Not only is it another chance to tour the great States, but it’s also a chance for us to play the new material that we've been working on. It’s going to be no holds barred every night, and we hope everyone is ready for it."
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will feature a full afternoon and night of activities, including a concourse midway filled with vendors and activities and a daily wrestling tournament featuring the Detroit-based Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance. The Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance UPROAR lineup will feature eight of the finest, fastest rising wrestlers in the world who will put their skills to the ultimate test during the BCWA UPROAR Invitational. The 36-event tournament will encompass 245 matches over seven weeks throughout North America. The athlete that perseveres over injuries and adversity will be named King of the Tournament.
UPROAR TV launches today and a new episode will air every Tuesday from May 11 through the end of the tour. Fans can expect exclusive behind the scenes footage and surprises from bands on the tour. In addition, Guitar Player magazine will produce the official festival program which will be distributed free at each show.
