AVENGED SEVENFOLD will play a free show at The Key Club in Hollywood, CA on Saturday, October 20 at 4:00 p.m. The set will be taped for broadcast on MySpace's "The List" later this month.

The only stipulation for being allowed access to the concert is is that you come dressed in your Halloween costume. It is first-come, first-served; no tickets will be made available for purchase.


I wonder how early this line is going to start forming. I might have to check this out.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD Letting Fans Come Up With Guitar Solo - Oct. 16, 2007

The Pulse of Radio reports: AVENGED SEVENFOLD is giving fans a chance to create their own guitar solo for the band's latest single, "Almost Easy". Anyone who pre-orders the group's new self-titled album or buys it after it comes out on October 30 at the iTunes store will receive a bonus "jam-along" version of the track minus guitarist Synyster Gates' solo. Fans can then devise their own solo and upload it at AvengedSevenfold.com. The solo picked by Gates as the best will earn the winner a Synyster Gates signature model guitar from Schecter Guitar Research, autographed by the entire band, along with a pair of tickets to an upcoming show where they will meet AVENGED SEVENFOLD.

Lead vocalist M. Shadows told The Pulse of Radio that the band felt "Almost Easy" would set itself apart from other rock tracks as soon as it got on the radio. "Musically, it's just bad-ass," he said. "Like, we wanted to go with the first single being something that was gonna kick ass on the radio and didn't sound like anything else out there and kind of set us apart. Everything's so formula, and what we like about this song is not formula at all. But it's still somehow under four minutes, we've got two guitar solos in there, a guitar intro, a great bridge, bad-ass chorus and some slamming riffs."


Wow,that's cool. Giving back to the fans. What a novel idea that seems to be lost on so many other bands.

Anyone else going to the free show this Saturday?
