Heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold have announced dates for their 2018 North American tour. The Stage tour kicks off Jan. 12 in Nashville, TN. Right now, dates end Feb. 11 in Fargo, ND, but more shows are expected to be announced soon. Canadian dates are expected to be revealed next week. Joining them on this trek are Breaking Benjamin and Bullet For My Valentine. Tickets go on sale Friday (Oct.6) at 10AM. Check out the confirmed shows below.

Also joining the band on this tour is Cirque Du Soleil for new stage production that’s sure to provide a unique experience for fans. When speaking about the acrobatic troop joining the tour, frontman M. Shadows said: "What we want to do is bring a new element to our stage production. We don't want to do all the same things that we've been doing. We're looking at a lot of digital image mapping, we're looking at inflatables, we're looking at a show that will be a brand new experience, definitely for rock and metal."

Originally, Avenged Sevenfold was supposed to embark on their headlining tour over the summer. The band changed gears when they were offered the support slot on Metallica’s stadium tour.

The band’s latest album is 2016’s The Stage, which was released with little promotion beforehand.
