The Countdown To The SOLD OUT Nightmare Is On!
Just over 24 hours from now New Medicine will take to the stage and kick off one of the biggest concerts to ever hit the Tri Cities - The Nightmare After Christmas Tour featuring New Medicine, Hollywood Undead, Stone Sour, and Avenged Sevenfold.
It's definitely going to be an epic night Saturday. We will be getting Extended Family VIP Members Ray Anderson, Dustin Hangartner, Amanda Aguilar, Tiffany Gordon, Russel Kofoed, and Aaron Sims in for a special acoustic set and Meet and Greet with New Medicine before they kick off the show. Check back for pictures and videos from the event and maybe even some signed memorabilia coming to the Private Stash. Also, I gotta say congratulations to Jason Lemar of Pasco. He was the Hot Wingz VIP winner - dinner at Hot Wingz on Columbia Center Blvd. in Kennewick before the show, 4 floor tickets, limo service from Racing Limo of Tri Cities, and also getting backstage to meet and greet Stone Sour!
Avenged Sevenfold will be your headliner for the evening and I'm stoked to see and hear the new drummer, former Confide drummer Arin Ilejay. Although he isn't an official member of the group, I'm looking forward to seeing how he sounds and mixes with the rest of the group.
I hope A7X goes back to their old school days, before City of Evil, and plays a few songs like "Lips of Deceit" from their album Sounding The Seventh Trumpet and "Eternal Rest" from their album Waking The Fallen. I'd be surprised to see them pull out the older stuff, and I assume most of the songs on the set list will come from their new album Nightmare...definitely want to hear "Buried Alive" and "God Hates Us"..."Fiction" would be an incredibly emotional song to hear live too.
Heres the setlist I want from A7X:
"Scream" - Avenged Sevenfold
"Danger Line" - Nightmare
"Eternal Rest" - Waking The Fallen
"Sidewinder" - City Of Evil
"Welcome To The Family" - Nightmare
"Girl I Know" followed up by "Crossroads" - Diamonds In The Rough
"God Hates Us" - Nightmare
"Almost Easy" - Avenged Sevenfold
"Unholy Confessions" - Waking The Fallen
"Beast And The Harlot" - City Of Evil
"Buried Alive" - Nightmare
"Lips of Deceit" - Sounding The Seventh Trumpet
"Nightmare" - Nightmare
An encore with some covers would be rad, wrap up the show with "Flash of the Blade" and "Walk". Then maybe close out with "Fiction"
It's gonna be an amazing night. We've given out all the free tickets that we have, but there are still a few left at Ticketmaster outlets including ticketmaster.com. If you're thinking about buying tickets, do yourself a favor and do it now so you wont have to just hear about how kick ass the show was! AND TICKETS ARE OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT! See ya Saturday!
