A7X Announce Special Acoustic Gig

Avenged Sevenfold is turning down the volume next month for what the group calls a "special, never-before-seen acoustic performance" which will take place Oct. 19 at Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Prior to the performance, the band will offer "an intimate conversation about our career."

Tickets go on sale at 3 p.m. EST today (September 28) via GrammyMuseum.org.

A7X spent the summer opening for Metallica in North America; It's planning a headline tour for 2018 but has not yet announced dates.

Meanwhile it's been releasing a series of cover songs intended as "extensions" of its latest album, "The Stage;" So far A7X has released versions of the Rolling Stones' "As Tears Go By," the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows," Del Shannon's "Runaway," Mr. Bungle's "Retrovertigo" and the Spanish-language "Malaguena Salerosa."
