The AREA15 venue describes itself as “Las Vegas’ newest experiential entertainment district offering live events, immersive activations, monumental art installations, extraordinary design elements, unique retail, bars and eateries, and much more.”

A7X notes the 360 experience will feature “grand, immersive visuals and an exclusive curated merch pop-up shop.” Complete details on the event can be found at AREA15.com, where fans can also buy tickets.

Life Is But A Dream…, Avenged Sevenfold’s first new album in seven years, comes out June 2 and is available for pre-save/pre-order here. Special album-themed merch is available at A7Xworld.com.


Synyster Gates Tattooed A7X Fans While Drunk at Recent Event

There’s no cute way to introduce this story: A drunken Synyster Gates tattooed some Avenged Sevenfold fans at a recent event, and the tattoos are…well…interesting.

The event in question was organized by the Deathbats Club, a unique NFT/blockchain grouping that is limited to 10,000 members and derives its name from A7X’s logo. Gates was in attendance at the event, along with M. Shadows, Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ and Brooks Wackerman.

Gates shared/retweeted a number of photos from the event showing off his drunken tattoo work. Scroll below to see the type of ink some fans received! Once again, they’re interesting.
