Inspired by the whimsical, inventive and adventurous spirit of the Age of Steam, the highly anticipated 4th annual Carnival of Madness tour-powered by Monster- has released the first batch of tour dates. Tickets go on sale this Friday, with a show stop in Philly on August 14th.
What better way to end the summer then with the commanding performance of The Carnival of Madness tour 2013. Returning to the stage after headlining the Carnival in 2010, multi-Platinum rock band Shinedown is one again the honorary guest headliner. Performances by Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment and We As Human are the perfect illusion of lion tamer, bearded lady, and strong man to Shinedown’s ringmaster to get this carnival done right.
With the tour releasing the madness August 13 in Cleveland, Oh. tickets are bound to go fast. Visit www.CarnivalofMadness.com for specific on-sale date and ticket information. VIP ticket pre-sales for these shows are now available to the “Shinedown Nation,” Shinedown’s exclusive fan club. For more information about VIP pre-sale packages and “Shinedown Nation” membership, please visit the band’s official website, www.shinedown.com. More tour dates will be released in the upcoming weeks.
The first Carnival of Madness featured in 2010 was heralded as one of the largest tours of the summer. With the original headline of Shinedown and featured Sevendust, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd and 10 Years, it only established that the madness was here to stay.
