AVATAR COUNTRY OUT NOW

February 05, 2019 – From the Royal Court of Avatar Country on February 5 in the Year of the King (2019).
In the midst of a mostly sold out European trek, AVATAR has announced their return to North America on the aptly named “Avatar Country World Tour 2019” Presented by Revolver Magazine. Dates begin on May 16 in Buffalo, NY and stretch coast to coast before wrapping up in Las Vegas, NV on June 15 exactly thirty days later.

 

These dates include three prestigious North American rock festivals including Sonic Temple in Columbus, OH on May 17, Rocklahoma in Pryor, OK on May 26, and Domination 2019 taking place in Mexico City on May 3.

“As we’ve stated in the past, we are reaching the end of the road for the Avatar Country saga,” says vocalist Johannes Eckerström. “And if you want to see us in all our Royal Glory in tribute to the King, this might very well be your last chance. We will make sure to go out with a bang!”

 

The band is thrilled to announce that the legendary singer/songwriter and producer Devin Townsend will serve as direct support performing a full acoustic set. Southern California’s Dance With The Dead and Atlanta mainstays 68′ will open the show.

 

“This tour is extra special to us and me personally as we’ve not only amazing hand-picked openers to showcase what we think deserves more eyes and ears in ’68 and Dance with the Dead, but we also have the extreme pleasure and privilege to share the stage with Devin Townsend at an exciting phase of his career.” 

 

“I am a life long fan, and I genuinely feel that people who appreciate our willingness to experiment and walk that extra mile to be true to our vision and integrity have Mr. Townsend to thank for a lot. It will be a bucket list experience for me, and I hope we get to share it with as many people as possible.”
The 2019 trek across the U.S. will be the first time the band has toured in America since they went out with TRIVIUM on the “The Sin and the Sentence World Tour” last October.

General on-sale will be available this Friday, February 08, 2019. A special pre-sale will be available on Thursday, February 07, 2019, via Blabbermouth (password: BBM2019) and Revolver Magazine (Revolver2019).

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
