Toronto, Ontario – Avenged Sevenfold’s Life Is But A Dream… tour made their second stop at Scotiabank Arena where they brought incredible vibes and a fantastic time to dedicated fans.

The first to take the stage was Sullivan King. He was perched atop his DJ booth that was surrounded by screens while he played hard-hitting remixes of well-loved songs as well as a few originals. The part that really stood out during King’s set was the visuals both on the big screen as well as on his booth that accompanied an intense light show.

Later, Poppy opened with “BLOODMONEY” and “Church Outfit” paired with great movement around the stage. Her cover of “V.A.N” by Bad Omens was spectacular as well. Her set closed with “Concrete” which was full of high energy excitement that got the crowd ready for the final band.

As the lights dimmed one more time, Avenged Sevenfold took the stage and the crowd roared with excitement. They began with “Game Over,” the opening track to their Life Is But A Dream… album and perfectly transitioned into “Mattel” which is track number two. Their set also included some fan-favorites such as “Shepherd of Fire,” “Blinded in Chains,” and “Save Me” which before this tour had not been performed in quite some time. During “Hail To The King,” vocalist M. Shadows turned to the crowd to sing the chorus, which they shouted with vigor.

Throughout the entire set, the visuals on the screens behind the band were creative, including visualizers from their music videos on YouTube and even some lyrics during “We Love You.” After a few more of their more popular songs, the lights went dark and the crowd shouted for an encore. Their cries were answered when the band returned with “Cosmic” which was a great low-energy and hard hitting song to close the show with.
