The Madness Unleashes August 13 in Cleveland, OH with Shinedown, Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment and We As Human
The first batch of dates for the highly anticipated Carnival of Madness tour, sponsored by Monster Energy, have been announced.
Sure to be known once again as one of this summer’s best tours, the Carnival of Madness returns with multi-platinum rock band Shinedown, along with Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment, and We As Human. The tour kicks off in Cleveland, OH on Tuesday, August 13. Go to CarnivalofMadness.com for specific on-sale date and ticket information, and see below for the first part of the tour’s itinerary. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
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.
Shinedown makes their triumphant return to the Carnival of Madness after headlining the 2010 inaugural launch, with a lineup that also included Sevendust, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, and 10 Years. The first Carnival of Madness proved to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, heralded as a Top 50 tour by Pollstar. Last year’s trek featured Evanescence, Chevelle, Halestorm, and New Medicine.
