Heavy metal fans in the UAE will be able to rock out at a live concert by US band Avenged Sevenfold on 4 May.

Performing at the Flash Forum on Yas Island, the group is one of the biggest rock acts in the world and this will mark the first time they have performed in the UAE.

“We are excited to go back to the Far and Middle East,” said Avenged Sevenfold front man M. Shadows. "We played to some of the most amazing crowds when we toured the album there, and we can't wait to bring our live show back to our friends in those regions.”

Avenged Sevenfold’s album Nightmare was released in July 2010 and debuted at number one internationally.  The album spawned three hit singles – Nightmare, Welcome To The Family, and So Far Away – each of which peaked at number one.

The band has played to nearly one million people in the past two years. Their breakout album City of Evil and the Live In The LBC DVD have both been certified platinum and the band’s self-titled album has been certified gold all over the world.
