Tour Preview: Carnival Of Madness

Kicking off what is sure to become THE annual rock event each summer – Shinedown announced that they will headline the inaugural year of the Carnival Of Madness Tour. Everybody needs a little madness in their life, so this summer the boys in Shinedown will be bringing several of their friends along with them.

Joining them on the road for 27 dates this summer in North America will be a who’s-who of rock bands with Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd, Sevendust, and 10 Years.

“I am beyond excited for this tour, the production is incredible, the line up is amazing, and the energy of having all five bands on one stage is going to be like nothing else this summer,” exclaimed Shinedown lead singer Brent Smith. “Get ready for the Carnival of Madness!”

We’re excited to be on the Carnival of Madness tour this Summer promoting what will be our third single from Sci-Fi Crimes,” remarked lead singer Pete Loeffler. “It will be great to get out there and see our fans on this multi-band bill!”

“I’m very proud and excited to announce In De Goot’s involvement in the launch of the annual Carnival of Madness tour,” commented In De Goot owner Bill McGathy. “The lineup of Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust and 10 Years guarantees that this event will be woven from the fabric of rock and radio in America. To quote William Shakespeare (I think he works at Livenation) ‘Something wicked this way comes.”
