"We are very sorry to inform you that, due to an illness in the band, the [AVENGED SEVENFOLD] concert tonight [Thursday, May 19 at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas] is being postponed. We're planning to reschedule the date right now and will honor all tickets for tonight's concert on the rescheduled date. Additional information will be posted on VerizonTheatre.com tomorrow. We are so disappointed to be missing our fans in Dallas tonight and look forward to seeing you really soon."
AVENGED SEVENFOLD's fifth album, "Nightmare", has been certified gold for sales of more than half a million copies.
The band is currently on its "Welcome To The Family" headlining U.S. tour, which will wrap up on May 21 at Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD has also contributed a brand new track called "Not Ready To Die" to the newest content pack for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, the wildly successful seventh installment in the Call Of Duty video game series. The pack, called Black Ops Escalation, is ready for download worldwide through the Xbox Live network and features four new multiplayer maps.
"Not Ready To Die" is the first AVENGED studio track to feature Arin Ilejay on drums.
