Free show alert!

Avenged Sevenfold will play a free show in at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. on Dec. 16. Ticket stub holders from the Oct. 14 UPROAR show are guaranteed free entrance, as well as the first pick of seats before tickets are made available. Even though it is a free show for all Bay Area A7X fans, tickets will be printed for the event.

The show is free to all fans, regardless if they were or weren't at the aforementioned UPROAR Show. Anyone who purchased a ticket for the Oct.14 UPROAR Festival date at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., will receive an e-mail with redemption details.

For those who purchased with cash, on site or at a venue, please go here and submit your e-mail address. These tickets will only be available one week ahead of the general public starting on today at 10 AM PT through Nov. 23 at Midnight PT.

The band, which essentially lives on the road, is headlining Buried Alive Tour with Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides, which kicks off on Nov. 23.

"We appreciate our fans so much and felt terrible that we had to miss the UPROAR show in October," says M. Shadows. "We want to make it up to those in the Bay Area by adding this free show to our 'Buried Alive' tour and making sure that anyone who was supposed to see us that night in Northern California will get the best seats in the house."
