Avenged Sevenfold and Prophets Of Rage’s End Of The World Tour was without a doubt one of the most highly-anticipated tours of the summer. Heck, I had just purchased a 3rd row ticket to it. 

Despite all of the excitement and planning, the rock powerhouses will no longer be hitting the road together. Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows took to Twitter to deliver the news, sharing that a viral infection he developed while on the road in Europe is preventing him from being able to sing. 


After trying to push through it, he realized things were only getting worse and singing more was equating to more damage. He expects to rest for three months before returning to the road, although it looks like the End Of The World Tour will not be rescheduled.
