The sixth annual Carnival Of Madness festival will be going on later this summer and it will be here in the US, unlike last year!
Last year it went over to the UK, and featured Shinedown and Halestorm. This year, that lineup is coming to the US!
Carnival Of Madness this year will be headlined by Shinedown, and supported by Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry and Whiskey Myers.
Pre-order tickets are on sale NOW, and the tour begins on July 20! It goes through August 18. Fun fact, Immortal Music attended the very first Carnival Of Madness! It was ironically July 20, 2010, and it was one of the first dates of the tour as well. So clearly, they're sticking to tradition a bit.
Something else that's very cool about the ticket options for this tour is that you can get a 3D Commemorative ticket, if you so choose to do so! Where has this idea always been??? Most of us keep our concert tickets anyways, so doing a special commemorative ticket is absolutely brilliant.

If they're not coming to you on the Carnival of Madness tour, don't fret! They still may be coming near you. Shinedown will be going out on tour next month, and in that tour will be many festivals such as the 98 Rockfest, Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Rock On The Range, and Rock N Derby. Some of their tour dates are also with Five Finger Death Punch and POD.
