Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed To Headline Uproar Festival Tour

The first annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival will begin in late summer and feature headliners Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed, along with Halestorm and Stone Sour.

Set for the Jägermeister second stage are headliners Hellyeah, as well as Airbourne, Hail The Villain, New Medicine and the Jägermeister Battle of The Bands Winner in each city. The 36-date tour launches Aug. 17 in Minneapolis and will play primarily Live Nation amphitheaters before wrapping Oct. 4 in Madison, Wis.

Uproar is produced by John Reese, John Oakes, along with Darryl Eaton and Ryan Harlacher at Creative Artists Agency, and Live Nation's Perry Lavoisne. This team co-founded and continues to co-produce the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos and the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem festivals. All of the amphitheater dates are being produced in conjunction with Live Nation.

Uproar will be a multi-activity festival tour, offering additional attractions like a concourse midway filled with vendors and a daily wrestling tournament featuring the Detroit-based Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance. The 36-event tournament will encompass 245 matches over seven weeks throughout North America. The athlete that perseveres will be named King of the Tournament.

The national on sale for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival is Saturday, June 12, and tickets will be available via RockstarUproar.com and LiveNation.com. A special pre-sale will commence Tuesday, June 8. Ticket prices range from $10 to $69.
