Apocalyptica returns to the headlining stage with their “Shadowmaker” Tour. They’ll be supported by 10 Years.
Apocalyptica brings their “Shadowmaker” tour to Sayreville and will have support from 10 Years and Failure Anthem. Time to get classical.
When we last got a visit from the guys in Apocalyptica here in the good old USA, they were actually opening up for Sixx A.M. which is the band that features Nikki Sixx. This support spot surprised a lot of fans because we had been so used to them headlining with each and every visit. Those of us who saw the band during that tour also got to see the groups new singer Frankie Perez and while it was a great live experience as always, the support slot was far too short. Now it’s time for the band to take the headlining stage once more as they continue to support their “Shadowmaker” album and if you scroll below the poster you will get the full press release and tour dates. I’ll be back afterwards with some additional thoughts. Check it out.
