The 2013 CARNIVAL OF MADNESS tour, powered by MONSTER ENERGY, returns this summer with multi-Platinum rock band SHINEDOWN, along with PAPA ROACH, SKILLET, IN THIS MOMENT and WE AS HUMAN. The tour will begin on the East Coast SUNDAY, AUGUST 11th. Tour dates will be announced on MONDAY, JUNE 3rd with the general on-sale beginning FRIDAY, JUNE 7th.
SHINEDOWN makes their triumphant return to the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS after headlining the 2010 inaugural launch, with a lineup that also included SEVENDUST, CHEVELLE, PUDDLE OF MUDD and 10 YEARS.
The first CARNIVAL OF MADNESS proved to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, heralded as a Top 50 tour by POLLSTAR. Last year’s trek featured EVANESCENCE, CHEVELLE, HALESTORM and NEW MEDICINE.
"CARNIVAL OF MADNESS is more than a show -- it's an experience," said SHINEDOWN frontman BRENT SMITH. "This year, it's all about reinvention. The culmination of five powerful and dynamic bands joining together to prove to the world that rock-n-roll is alive and well. So, step right up. Come one, come all. The CARNIVAL OF MADNESS has arrived!"
PAPA ROACH frontman JACOBY SHADDIX said, "We're so stoked to be on CARNIVAL OF MADNESS this year. It's an absolutely killer bill from top to bottom ... fans better be ready to get crazy at these shows."
