AVENGED SEVENFOLD's first show of 2024: See video and setlist

Deathbat crew pulled out songs they haven't played in over a decade

After debuting their first-ever VR concert late last month, Avenged Sevenfold played their first real-world show of 2024 last night (March 6th) in Buffalo, New York.

It kicked off the latest leg of their Life Is but a Dream... tour, and the setlist included some pretty significant tweaks compared to what the Deathbat crew were delivering to fans in 2023.

For starters, The Stage cut "Roman Sky" and the Life Is but a Dream... track "Cosmic" (one of our readers' favorite songs of 2023) each received their live debuts. But A7X also pulled out some oldies — including one track that they haven't played in 18 years!

They ripped through "Shepherd of Fire" for the first time since 2018, and Nightmare closer "Save Me" for the first time since 2011 — marking the first time drummer Brooks Wackerman (who joined in 2015) has ever played the cut live.

However, the real gem of the night was "Blinded in Chains," the savagely fast City of Evil track that Avenged Sevenfold haven't pulled out since 2006!

Otherwise, the setlist included the heavy hitters A7X fans come to expect from the band, with an emphasis on songs from Life Is but a Dream...., as is to be expected on this tour.
