Avenged Sevenfold build relationships with their fans which will last a lifetime says guitarist Zacky Vengeance while they have also shelled out millions of dollars to give fans a live experience they won't forget.
And the band strive to make sure anyone who attends a live A7X show leaves the arena 'feeling like a million bux.'
Vengeance was speaking to Pat Martin of the KRXQ radio station in Sacramento, California, when he opened up about the band's goals when playing live.
"We're always talking and plotting and discussing what we can do to give our fans the best possible experience and leave everyone going home with having an amazing time and a memory that will last a lifetime," he insists.
"So I certainly can't give away all of our tricks, but we spent a lot of time working on making sure that every single person there walks away feeling like they got their money's worth and then some. Because we're in the business of making fans that will last with us a lifetime. In order to do that, you've gotta give them something special."
He continues: "And all my favorite bands that I have liked for my entire life are able to do that. I mean, seeing Metallica perform at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis it was magical. They're always getting better. As they've gotten older, they have become a total monster; it's unbelievable. And I hope that we can do the same sort of thing for our fans."
Vengeance also says A7x have dipped deep into their own pockets to the tune of in excess of seven figures to ensure fans are wowed by the live experience at an Avenged Sevenfold concert.
"Without giving too much, I would say over the course of our last couple of touring cycles, certainly well into the millions of dollars have went up in flames just to give our fans a show they'll never forget."
Avenged Sevenfold are working on a seventhh studio album and a first with new man on drums Brooks Wackerman.
