Shinedown to Headline Avalanche Tour at The Orbit Room in Grand Rapids


The lineup for this year’s Avalanche Tour has been revealed. Shinedown will headline the trek with Adelitas Way on board to support. New Medicine and Art of Dying will split opening duties on select dates, which luckily include a stop in Grand Rapids.

The 2012 Avalanche Tour kicks off March 27 in Anaheim, CA and will hit up The Orbit Room on April 14. The full schedule can be seen below. Pre-sale tickets go on sale Wednesday, February 1, on the official Avalanche Tour website and tickets to the general public will be available starting on Saturday, February 4.

This year’s outing is scaled back compared to the 2011 edition, which featured Stone Sour, Skillet, Theory of a Deadman, Halestorm and Art of Dying playing at arenas across the country, including The DeltaPlex last April. Check out GRD’s coverage from that show, including interviews with Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor, Skillet’s John Cooper and a GRD Live Blitz with Halestorm.

This upcoming tour will be more intimate, stopping by clubs and theatres across the U.S. instead of bigger venues. Shinedown will tour in support of their new album Amaryllis, due out March 27 from Atlantic Records.
