Avenged Sevenfold Debut Cirque du Soleil–Inspired Live Experience: Watch

In December, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows got us super pumped to see the band's new live experience based around their first album since 2013, The Stage. And on Saturday, Jan. 7, they rolled it out for the headbanging public in Dublin, Ireland.

"A lot of bands live, breathe and die the 2016 metal scene," Shadows previously said, "but we just live in our own world and try to do things different than everyone else." He added that the band was considering the possibility of actually restructuring concert venues to accommodate The Stage World Tour, noting that "if it changes the industry, then great."

Get a look at the multi-screen, interdimensional experience in the video above and the clips below. Avenged Sevenfold have The Stage World Tour dates taking place in Europe through March 10.

The PRP reports that The Stage tracks "Paradigm," "Angels," "Sunny Disposition" and "God Damn" all got their live debuts.
