With a massive stage featuring bright orange flames and their now-iconic “Deathbat” prop bathed in deep purple light, Avenged Sevenfold‘s touring in support of their ‘Nightmare’ album roared to a close last Saturday night, Dec. 17, in Ontario, Calif.

In a packed Citizens Business Bank Arena, the favorite musical sons from Huntington Beach brought the curtain down on nearly two years of touring in support of their number one album, ‘Nightmare.’ The trek kicked off 21 months ago with ex-Dream Theater, current Adrenaline Mob member Mike Portnoy sitting in for late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, and ended with Arin llejay behind the kit.

Onstage Saturday night, frontman M. Shadows talked about the tour, Sullivan, and how happy he was to finally be performing near home (the closest the band has come since a fall 2010 UPROAR appearance in Irvine). With many friends and family members in the house, the band seemed relaxed and comfortable on stage, delivering a blistering set that proved once more just what a polished powerhouse they have become.
