Shinedown and Skillets Carnival of Madness Tour Starts This Week

(Gibson) It's almost time for the 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour. The annual hard rock music trek sets off Aug. 11 in Asbury, N.J., and will travel through over two dozen cities before wrapping up Sept. 18 in Puyallup, Wash.

This year's lineup is spearheaded by Shinedown, who headlined the inaugural Carnival of Madness tour in 2010, as well as Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment and We as Human.

"Carnival of Madness is more than a show— it's an experience," Shinedown frontman Brent Smith said in a statement. "This year, it's all about reinvention. The culmination of five powerful and dynamic bands joining together to prove to the world that rock-n-roll is alive and well…"

"I can hardly wait for the Carnival of Madness," said John Cooper, frontman for Christian rockers Skillet. ". . . It'll be our first tour playing songs from our new album, Rise, so Skillet will be doing our best to bring the pain every night!" more on this story
