And it is brought to us in the way of the Rockstar Uproar Festival. The rumored lineup for the inaugural tour was correct. Here’s the lineup:

Main Stage:

Avenged Sevenfold
Stone Sour

Second Stage:

Hail The Villain
New Medicine

I’d like to see Stone Sour and maybe catch Avenged Sevenfold to hear old material and check out how the drummer situation is going. Disturbed has a few good songs sprinkled in there. I’ve seen Halestorm live before, and while they weren’t bad, they weren’t exactly special (except for this).
