With chart-topping heavyweights, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed scheduled for a double assault in Ireland’s 3Arena on January 7th, Overdrive can reveal that Trident Events will be hosting the aftershow in Dublin’s Fibber Magees directly after the show with confirmed performances from rising Irish metal beasts, The Devil Wants Her Swagger Back and Call To Arms. 


Following Avenged Sevenfold’s last headline performance in Ireland back in 2013, the band have since headlined the prestigious Download Festival in the UK and gained a number one album in Ireland the UK and America with the release of ‘Hail To The King‘.

Returning once more to Ireland, this time with platinum selling rock / metal titans Disturbed along for the ride (the band’s first Irish performance since 2005), there is no doubt that this exclusive Irish performance will be one for the history books.

Tickets for Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed are on sale now from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide as well as Sound Cellar.

The Avenged Sevenfold / Disturbed aftershow will feature live performances from some of Irelands most exciting metal bands. A double bill of crushing metal is expected from The Devil Wants Her Swagger Back who recently released their intensely brilliant ‘Malice‘ EP back in September. Also performing on the night will be Call To Arms, who are no strangers to causing an almighty amount of pit action and Dj sets late into the night courtesy of Trident Events.


The Devil Wants Her Swagger Back are a brutal force to be reckoned with and never disappoint in a live setting. This will be the band’s first show of 2017 and with the success of their latest release ‘Malice‘, the Dublin four-piece will no doubt be firing on all cylinders. Not to be missed! Check out the face-melting video for ‘Casualties‘ below.

Having earned a reputation for themselves as one of the most impressive bands on the evolving Irish metal scene, Call To Arms are simply a band that are hell-bent on delivering a live show that you’re gonna remember. With a selection of anthems that have caused all manner of war stories from the pit, Call To Arms grab you by the jugular and don’t let go until they have finished removing the roof off whatever venue they happen to be laying waste to. With new material in their back pockets and a thirst for the stage, this is a performance that you simply can not avoid!

Trident Events will be hosting this exclusive aftershow party in Dublin’s, Fibber Magees which is located on 80-81 Parnell Street, Dublin 1 on January 7th, 2017. Doors are from 10.30 /11pm with admission only €5 which includes all live performances, drink promos and a late night bone-crushing DJ set.
