California metal group Avenged Sevenfold will headline an April 19 show at the MTS Centre.
The Winnipeg concert is part of the Shepherd of the Fire Tour that will make 20 stops on its North American tour. The tour is supporting their 2013 release Hail to the King, which earned the band three Loudwire Music Awards, including Best Rock Band and Best Rock Song of 2013.
Fellow Americans Hellyeah are the opening act.
The downtown arena will be configured in its theatre setup for the show. Tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster on Friday at 10 a.m., and range in price from $34.50 to $59.50, plus fees.
