Something tells me Mike Portnoy left a bad taste in Avenged Sevenfold’s collective mouth.
Shortly after Portnoy’s departure from Adrenaline Mob, the band’s announced that Mike’s other former band, Avenged Sevenfold, tapped them for work.
Adrenaline Mob will be the opening act for Avenged on July 16 at La Crosse Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Also on the bill is Fight or Flight, a band boast Disturbed’s guitarist and drummer.
Adrenaline Mob plan to use a fill-in drummer for the Avenged gig.
To me, Avenged offering Adrenaline Mob this opportunity is basically them saying “Fuck you” to Portnoy.
Yes, some would argue I am biased against Mike. But why else would they offer a band like Adrenaline Mob an opening slot?
