"Avenged Sevenfold delivered a performance that really summed up the family vibe of the evening’s fare. With a set featuring material from the band’s latest record Nightmare, as well as choice tracks from the previous four albums, A7X entertained a crowd which had mostly turned out to see them. For all the fancy stage set-up, with the pyrotechnic flames and explosions, the most memorable moment by far came when the band spoke in memory of their late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan: with a giant flag of The Rev unfurled across the entire back of the Molson stage, a sea of mobile phones and lighters were raised around Molson Amphitheatre for a moving tribute which led into “Welcome To The Family”.
