The CARNIVAL OF MADNESS tour, powered by Monster Energy, has been announced!

Sure to be known as the premier rock tour of 2013, the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS--sponsored by Monster Energy--returns this summer with multi-Platinum rock band SHINEDOWN, along with PAPA ROACH, SKILLET, IN THIS MOMENT, and WE AS HUMAN.  The tour commences  in Cleveland, OH on Tuesday, August 13.  Go to for specific on-sale date and ticket information, and see below for the first batch of shows.  More will be announced in the coming weeks.

VIP ticket pre-sales for these shows are now available to the “Shinedown Nation,” SHINEDOWN’s exclusive fan club. For more information about VIP pre-sale packages and “Shinedown Nation” membership, please visit the band’s official website,

SHINEDOWN makes their triumphant return to the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS after headlining the 2010 inaugural launch, with a lineup that also included Sevendust, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, and 10 Years.  The first CARNIVAL OF MADNESS proved to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, heralded as a Top 50 tour by Pollstar. Last year’s trek featured Evanescence, Chevelle, Halestorm, and New Medicine.
