Soundwave Organizer AJ Maddah Comments On Avenged Sevenfold's Festival Demands

Band Photo: Avenged Sevenfold (?)

Australia's Soundwave festival organizer AJ Maddah has released a series of statements, through his official Twitter account, discussing Avenged Sevenfold's decision to back out of the festival. The entire statement reads:

"Avenged [Sevenfold] have decided, despite having originally confirmed a mid-afternoon spot, that they are now unwilling to play unless it is night time. At the same time, they are refusing to play at the same time as [Iron] Maiden… In other words, they want 'Maiden to play in the afternoon!

"While Avenged are a massive band, having sold around 8,000 copies of their new album nationally, I won't be able to move Maiden's time slot. I have now reached the point where I can no longer mess around 70 other bands and 180,000 ticket holders to appease this band's nonsense. I have every expectation that they will go back on their agreement and cancel."

What's Next?

come on Shades, only twice???....seriously, you could post what you wrote 100 fvckin times and it wouldn't be even close to too much! ;)

i think promoter was saying that the lil' Vengies won't play at the same TIME as MAIDEN (surely different stage) because they seem to suspect well enough that EVERYONE at that goddamned festival will be at the Irons show...

but its all really just some unnecessary, self absorbed, boi-diva fretting....as i've never met any true earth dog 'maiden fan that "also listens to Avaginal Fvckfold"

the fvcking poseurs, sure....the time proven blue blooded Hellrats, NEVER

personally, i think maiden is pretty overrated. i can only listen to trite lyrics about books that bruce d***inson barely read for so long. they are like Judas Preist only with lamer cheesier guitars, more repetetive music, and cornier clothes. leather and studs are gay supposedly but nobody cares about painted on acidwashed jeans and lil itty bitty tshirts from baby gap. a7x is sweet. maiden is so lame by todays standards but im sure they were the shxt in 1874 when they came out. too bad all their fans havent switched to motorhead yet. the day that almost easy is lamer than bring your daughter to the slaughter is the day that i vomit into my own shoe and dump it on my own head. drop it maidens. let the dinosaurs sleep. portnoy included.

Crawford, seriously? I didn't mind A7X's earlier stuff, and I am a maiden fan. But slamming them to that level is stupid.

If Maiden were never around, A7X (and most of today's heavy music) would not exist. How can you say sh** about painted on jeans when that is all A7X wears?

You are almost as douchey as A7X themselves.

i absoloutly f***ing love sevenfold and if you like them as much as me you will be pleased to hear they said they will have a headline tour in aus sometime in 11 to give the fans what they deserve
honnestly i love maiden and a7x and them at the same time was crazy for me to decide and i understand y they pulled out even though it was somewhat of a dog act but they has a 1 hour set which started 20 mins after maiden which no one would leave maiden for really since the fanbase is simmilar so perhaps in retrospect they shouldnt have commited to comming at all if they new maiden where headlining

Before organizers and bands commit to a tour, both parties should also agree at the same time that they concur on who goes on when.....I don't like A7X either, but it's not just there fault. ...I think there is a little more to this story

Get used to it. You have no appreciation for good music at all, if you think A7X is talentles"

as for post #26; its actually very simple. Just look at the event poster (you can find it through a google search) Avenged CONFIRMED to perform in the 10th from last spot, with 9 bands performing after them. They didnt realize that would put them on stage in the late afternoon, early evening.

Well, I'm playing devils advocate here, just because a festival poster is printed and made, doesn't necessarily say that both parties agreed. ...I mean its suppose to, but how do we know the organizer changed there minds after a deal was made and put a band where they wanted....only way we know is to look at the agreement that was signed and dated by each side. ...a festival poster doesn't necessarily say that's what was agreed upon no?...again its suppose to, but I m not seeing clear evidence that this is all on A7X. ...what maddah could do or A7X is to put the agreement on one of there websites, with the date of the agreement, the signatures and what spot was agreed upon. .......
Im sure I'm looking into this way over board but I got nothing better else to do. ..off night, Xmas shopping done and no intriguing games to watch. ...

#28 doesnt notice this festival is not in America, but in Austrailia. And in the land of AUS, Iron Maiden will be a bigger draw no matter how many times A7X go #1 in America.

I'm so sick of hearing about how album sales make a band talented. Hey guess what A7X fans, Biebers album has sold way more copies than Nightmare, which by your logic means he is more talented. Its like when Weinman from DEP commented on how Disturbed practiced posing during rehearsals and Dan Donegans response was basically "If you sold as much albums as us you'd understand" to be honest usually if a band sells a lot of albums it means they are a boring mainstream copy band that gets worse with each passing release and the majority of their listeners/fans are way behind the curve and arn't aware enough to know bands like A7X suck d*** compared to bands like Between the Buried and Me, Dillinger Escape Plan, Opeth, Every Time I Die, etc...

I think RTB has the right idea with post 29. I'm not necessarily saying Avenged are completely guiltless, but I doubt it's as black and white as this organizer is making it out to be and may be more the result of a communication breakdown than anything.

On another note, It's a bit confusing to me when he says "At the same time, they are refusing to play at the same time as [Iron] Maiden… In other words, they want Maiden to play in the afternoon!" Aren't Maiden already playing in the afternoon anyway?

Also, "Yeah" just shut the hell up already. You haven't had anything remotely intelligent to say on this whole thread.

"Ill send out as much positive energy i can so the the A7X bus crashes killing them all."

bahahahahahahaha GOLD branded u can be critical as f*** sometimes but u make me larf

sevenfold make me cringe what a bunch of f***wits, i've givin their albums a chance and the whiny vocals and gay assed choruses make me a saaaad panda. i understand that they are worried no one will see their set while maiden is playing but i cant think of a better band to sacrifice. last soundwave i went to alice in chains were playing same time as lamb of god now THAT was a difficult decision.

"To become mega stars, you must be big in the US."

Metallica became famous in "EUROPE" before America. Rammstein are mega stars in "EUROPE" and yet they have barely scratched the surface in America. Guess you think if any bands are not big in any place but America they are nobodies!!

Hey, anyone arguing with "Yeah" is just pissing into a sea of piss - or more appropriately dropping a dook in a head already full of it.

He doesn't know who Between the Buried and Me, Dillinger Escape Plan or Opeth are.

And people wonder why we despise the majority of a7x fans -.-
