The third annual CARNIVAL OF MADNESS TOUR fueled by Monster Energy will make its roaring return tonight (7/31) with rock titans EVANESCENCE, CHEVELLE, HALESTORM, CAVO and NEW MEDICINE. Kicking off tonight in Springfield, IL, the 2012 trek will hit major cities across the U.S. including Boston, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, and Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, the show originally set for this Saturday, August 4 at Harrah’s Chester Downs in Chester, PA will instead take place as an encore performance at Atlantic City’s House of Blues (see full itinerary below).

Tickets for this surprise second show in Atlantic City are available now via Ticketmaster, House of Blues AC box office or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. CARNIVAL OF MADNESS organizers are also offering special $15 tickets to the encore performance for the fans already attending Friday’s (8/3) show. To take advantage of this deal for back-to-back nights with rock’s biggest names, patrons must present their email confirmation or ticket stub at the House of Blues AC box office. For ticketholders to the Chester, PA show that are now unable to attend the show at the new venue, full refunds are available at point of purchase. For more information on purchasing tickets, visit

“We’re really looking forward to the Carnival of Madness tour this summer,” says EVANESCENCE front woman AMY LEE about the tour. “We love Chevelle and haven’t hit the road together in years, and I’m really stoked to finally be playing some shows with Halestorm. Naturally I’m a fan of strong women in music and Lzzy’s voice is spectacular.”
