Sully Erna & Co. will be joined on the road by Sevendust. Both bands are looking forward to the outing – and they have the quotes to prove it.

“I haven’t been this excited about a tour like Godsmack/Sevendust since we toured with Metallica,” Erna says. “This is how concerts should be, two bands that love and complement each other the way fans want it! This will be a MUST SEE concert! Don’t miss it!”

Sevendust’s Clint Lowery adds, “We have a lot of history with Godsmack personally and musically and it’s going to be an incredible experience touring with them. We came up together on the music scene and it will be an honor to share the stage with them again and give fans their money’s worth. I can’t think of a better way or a better band to start this touring cycle with. Get ready!!”
