Uproar Festival to rock the Comcast Center in August

, Staff

Led by headliners Avenged Sevenfold and featuring Three Days Grace and Seether, the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival will hit amphitheaters across the country this summer. The touring festival will stop at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sunday, August 28. Tickets for the day-long event, which range in price from $19.25 to $79.25, are on sale now through Live Nation. There are also several VIP ticket packages available.

The Uproar Festival will also feature sets from Bullet For My Valentine, Escape The Fate, Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective. More acts will be added over the coming weeks. In addition to all the music, the festival will offer attendees the opportunity to meet performing bands at autograph sessions through the day, as well as a variety of other activities and venders.

“In the slightest chance that the Mayan calendar is right, and the world is ending in 2012, then this could technically be the last big rock tour in the history of human existence,” joked Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace in a press release.

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Uproar festival ticket sales will benefit Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. This is the second year the tour will partner with Child Find of America, after  raising more than $40,000 for the cause, as well as awareness and publicity for the group last year.

The Uproar Festival, which is organized by the same group that produces the Mayhem Festival tour and Taste of Chaos Tour, is entering its sophomore year. Last year’s lineup featured main stage acts Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour and Halestorm.
