Disturbed and Godsmack will headline this summer's edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour, which will kick off on July 9th in San Bernardino, California and end five weeks later on August 14th in West Palm Beach, Florida. Also scheduled to appear are Megadeth, Machine Head, In Flames, Trivium, Suicide Silence and Unearth, with others to be announced for a total of 13 acts.
•Disturbed, Godsmack and Megadeth will all appear on the main stage, with Machine Head, Trivium and In Flames taking turns as the main stage opening act.
•With the concert industry in a slump lately, Godsmack frontman Sully Erna told us why he hopes people will continue to come to live shows: "Part of it really is about the fans. We need to get people remotivated again to get off their asses and shut their computers off for an hour or two every night and come to live shows. There's nothing like seeing your breath in the air, man, and being at an event. You've got to be there to feel what you feel through that experience. Yeah, you can buy it on DVD or you can catch it on TV at times, but it's nothing like being at a live event."
•Additional festival activities will include playing the newest video games, attending autograph signing sessions and the usual assortment of vendors.
•Last year's installment of the tour featured Korn, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Atreyu and more.
•Full details of this year's tour will be made available on Monday, January 31st.
