Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd coming to Orlando for Carnival of Madness Tour
You may have read that the tour was coming to the St. Pete Times Forum on July 20, but it was not to be. If you want to see them, you'll have to drive up I-4.
Shinedown, above, Chevelle and 10 Years are the other three headliners. Personally, we're partial to Chevelle (The Clincher shreds!), but good lord, has Shinedown suddenly become insanely popular, with a crazy-rabid fan base. The Jacksonville hard rock foursome recently made a pit stop in Tampa en route to the VH1 Best Cruise Ever, and fans were willing to do fully clothed cannonballs in order to get their attention aboard the boat.
"But at least Kenny Chesney will be there, yes?" you ask. Look, that was the Sun City Carnival Tour, and we're going to go ahead and stop you right there. Can we all agree that the world doesn't need another tour with the word "Carnival" in the title? Especially one featuring Puddle of Mudd? Thank you.
