Leave the sweater at home when you go see Avenged Sevenfold on Tuesday. It might get hot inside the arena.

Puffs, bursts and fountains of flame are all over the hard rock band's stage during its “Hail to the King” tour, which stops at CenturyLink Center Omaha.

“Flames rose from the bottom of the stage and were timed to coincide with the band's riffs, and the blazes were so bountiful that if a fire were to erupt on stage, it would be difficult to tell whether it was a part of the show,” read a review by the Detroit News.

Avenged Sevenfold's fiery tour comes on the heels of “Hail to the King,” the band's chart-topping metal album, which was the biggest metal album in more than a year.

Songs on “Hail to the King” are more arena-friendly, the band has said, and should be perfect for crowd participation, which they said is inspired by bands such as Metallica, Black Sabbath and AC/DC.

“You hear 'Back in Black' come on the PA when you're waiting backstage and you hear 10,000 people singing along,” guitarist Zacky Vengeance told the Orlando Sentinel. “There's not much to it; it's just a simple song, but sometimes that simplicity is what connects with fans around the world.”
