It was a little wet and rainy in Auburn throughout the day but some of us welcomed the cooler weather in anticipation of the shows we will be playing in the hot and humid southern part of the US. The fans didn't seem to mind the overcast and wet day either. Joining us for the first time today was In Flames who we were very excited to see. They will be with us on the rest of the tour.
Tickets are available at the door for tomorrow's show in Boise, Idaho. They are $30-$60 and the doors open at 12:30pm. Head over to our Event Page for more details.

Boise are you ready for another round of Mayhem?!? We will see you tomorrow.
We rolled into the San Francisco Area for the second show of the tour and were joined by Megadeth who will be with us on the rest of the tour. This venue is one of the coolest and most unique amphitheaters to play at. Megadeth showed up back from Europe and all the fans showed us some Bay Area excitement. Today was also hometown shows for All Shall Perish, Testament, and Machine Head. They tore it up so hard on stage that the production office backstage was rumbling really crazy.
Doors open at 1:15pm and tickets are available at the door for $25-$60. You can also buy tickets ONLINE. Set times can be found Here. Tomorrow is going to be Dethklok's one and Only performance on Mayhem this summer and they will be going on stage after Disturbed and Godsmack. More details after the jump
