This past Wednesday Sweden's Avatar performed at The Machine Shop for a sold-out crowd while on their Avatar Country Tour which also included the Hellzapoppin' Circus Sideshow.

I think it's safe to say that last night was my 6th time (at least) seeing Avatar and it was by far, their best performance.  From the second the band hit the stage, fans were going nuts. There was a special energy in the room that's for sure.

Avatar is currently on tour in support of their new album Avatar Country which came out back in January.

Minty of Mintypics took some amazing photos that give a glimpse of the Avatar Country Tour.
