Verifying Yahoo.com’s rating as the #2 “Best Summer Tour of 2012”, the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL kicked off this weekend to a record-breaking start—over 26,000 heavy metal headbangers attended the tour kick-off in San Bernardino on Saturday, July 30th alone! That is over 4,000 more attendees than the previous record. Overall during the entire first two days, the festival brought 42,000 fans together to celebrate heavy metal, making this year the biggest yet for the world’s largest touring heavy music festival. Check out the first official tour update now at the official YouTube page, hosted by 2012 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL correspondent Mistress Juliya.

“After the first two dates of Mayhem, we have set an all-time attendance record at our first show in San Bernardino (26,150) and a record attendance at day two in San Francisco (15,850),” confirms ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL co-creator John Reese. “Mayhem is off to a rip roaring start and we look forward to a great year with an awesome lineup of artists.”

“What a sick show to kick off Mayhem 2012! I counted 13 pits during Indians!!! SoCal always brings it,” states ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian. “If this is any indication of how this tour is going to be, it's going to be a great summer!”

"We've been looking forward and counting down to Mayhem for a while now, especially since we've wanted to be a part of the tour for the past few years,” states THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA vocalist Mike Hranica. “The tour kick-off was great and I'm very excited to finally be playing Mayhem rather than just talking about it!”

“The first day of Mayhem was awesome,” adds WHITECHAPEL guitarist Alex Wade. “It feels great to be on this amazing tour again and to see old friends and make new ones.”
