Summer's Biggest Rock Tours Meet in Texas; Features Emmure & Close Your Eyes

July 19, 2011 - They say "everything's bigger in Texas" - this summer, the infamous saying couldn't hold more truth.  Coming together in the southern state, The ALL STARS Tour and SCREAM THE PRAYER Tour are combining into one ultimate concert event by putting on three days of absolute rock mayhem in what may actually be the biggest thing to hit Texas.  Featuring the phenomenal bands from each tour, EMMURE and CLOSE YOUR EYES, you'd have to be living under a rock if this one was missed.

Currently headlining the already enormous ALL STARS Tour, EMMURE is fresh off the heels of this year's wildly successful Speaker of the Dead album.  The entire tour runs July 21st through August, combining Texas dates July 22rd through July 24th with the current SCREAM THE PRAYER Tour featuring CLOSE YOUR EYES.  CLOSE YOUR EYES, now on the SCREAM THE PRAYER Tour which took off today, will be heading to the studio shortly after their run commences.

Catch this special mega-tour on the following dates only.  The rest of each of the ALL STARS and SCREAM THE PRAYER tour dates, both continuing throughout the summer, can be seen below:
