The heavy metal band has a surprise for select Avenged Sevenfold NFT holders. To be exact, fans who have the band’s Into The Ether NFT will be getting lifetime meet-and-greet rights.
New Utility for Avenged Sevenfold NFT Holders
The iconic metallers released 100 exclusive tokens back in May, with 7% having the attribute “gold eyes.” Taking to Instagram, the band announced that there’s a new utility for Into The Ether NFTs with the gold eyes attribute. The seven tokens will unlock special access at future events. Avenged Sevenfold adds, “ “If you have ‘gold eyes’ you get into the meet and greet [at] any show you go to, forever.”
Frontman M. Shadows shared that they are just getting started using NFTs as a means to elevate fan experiences. He said “ NFT grants you access into certain things, so what I want to eventually create – and we’re gonna create very soon – is a token that allows you to get no line into shows, free merchandise, free tickets for life, meet-and-greets whenever you want at the live setting. So all these attributes and traits are going to equal certain real-world utility.”
The band takes pride in being one of the first bands to understand and utilize NFTs fully. Apart from having an NFT Collection, they also bought LAND at The Sandbox.
