Nearly 60,000 fans attended in 44 cities, with Trapt frontman Chris Brown commenting, “Make America Rock Again was easily one of the most fun tours we’ve done in years . . . The tens of thousands of fans who came out made this tour what is was — awesome. We are looking forward to doing it again in 2017 and making it an even bigger event!" (The PRP)


  • Former Asking Alexandria frontman Denis Stoff issued a terse explanation of why he quit the band just one day after the group announcing that it was reuniting with original singer Danny Worsnop following Stoff's sudden exit. After the CEO of Asking Alexandria's record label tweeted that "If Denis denies the truth, emails and texts prove everything," Stoff countered, "I left because I can’t be in a touring band at this point in my life. There’s no drama & I don’t want to be a part of it.” (Loudwire)
