The Premium Shows feature in GHTV include playable live concert footage, new GHTV music videos, and more and are unlocked by completing various in-game challengers. Completion of the Premium Shows will give gamers guitar upgrades, player cards, note highways, and other unlocks – some of which are exclusive to specific premium shows.
The three Avenged Sevenfold tracks will feature concert footage recorded during their headline performance at England’s Download Festival in front of 70,000 fans. Fans who pre-order Guitar Hero Live will get access to the bonus content including the Avenged Sevenfold premium show and a custom note highway just for starters.
Guitar Hero Live will be available October 20, 2015 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U, and also Apple TV and iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch this fall.
