The Avenged Sevenfold Tour was a concert tour by heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold, taking place between 2007 and 2009, in support of their self-titled album. It was also the band's last tour with drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan who died on December 28, 2009.

The tour began on October 29, 2007, with a North American leg, not long after the band just finished a last UK leg for their last tour, in support of City of Evil. The tour ended on August 2, 2009, where the band performed their last show of the tour at the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, England. This was the band's last ever performance with drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan who died on December 28, 2009.

During the band's North American leg of autumn 2008, after one show on September 6, 2008, vocalist M. Shadows found difficulties to sing, and flew to see his doctor, cancelling the Baltimore show the next day. The whole co-headlining tour with Buckcherry was then cancelled due to Shadows' case of vocal fatigue. The band resumed the tour after Shadows took some rest, with a short Japanese leg starting on October 15, 2008, and then on November 4, 2008, the band rescheduled their cancelled North American Leg and played through November and December a co-headlining tour with Buckcherry and support acts Shinedown and Saving Abel, as a make-up for the cancelled tour.

The summer leg 2008 was as an opening act for Iron Maiden. During the tour, the band also played 3 dates in June 2009, in support of Metallica, right at the outbreak of the swine flu, although the dates were not cancelled and performed as planned.

During the band's headlining of the North American Taste of Chaos Tour 2008, they recorded their April 10, 2008 performance, for their first live DVD, entitled Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough, which was a bundle of a live DVD, and a CD of b-sides and unreleased tracks from the self-titled promoted album.

On April 16, 2009, former Guns N' Roses and current Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash joined the band on stage to play a cover of the classic Guns N' Roses song "It's So Easy".
