    ‘Legend’-ary concert coming to Tucson

    ‘Thrash and Burn’ your way to sweet prizes
    Kicking off July 24 is the “”Thrash and Burn Tour,”” featuring DevilDriver, Emmure, Despised Icon, and more. Accompanying the tour is the “”Twit and Burn”” contest, a week-to-week scavenger hunt in which fans can win prizes of epic proportions all because they took the time to solve the clues laid out for them on YouTube.
