Win tickets to ‘Carnival of Madness’ with Shinedown, Skillet

Based on this fan-filmed video from the Carnival of Madness tour, tomorrow night’s show at CenturyLink Arena will be … explosive.

If that’s your kind of party — and you dig headliners Shinedown and Skillet — then I have a few tickets you might be interested in snagging.

I have four pairs of tickets to give away. Here’s how to make a pair yours.

Between now and noon Sept. 17, correctly answer this question: What Lynyrd Skynyrd song did Shinedown cover on its 2003 debut album? Email the answer to with your first and last name, which will be left at will call if you win. To qualify for the contest, you must type Wrestlemania” in the subject line. One entry per person, please. Using a random-number generator, I’ll pick four correct emails then respond with the good news during the lunch hour.

Remember, if you aren’t lucky enough to win, you can still buy tickets.
