2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards Wrap Up

Epiphone and Revolver hosted the 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards at Webster Hall in New York City on Tuesday, December 13. The event was a massive success, with tickets totally sold out, a packed Black Carpet, and plenty of surprises, including appearances by The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus and Orange Is the New Black‘s Jessica Pimentel.

Co-hosted by co-headliner Dave Mustaine of Megadeth and SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin, the 2016 Epiphone RMAs included performances by Megadeth and Anthrax, along with Zakk WyldeLacuna Coil, Stitched Up Heart, and more. A touching, poignant, and thoroughly rock ‘n’ roll “Fallen Heroes” jam also took place, commemorating the metal icons that we recently lost.

Zakk Wylde said it best — “The RMAs is always a great night to celebrate the entire rock community. I’m thankful to be part of it and look forward to it every year.”

The event was not just about the high-octane performances, either.

The fan-voted awards were the centerpiece of the ceremony. The full list of winners, including the newly-created Innovator Award, is below.
