If there's anything in North America - meaning Mexico and Canada as well, I might have to make it happen.

I'm going to say the same for Europe. I couldn't see them fully in 2008 because of shitty errors made by the Sweden Rock festival organisers (I saw about five songs though, and photographed three from the front), so I do need to seem them play a full show.



Wacken are saying this will be their only festival appearance worldwide all year, so I expect I'll have to travel to somewhere to see them play a theatre date as I doubt they'll come to London, but whatever.

"World" tour of indoor venues in December 2010!

Tobi: "There has always been the desire to do it again, but of course there is always a risk. It requires a huge amount of time and energy, there are no figures based on experience, because I don't anybody who has taken an allstar Metal Opera on the road to play indoor venues. The stage production is abnormally expensive and you must not forget the many people who are involved and who come from different parts of the world. It requires a good timing. At some point we sat together and checked if and how we could possibly do it once again and we soon found out, that December 2010 would be the right period to do a real tour. I admit that four weeks are not really a long time frame, but it's better to do a short tour than no tour at all. And if we hadn't taken that chance, it would have never happened because we will come with a lot of musicians and vocalists and it's a nightmare to mind all our individual schedules with our main bands."

Dates to be announced soon on tobiassammet.com

Avantasia US Tour

AVANTASIA, the project led by EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet, will embark on a four-tour in December 2010. In addition, AVANTASIA has been confirmed for next year's edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, which takes place annually in the small town of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany.

"It's gonna be a once-in-a-lifetime affair!" said Sammet when the all-star project first set off on a world tour a few years ago. And although it seemed impossible to bring the project onto the stage after an extensive preparatory time, AVANTASIA headlined some of the biggest summer festivals in 2008. To this day, many fans recall the AVANTASIA live shows as magical, once-in-a-lifetime concert experiences.

Commented Sammet: "There has always been the desire to do it again, but, of course, there is always a risk. It requires a huge amount of time and energy; there are no figures based on experience, because I don't know anybody who has taken an all-star metal opera on the road to play indoor venues. The stage production is abnormally expensive and you must not forget the many people who are involved and who come from different parts of the world. It requires a good timing.

"At some point we sat together and checked if and how we could possibly do it once again and we soon found out that December 2010 would be the right period to do a real tour.

"I admit that four weeks [is] not really a long time frame, but it's better to do a short tour than no tour at all. And if we hadn't taken that chance, it would have never happened because we will come with a lot of musicians and vocalists and it's a nightmare to mind all our individual schedules with our main bands."

Unlike AVANTASIA's festival tour of 2008, the band's upcoming dates will be full-fledged headlining performances, with the group performing longer sets than has been the case in the past.

"It was great to play Wacken and Sweden Rock Festival, but playing a festival you only have so much time," explained Sammet. "You play ten songs and people have a party and everybody's got fun. But doing our own tour, we can really create an atmosphere, we can play a lot longer and take people on a journey through the history of AVANTASIA. We can actually take people to the world of AVANTASIA itself.

"Fans can expect a bombastic concert experience.

"Many so-called 'metal operas' have been released on albums recently, but AVANTASIA will bring it on stage and take fans around the globe with them.

"You can't compare a normal band to what we are going to do. If all your favourite singers appear on one stage at the same night to take you on a musical journey, then this isn't just great, it's über-great!"

Plus, it says nothing about it being a strictly US tour.

GOD DAMMIT. That was one helluva false alarm, don't ever do that again, my heart can't take it.

It will probably not play any dates in America, much to my dismay.

Hence the ironic speech marks around "world" in my post. I don't think they'll do North America either. We could be wrong though. Dates soon!

Yeah, I'm sensing:

Europe (maybe a half-dozen countries)
South America (maybe 5 shows)
Japan (1-2 shows)


Maybe Australia, Maybe North America, in which case it will probably just be Mexico, seriously diminishing my chances of making it happen. I doubt there will be more than 15 dates total. I really, really hope I'm wrong. More than I've ever hoped for anything. We'll see.
