Review by Agnes:

One of the biggest show of the year has place on December 15th in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in The Flores Theatre, a very important stadium who has been witnessed an important moment on the history of heavy metal music. After two years Avantasia came back to Argentina. This year with the very important pressence of one of the German metal leyends… Michael Kiske, performing with Kai Hansen, Jorn Lande, Oliver Hartmann, Bob Catley, Amanda Somerville and of course the master of this amazing creation… Tobias Sammet!

The band opened with "Twisted Mind” after this one Lande joined with Sammet to make “The Scarecrow”, “Promised Land” and the classic song from the Metal Opera Part 1 “Serpents On Paradise”. The following guest was Bob Catley who made with Tobias “The Story Ain't Over” with an excelent performance of the vocalist of Magnum.

Since the presence of Michael Kiske was anounced in this Avantasia Tour the argentinian audience, as all in the world I believe, was very excited to see what could happen with one of the most important member that Helloween have it. It was like the most terrible earthquake on this world happened when this man, who I never though that my eyes will see it appers on stage to sing one of the best songs of The Metal Opera Part 1… Michael Kiske was on stage singing “Reach Out For The Light”!!!

The following song was “The Tower” also with Kiske… To this point the people was really crazy, it was amazing to see Michael for the first time on stage after so many years. Here is a video of "Avantasia" with Tobias making compliments to Kai and Kiske for Keeper" albums:

Another, and maybe the most amazing moment on the night was to see and listen “Shelter from The Rain” singed by Tobias and Michael, and after this to see in a big hugh with Kai Hansen and the people screaming “Helloween helloween”, this was very very emotional for me and for all the people that saw this two German guys together after more than 10 years on stage. The last songs for that night were “Avantasia”, “Sign of the Cross/Seven Angels” with all the musicians on stage singing all together. Two years ago Tobias Sammet said that maybe he wouldnt came back with Avantasia… This only didnt happened, this time we have the lucky to see a lot of the most great power metal voices ever… This time we have the lucky to see the great Michael Kiske on stage… Do we have this lucky again? Who knows… I hope so!!! This is an amazing clip of "The Tower", perhaps the best performance in this tour? check it out:

Here is "Stargazers":

And the ending with "The Sign Of The Cross/Seven Angels
