The Chilean webzine Powermetal.cl announced two more shows in the new tour. Two shows in Chile. Here is the statement: "What it seems a dream, a few years ago, finally is a reality. The legendary vocalist of Helloween, Michael Kiske will come for the first time to Chile and he will play live with his new band Unisonic, accompanied for his friend Kai Hansen, leader of Gamma Ray, who shared with him the glory days in Helloween.

Unisonic will get the classic duet of Keeper Of The Seven Keys albums, and they will play on May 16th at Teatro Teletón and on May 14th at Statix Rock & Soccer in Antofagasta. They will not only play stuff of this debut album Unisonic (out in March), they will also play some tracks recorded in their Helloween years!

But Unisonic will not come alone, because they come with the hardrock swiss stars Gotthard as "very special guests". Now with the new vocalist Nic Maeder after the passing of Steve Lee.

We will inform about the ticket prizes which will be sold via Ticketmaster and without charge in RockMusic (Eurocentro and Portal Lyon), Giros Rock (Eurocentro), The Goat (Portal Lyon), Voz Propia (Portal Lyon), Equinoxio (Antofagasta) and Black Box (Viña del Mar)."

Unisonic La Batuta Santiago de Chile 2012

Review by Benizha2011

It is a small place but with very good sound quality. The show was awesome. They only played 3 Helloween songs 'I'm Alive', 'A Little Time' and 'I Want Out'. They did not play 'Future World' and 'March Of Time'. A hope they play all these songs today at teatro Caupolican.

They playey also 2 of my favorite Unisonic songs 'King For A Day' and 'Over The Rainbow'. I was afraid they would not play the last one because it is a bonus track but it was part of the setlist and i am very happy for that.

Pictures

There are a few places with good pictures, for example Hellcast Webzine did a lot and there are really great stuff with good lightning (which is not easy). Also the guys of Powermetal.cl did a lot of pictures and also a huge and interesting review about this show, check it here. Rockerio.cl did a big photo album with intersting pictures, check it here.
