The venue has capacity for 5,000 people. It were around 4000.

Tobias: "I wanna put on the biggest thing you have ever seen, I wanna bring more vocalists, play longer shows, and just make it a giant Rock Opera. Due to embracing all of the different eras and history of AVANTASIA these shows will have an extended playing time, and the whole evening will be dedicated to Avantasia with no support acts. The stage designer has just showed me his stage and light design, and it looks absolutely killer. It will be huge."

Gotta get my shit together and do some warm-up exercises to get the voice going! All good!!!... What can I say?! Great crowd yesterday, thank you!!!! And now heading for Berlin! Let's go!"

Fattima Stevens commented about the show: "Very impresive show. I didn't know it would be so long, I'm terrible tired ha! Thanks Tobias for coming back on tour." Brigitte said about the show: "Avantasia rocked fulda despite thad kiske had a terrible flu. I could heard it a little in 'seven angels', he had problems with breathing. I was really in the middle of the crowd and it was almost sol out and for German audience, it was really good as well. Tobi told that there several available tickets for berlin and i someone has time, they should travel there. He also said, Berlin and heavy metal will never come together. Oliver Hartmann and Amanda Somerville came to the merchandise area and I got some signatures." Markus Aragones commented: "Great show tonight! Thanks for years of strong emotions during 'Farewell', 'Shelter From The Rain', 'The Seven Angels', 'Breaking Away'."
