Information Avantasia at Große Freiheit 36, Hamburg

Avantasia tour hamburg 2013Avantasia new tour will consist in three different parts, one it will start in April, as headliner indoor tour where they will play around a 3-hour set, then they will play in some festivals later in South America and Asia for late summer.

Open doors at 17:00, show starts at 20:00.

The venue has capacity for 1,600 people. It was sold-out.

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."

Comments about the show

Tobias Sammet commented before the show: "Berlin show was good. Now off to Hamburg! Apparently sold out...? I'll check with tour manager... Well, HH isn't sold out - yet! 43 tickets shy of sold out right now. If u plan to come, be quick! We're ready to rumble, Hamburg!" after the show he said: "At backstage at the Hamburg show... Sold out and what a crowd you were, fantastic!!!"

Brigitte commented about the show: "Kiske sounded very good in 'Stargazers' almost no flu hearable and he seems to enjoy his hometown. Kiske introduced it 'Originally I wanted to skip this one, but i try it'. I didn't hear anything from his flu anymore, even not in 'Seven Angels'. He had his voice again in full control and also no breathing problems that I noticed. Kiske really seemed to enjoy Hamburg very much and he stayed longer on the stage than in any other show. He joked with Amanda in the finishing of the show, he took her hair and put them on his head. Hamburg absolutely ruled.they almost knew all lyrics."
