Information Avantasia at Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen

Avantasia Oberhausen Turbinenhalle 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 20:30.

The venue has capacity for 3,500 people. 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: "Ready for Oberhausen tonight! Over 3000 tickets sold! We're about to sell out! I mean, Oberhausen show, not commercially in general... Just to clarify, tourmanager says there ARE tickets left, if you wanna come tonite and haven't got one! :) yet we'll be close to/ sold out! Okay, will get my shit together now. 8:30 show starts. See you all later, Oberhausen, my hausen!" Amanda Somerville published: "Hey, Somervillains! I'm ready for the Avantasia show in Oberhausen tonight... and always feeling loved by our crew."

Jasmin commented about the show: "That was the most epic evening I've ever had! Avantasia." Brigitte said about the show: "It was a very good show and the audience again sang most of the lyrics with the band. But the concert hall has a big problem, no fresh air is circulating there and Tobi several times talked about it and that they still play the whole show despite this not so good circumstances. My complete clothes were wet after the show and I don't want to know how it is in summer. I got to know from Basti that 'Breaking Away' was not planned and still in the hotel they said that they won't play it. But when they saw the audience and the reactions, it was a spontanious decission to play it."
