Avantasia 2013 tour Stadthalle Lichtenfels GermanyAvantasia 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. Around 3,000 people attended.

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: "Tonite: final show in April: LICHTENFELS has always been an amazing crowd for us in the past, so: Let's go!" and after the show he said: "Good morning, Lichtenfels was great, so was the whole tour so far! Now back home to recover!"

Brigitte commented about the show: "It was again very crowded, maybe not sold out, but a lot of people and the concert hall, it was again very hot. The audience was a little less enthusiastic like Hamburg or Oberhausen, but still really good. A strange thing about Kiske, he didn't sing on 'Farewell', and Tobi sang his part for the first time in this tour. He also made a strange very low sounding part in 'Shelter From The Rain'. No idea what happened, he really sounded very good in all other songs."
