Information Avantasia at HSBC Hall, Brazil 2013

Tobias Sammet Avantasia 2013 Sao Paulo Brazil Mystery of TimeAvantasia new tour consist in three different parts, one it started in April, as headliner indoor tour where they played around a 3-hour set, then they played in some festivals later in South America and Asia for late summer.

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."

The line-up in the South American tour or that leg of the tour will be different because Ronnie Atkins is busy with Pretty Maids, so he has not time to do it. His songs will be played by Rettke and Martin I guess.

The venue is HSBC Brasil. It's a place with capacity for 4.800 people. Sold-out.
