I have spent the night at the hospital, and I'm still in a great deal of pain. I am truly sorry that I cannot honor my commitment towards Avantasia tonight, and I hope for your understanding. Canceling a show is not something that is easy for me, and I hope that I will be able to take the stage again real soon."

Comments about the show

Tobias Sammet commented: "Well, and we're about to finish the AVANTASIA season: next weekend Rock Of Ages, Seebronn, Germany! See U all there except Ronnie & Olli :(" and later: "Looking forward to Rock Of Ages next weekend! As said, Ronnie & Olli won't be there, but we'll play 2hrs at least. Sweet dreams! :)"

Brigitte of Kiske Official Fanclub commented: "One of the first surprises was, that Tobi sang alone 'Invoke the Machine'. Arne did his job on the 2nd guitar quite good, but a few strange guitar things were hearable here and there. Bob had a few issues with his vocal parts. One of the funny things was that Tobi and Michi opened a present for Tobi on stage which included several items, also a personal letter to Tobi. The audience were a little tired for some time and several free spaces were there, but the remaining audiences got quite loud and enthusiastic in the end. The band was surprised about it. Kiske was in a very good vocal shape."
