Information Unisonic at Monsters Of Rock Brazil, Arena Anhembi, São Paulo 2015

Monsters of Rock Brazil Festival on April 25th and 26th, 2015. Unisonic played on 26th.

Unisonic's guitarist cannot play Mandy Meyer at Monsters Of Rock Festival so Edguy's bassist Tobias Exxel will replace him. Here is the statement published at Edguy's facebook:

"Bassist Tobias "Eggi" Exxel will replace guitarist Mandy Meyer during UNISONIC´s performance at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Brazil, April 26th, sharing the stage with bands like Ozzy, Judas Priest and Kiss. Meyer has to sit out the band´s festival performance due to a prior commitment for a US tour with Swiss rockers KROKUS.

Says Unisonic´s drummer Kosta Zafiriou: "If a band consists of members with such wide activities as UNISONIC does, of course we'll run into scheduling problems sooner or later. We know this and we've already had to decline interesting offers in the past. But receiving an offer to play the Monsters Of Rock festival in Sao Paulo in front of 50,000 crazy Brazilian fans, sharing the stage with bands like OZZY OSBOURNE, JUDAS PRIEST and KISS, is something you can't turn down as a musician.

Eggi is not only a great guy, he´s also an excellent guitar player. When we were considering who could replace Mandy for this show, Eggi´s name came up instantly. We´re happy to fill this gap with a friend!"

Dennis Ward commented to Terra: "We will probably play our heavier stuff."

Other bands are Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Manowar, Black Veil Brides, Accept, Rival Sons, Yngwie Malmsteen, Primal Fear and Steel Panther.

Michael Kiske about Monsters Of Rock Festival 2015 Brazil

Michael Kiske commented about it: "I love playing in Brasil, the people have a certain temper, have a certain passion towards this music. In some other countries you hardly search for it. It is very difficult to have a bad concert there. Just carry the whole show by their emotions…we are not doing many live playing this years and there was not a lot since December last year.
