THANK YOU! Reactions to new single are great & shows in Hamburg & Prague are sold out, many will sell out shortly. The limited edition of the album is gone by presale in many places... briefly: I am endlessly grateful! I don‘t take it for granted at all. Without you I wouldn‘t be able to do this. THANK YOU & have a safe pre-Christmas season. Love, T

NEW SINGLE "THE RAVEN CHILD“ TO PREMIERE ON RADIOBOB TONIGHT! If you listen to the TOBIAS SAMMET ROCK SHOW on RadioBob today at 21:00 CET (you can also stream online from their website) you can listen to the new single "THE RAVEN CHILD“ taken from the forthcoming AVANTASIA album "MOONGLOW“ (out February 15th). The single will be available as download on Friday 14th. More than 11 minutes long and featuring vocals of Tobias, Hansi Kürsch of Blind Guardian and Jorn Lande, "THE RAVEN CHILD“ is quite an unusual choice for a first single. Tobias comments: "We have never been a typical radio band with two-and-a-half-minutes hit singles, so even though some music industry friends thought we are nuts, it’s not a weird move to go with 'Raven Child‘ if you ask me. The song showcases the variety of Avantasia, many aspects of what defines my sound, songwriting and musical journey. It’s a trip to a dark and fantastic world, with Celtic elements, heavy elements, anthemic vocal lines, Gregorian chants, a canon type choir and I am sure, many of our fan understand and appreciate the song. Yes, it may be a Heavy Radio song and not a Commercial Radio song, but at this point it’s a good start to give long-time Avantasia fans an idea of what to expect if they get the new Avantasia album.’ The album "Moonglow" is out on February 15th, the limited edition artbook double CD is available for presale now, if you want to make sure to get a copy, preorder now! End of March AVANTASIA are gonna set off on the MOONGLOW WORLD TOUR - first dates are sold out, more to sell out shortly!

Avantasia Dec 09, 2018
ABSOLUTELY - it is gonna be great fun! It's such a great honour to be working with such an amazing and influential singer and nice person. There are about 13,438 vocalists desperately trying to train our range, doing theatrical stunts, hold long notes and make big gestures with our hands. Big drama with our voice box dancing around in our throats more or less uncontrollably... Most of us have a weird Italian or German accent. You know where it all comes from? I talked to Michi Kiske about this and of course we were all influenced by Halford and Dickinson, but the one who truely brought the classical theatrical aspect of Metal singing to a new level is GEOFF TATE! After he had entered the picture EVERYTHING WAS SAID! Period! His performance on Moonglow is absolutely amazing. It is an honour to share the stage, spotlight and wine with Mr. Tate. A true gentleman, funny and man, he can sing!!! Speaking on behalf of the Avantasia family - WE CAN'T WAIT TO TAKE MOONGLOW AROUND THE WORLD!

Cheers from London, and the promotion grind goes on. But it‘s all for a wonderful album, so I‘ll endure it. And the press seems to like it, that makes it a lot easier (even though I publicly pretend that I usually don‘t care of course... 😉 have a great weekend!

Cheers from Paris. Thumbs up in the name of Moonglow. By the way - Hamburg is completely sold out, don‘t buy black market tickets. If you are from that area and wanna see the show, come to Osna oder Oberhausen, Berlin or Stockholm... anything... but don‘t feed the black market!!!! Ok, on to the next country - and on it goes!!! T

Sticking out like a sore thumb! 😜 My face muscles are too tired to smile, or maybe it‘s because I am so focused on pressing the right button on this tiny little phone device. Mind: I am not a digital native, I am getting old. 🙂 Promotion madness for MOONGLOW goes on! It seems like the press REALLY likes the album. I don‘t know how, but we might have done something outrageous! 😎💪💪💪
Avantasia Nov 26, 2018
WORK WORK WORK. STOCKHOLM - PROMOTION! Press for Moonglow! It‘s worth it, great album. Great tour ahead. First show sold out, more sold out soon. And everybody seems to love Moonglow! It makes me extremely happy and I wanna pass the compliments to Sascha Paeth without whom I couldn‘t have done this! And to all my companions!!! Good nite everyone, T

Helsinki. The sun is making way for the MOONGLOW! The road is being paved... WORK WORK WORK! Here I go again... defying fatigue. Did I tell you Hamburg is sold out except from a handful of rest tickets, some more will follow to sell out shortly, ticktes for that major arena in Prague are pretty much gone too. You crazy folks know that you put some pressure on the quality of our show, don‘t you?! 😜🤘🤘 have a nice Sunday!
Avantasia Nov 24, 2018
Do I look tired? I AM tired. 🙂 The grinding wheel of promotion and travels. Album number 18 I am doing this for. 10 world tours, 18 albums, 15 promotional tours. And I’m still loving it. Not so much the rat’s tail connected to it 😉 but... the MUSIC!! Music is the driving force. And MOONGLOW is worth every bit of promotion and support. Have a great weekend! Btw. More shows announced next week! :)👍👍👍

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENJO RICHTER! This year 20 years ago we got to know each other, next year 20 years ago we got to work together for the Metal Opera albums. Great times, we were young (I was younger than you, even back then, but... we were all relatively young. Ok, I remember Markus Großkopf was 34 and I recall how astounding it was to me that people THAT old could be THAT childish and funny.) Yes, Alex is funny too, or not, who knows, we should have asked someone getting his Bavarian accent... 😜 it was a great time. I wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Henjo, happiness, health and success and may you always keep that great sense of humour! You are unique! -T
