Moonglow World Tour - Kaufbeuren, Hamburg & Prague sold out! Few tickets available for Ludwigsburg, next to stage. Good news if you wanna see the show at Ludwigsburg‘s Arena - the promoter managed to make some more seats available! Be quick, while supplies last (eventim & metaltix)
Avantasia Feb 20, 2019
In case you wanna read about MOONGLOW! More cover features to come! Insane these days, never had that before in such dimension. It seems like after all those years people finally begin to like Avantasia with MOONGLOW! ;) THANK YOU ALL!

THE BASS PLAYER! He may have only four strings and usually while everybody in the band has a name, he is mostly referred to as "the bass player". In every band! Usually bass "players" are in the band because they wanna be in the music business too and be taken seriously. Hang with the band, etc. As a sound guy you can ruin the sound, as a record company guy you have to be able to count and as a music journalist, well, read above... (the "taken seriously" bit!) In brief words: Usually when you start a band there is one guy who's got a station wagon and a drivers license in your village and it's "give him a bass and let's simply turn down the high end!" NOT SO OUR BASS PLAYER FOR THE TOUR! He CAN play bass, he knows exactly which note each open string emits. EACH ONE! ALL FOUR! Back and fourth! Seriously, we have a great bass player and while I always talk about Geoff Tate and Jorn, Bob, Ronnie, Eric etc joining the tour (even Felix gets mentioned), it feels like our bass player gets drowned in oblivion at times. Shame on all of us! He is one of a kind as a bass player (well, overall I'd say!). He is a vegetarian, but other than that quite okay. He can play slow and fast, and ladies, he can play deep! He is the only one in the band that could scare fish by tickling his instrument in front of a tank (ironically he is the only one in the band that fish don't have to be afraid of). He is a great bass player and we all can't wait to hit the road with him! Bass players are needed in Heavy Metal! And if they are as great as our very own bass player, they actually contribute to the soundscape. He does. I am proud to work with the best of the best! He is lunatic and he plays like one. And he grooves! And he rocks! And he tickles his four strings like there's no tomorrow! I LOVE HIM! And you will too, so get some of the last tickets for the MOONGLOW WORLD TOUR! T

Preparations of the tour of tours are going great - We're all looking forward to this. It's just so damn hard to put the setlist together! We might play most of Moonglow and then 2hrs of back catalogue... But it's SO DAMN DIFFICULT! 7 albums to choose from... I hear what you wanna hear, some it is possible, some of it isn't... LIFE IS TOUGH! ;) But I love you for putting me in such "unfortunate" situation to choose songs for what is going to be sold out houses as far as the eye can see! :) YOU ROCK! MOONGLOW WORLD TOUR 2019 - Bring it on!

Folks, hasn‘t my friend Hans Kürsch of Blind Guardian done an outstanding job on Moonglow? Hans isn‘t just a great singer, he is also a unique, loveable and intelligent friend. I am blessed to get support of the best. When I was a kid with a dream, he was one of the first to support me and my bands. He taught me how to arrange choirs! He taught me how to not sign with a management and yet survive in the business. I will never forget his support, have known him for 22 years - he is very special and he did a great job on the album!

It began in autumn 2016 - 30 months later we're about to unleash it. Put together in my own studio, in studios around the globe, in England, on cloud-land, in the moonlight, in the fog, surrounded by spectres and spirits - here we are! MOONGLOW - the countdown is on! Thank you all for your support! I love you and can't wait to see you on the Moonglow world tour from end of March on! Love, T
