P1050464Two days prior to the beginning of the 25th edition of Wacken Open Air AVANTASIA are going to play a special “Family & Friends Show“ at Eiderland-Halle, Pahlen. A bus shuttle is going to bring fans from W:O:A festival to the concert venue and back.

Never before there has been such a warm-up show: AVANTASIA are gonna play a little club show in Pahlen near Wacken four days prior to their gig at the giant festival. The warm-up party is gonna start at 8.30PM, doors will open at 7PM.

Tobias says: “I am so looking forward to meet my AVANTASIA buddies again, finally -after one year- to finish the ‘Mystery World Tour‘ with a huge bang at the most prestigious Metal festival on earth. And because we want to prove to ourselves that we haven‘t rusted since last year‘s final show we‘ve decided to play a little warm-show in a nice and cozy atmosphere. Fans who couldn‘t get a Wacken ticket, or people who‘re on their way to Wacken, even those who’ll be already at the festival site: They can all check out AVANTASIA in a completely different environment there. We‘re so looking forward to it, because the only thing better than an AVANTASIA show, well, that‘s TWO AVANTASIA SHOWS! Ha! See ya all there!“

W:O:A 2014 ticket holders and Savage Union Fanclub members will pay only 15,- € plus fee. The regular price is going to be only 25,- € plus fee. Tickets only available while supplies last. Fans who‘ll plant to be at the Wacken festival grounds on Tuesday already can book a shuttle from the festival to the warm-up show and back. Shuttle tickets have to be booked in advance at www.wacken.com/avantasiashuttle_en.

Tickets for the show are available at www.Metaltix.com. Ticket-hotline +49 (0) 4827 – 99966666.

Kiske Fanclub did an exclusice Starchild interview with Sandro Giampietro, who is known as the guitarist of Helge Schneider and worked for the first time together with Michael Kiske in the Supared album. Michael Kiske already mentioned at that time that Sandro is a big fan of Heavy Metal music. He later joined again Michael Kiske on his solo album called ‘Kiske’ and the accoustic album ‘Past in Different Ways’. Additionally Michael Kiske and Sandro Giampietro are working together on the Kiske & Giampietro album, which will replace Kiske solo and in which Sandro will take over all production duties.

 

Kiske Fanclub: In one interview our Fanclub did with you in 2006 you commented that you wanted to do another project/band with Jens Becker after Zillion. Starchild started in that moment? How much time did you spend in working on this album?

Sandro: Starchild started in 2012. If you leave beside the pre-production I spend one year working in the album.

 

Kiske Fanclub: Would you name Starchild a band or a project? Can we expect more albums & a tour in the future?

Sandro: Starchild is a real Band and not a project. We are actually writing on the second album and we are making plans – together with All Access – for a tour this year.
