Review by Staphanie (Elvenbeauty):

Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia-Ghostlights tour came to the U.S. this year for the first time ever in Avantasia History,¬†bringing incredible talented artists together such as Michael Kiske, Jorn Lande, Eric Martin, Ronnie Atkins, Amanda¬†Somerville, Herbie Langhans, and more… Being one of the first in line to enter the Playstation Theater in NYC was exciting enough, but my first Avantasia¬†experience was mind-blowing. The energy of the crowd was¬†explosive on the opening with “Mystery of a Blood Red Rose”,¬†and got even louder when Michael Kiske came onstage during¬†“Ghostlights”. There were several times when Tobi was¬†speaking, the crowd would interupt him by chanting¬†“Avantasia” and clapping, and Tobi would have this look of¬†amazement on his face. Tobi stated a few times during the¬†show that he was suprised by the audience in New York and at¬†one point, he said that if they do another Avantasia album in¬†the future, they would definately come back to New York. As¬†the night went on, the audience continued to cheer with¬†enthusiasm during songs from the new album Ghostlights, like¬†“Lucifer” with Jorn Lande, and “Draconian Love” featuring¬†Herbie Langhan. There was also the nostalgic songs from The¬†Metal Opera albums such as, “Farewell”,”Reach Out for the¬†Light” and “Avantasia”. Around 11 pm, Tobi said it was past¬†curfew and they would get fined, but that they were gonna¬†play the entire 3 and a half hour set anyway! And they ended¬†the show with a fantastic encore, playing “Lost In Space” and¬†“Sign of the Cross/The Seven Angels”. This was by far the¬†best concert that I’ve ever seen and will certainly see again¬†if they come back!
