A few days after the warm-up show, Avantasia played at the 25th anniversary edition of Wacken 2014 (sold out) as headliner

10590434_10152614866000070_8904912682821053146_nTobias said to the warm up show and Wacken the following: “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!“

“I was at Wacken festival since Thursday 31. August and the weather was quite hot and sunny, so a lot of dust there. Apart from Avantasia, Starchild (the band of Kiske friend Sandro Giampietro), Masterplan (band of old Kiske companion Roland Grapow) and Neopera (band of Gamma Ray member Dirk Schlächter) played there as well.

After Amon Amarth finished, I managed to get in a quite good position for Avantasia at around 4th row. They started at 22:00 with the concert and the same setlist than at the warm-up show. Sadly Tobias voice problems were worse than before and he could not hit any high notes here. He was not the only one with a few voice problems here. Michael Kiske and Eric Martin did the best vocal performances at this concert. The sound was not very good and the sound engineer seemed to have problems with a good vocal mix, the picrofones were not working sometimes or were too low in the sound. This was even noticeable in the TV recording. Nevertheless I had a quite good position for Kiske’s voice and he did a much better performance than at Wacken 2011. regarding the audiences, there could have been a little more enthusiasm at some songs. Crowdsurfer mainyl only arrived during the fast Kiske tracks. Tobias joked a little with the waiting Kreator fans on the other stage and all in all it was a good performance with too few songs for Michael Kiske. Amanda Somerville was also back for this concert and they played a set of 2 hours. ” 🙂
