Avantasia decided to play wo days prior to the beginning of the 25th edition of Wacken Open Air AVANTASIA a special “Family & Friends Show“ at Eiderland-Halle, Pahlen. 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 started at 8.30PM.

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!“

“Ramona and me arrived at the location around 19:30 and when we stood in front of the concert hall, it looked like a small concert hall, but after entering we found out, it was bigger than expected. It was very hot in the venue, but not completely filled. I guess it were aroud 500 people, while the venue can handle around 2000 people. I guess people thoight they already play at Wacken and for other interested people it was too far away.

Nevertheless the concert started around 20:30 with the known ‘Spectres’ and was followed by a nice performance, but you could see they were not on stage together for a long time. A few mistakes with starting to sing etc. Also Tobias seemed to have vocal problems, especially during the very high parts. I guess he had a flu, since the same happened a few days later in Wacken. Michael Kiske dod a very good performance, despite that it was too short. A little curiosity was the performance of ‘Farewell’, since Amanda Somerville was not available for this warm-up show, so Tobias also sang the female part, for the enjoyment of the audience. They played a set of 2 hours. ” 🙂
