Moonglow World Tour
Mystery of a Blood Red Rose
After a successful Mystery World Tour (w/ only two remaining concerts to be played next week) with many sold out shows around the globe Tobias and AVANTASIA will finish this era of their history with a headlining performance in front of more than 80,000 people at Wacken Open Air once again.

A statement from Tobias who just held a press conference at the festival:

“I am happy to confirm that our managers and the managers of Wacken Open Air have struck an agreement and we‘ll play the festival of festivals again. Not only are Wacken 2014 going to celebrate their 25th anniversary, but the show will also mark my 10th performance at Wacken Open Air, if I count Edguy, Avantasia and my little guest appearance with Saxon on 2007. Well, this current Avantasia tour has been the most successful tour I have ever been on by far, with shows being sold out even in places I had never been to before and our drummer can‘t even spell. Now we‘re about to put the icing on the cake and finish this with a big bang, and there is no better way to bid farewell than doing it in front of 80,000 of our closest friends. There won‘t be any further Avantasia activities, it‘ll be just a single show. I may be back with an idea and go for it somewhere in the distant future, I won‘t say farewell is forever this time, but I have no clue as to when and where and who would be able to join us and what it would sound and look like, if we‘d ever do this again in a couple of years. So, get your tickets for Wacken 2014 cause it‘ll be your last chance to catch us, if not forever at least for some years. See you, T“
Having returned from their American and Asian leg of the tour with the majority of concerts being completely sold out, AVANTASIA are back on European ground to ring in the end of their Mystery World Tour 2013. The tour had kicked off in Belgium in April and went on through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, France, Russia, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Japan and the Czech Republic.

Now AVANTASIA are about to headline the German Rock Of Ages festival in Seebronn. Other bands on the bill are Leningrad Cowboys, Mothers Finest, Doro, Krokus, Subway To Sally, Alan Parsons Live Project and more.

The last two shows of the tour will take place in Slovakia and England in August, check the tour section for details!
We regret to inform you that there are no more tickets available for the AVANTASIA show in Sao Paulo. Due to legal policies the venue's capacity has been reduced to 4,800 people.
Featuring all those news about confirmations of shows that turned out to be culminating in a nearly sold out world tour we almost forgot to mention the breathtaking news that the most recent AVANTASIA album THE MYSTERY OF TIME also made it to #9 in the US Heat Seekers Billboard charts, which marks the project's highest US chartentry ever. Meanwhile AVANTASIA have set off on the second leg of their tour which will bring the band to France, Russia, Argentina, Costa Rica, Columbia, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Canada and Japan. Check the tour section for details. At the end of July AVANTASIA are going to headline the prestigious Masters Of Rock festival in front of 25,000 people.
