Avantasia Lining Up 2013 Headlining Tour Dates

Avantasia, which entered the studio back in October, has now announced an upcoming headlining tour kicking off in April, 2013. The trek is also slated to include summer festivals and shows in South America and Asia. Tobias Sammet comments:

"I know I once said we weren't gonna do it again, but then I don‘t see a reason to let this die. I wanna put on the biggest thing you have ever seen, I wanna bring more vocalists, play longer shows, and just make it a giant Rock Opera. I love to headline festivals, you run over people in 90 minutes and kick ass. But I also like to do our own Avantasia indoor tour because we can make it much more Avantasia oriented and play almost three hours without caring about anything else but Avantasia.

"So we said, we have to do a giant indoor tour as well, and it's going to happen in April. I am so looking forward to it. The stage designer has just showed me his stage and light design, and it looks absolutely killer. It will be huge. 2013 will be a major year for Avantasia, and people don't have a clue how big things are actually going to be! I am very excited - the album will be amazingly epic, and the tour will be too!"

Tour dates will be announced soon through the Tobias Sammet official website.
