Edguy frontman Tobias Sammet has posted the following tour update at the band's official website:
"Hello from a hotel room in Madrid. Everything is going great so far, almost every show had been sold out or was at least close. Yesterday in Italy there was a weird thing going on. Around midnight, I guess it wasn't even ten in the morning, Italian police officers disturbed our beauty sleep on the tour bus asking for money. Weird, I thought the days of corruption in the civilized world were long gone. Half asleep I replied 'It's not Manni, it's Tobi!' Then one of the sheriffs asked me for drugs. I mean, even if I took drugs and had some, I wouldn't share them with a corrupted police officer, would you?! I was tempted to ask if he couldn't maybe specify what he was in need of exactly. But it seemed they weren't in a funny mood. I mean: we don't do drugs and I told him that all we had was some whiskey and beer. His answer was "Den I come widda dog!" Yes, each to his own, there's people who like to come with dogs. Anyway, the whole procedure took 45 minutes and they turned the bus upside down. We neither had a hostage by the name of Manni, nor did we have drugs. All we finally had was a bad mood and dog's hair everywhere and a terrible smell. Our lighting engineer said it was his first time having been woken up by a dog's asshole on his face. Weird shit happens!!! Anyway, the Italian fans have been worth it! Even a dog's ass on Holgi's face. It was a female dog anyway. This tour is great fun and it feels great to be out to see you guys! Take care, Tobi!"
Within Temptation will contribute exclusive songs for the launch of a new PC Game titled The Chronicles Of Spellborn.
On the band's official site they stated:
"When we were asked if we were interested to write music for a computer game which is being developped in The Netherlands, we didn't have to think twice. We all are enthusiastic gamers. Whether at home or on tour, computer games are prefect to relax and sometimes they even inspire our music. We will be able to reveal more details soon. If you're curious what sort of game it is, you can check it out here: www.tcos.com"
