EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has revived his all-star project AVANTASIA to produce a new rock opera album called The Mystery Of Time (to be released in March 2013), followed by monumental live venture – The Mystery World Tour. In a few chosen cities around the globe Avantasia (featuring guest stars you’d expect but also some major surprises) will hit the stage with their infamous magical show. During their own headlining indoor tour the band will play three-hour shows in order to embrace all eras of their history and play enough songs from their early works, but also recent and current material. At the summer festivals the band won’t be able to play three hour shows of course, but nevertheless they will deliver a more compact set, dedicated to the new album and some of their greatest hits.
