On March 30th Avantasia will release their new album “The Mystery Of Time”. Several journalists have already made comments that the new epic might mark the best Avantasia album ever, featuring ten tracks and guest stars such as Biff Byford (SAXON), Michael Kiske (UNISONIC, ex-HELLOWEEN), Joe Lynn Turner (ex-RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE), Eric Martin (MR. BIG), Ronnie Atkins (PRETTY MAIDS), Bruce Kulick (ex-KISS), Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Russell Gilbrook (URIAH HEEP) and more.
Now another vocalist can be confirmed for the album: Bob Catley, legendary frontman of British Epic Rock storytellers MAGNUM. And Bob will not only be featured on the album, besides Michael Kiske, Amanda Somerville and Eric Martin, Bob has also been confirmed to join Avantasia on their forthcoming world tour. For their own April indoor shows (not festivals), Avantasia have been confirmed to play three-hour special shows, not only celebrating the release of their forthcoming album, but also embracing all eras of the bands history.
Avantasia’s complete routing is available at this location.
