W:O:A Crew has announced, via their Official Website, the AVANTASIA‘s warm-up show just two days before, on July 29th, the beginning of Wacken Open Air 2014. AVANTASIA will play a special “Family & Friends Show” at the Eiderlandhalle in Pahlen (40 km away from Wacken).
This homelike show will be a huge contrast to the big Avantasia show which will take place just 2 days later, only a few kilometers away in front of tens of thousands of fans on the True Metal Stage.
Tobias Sammet: “After more than one year I am really looking forward to see all of my Avantasia colleagues again so we can set a last full stop to the “World Mystery Tour” with a big highlight show in Wacken. To show ourselves that we haven´t become a bit rusty we have decided to do a small attunement with this intimate Warm Up Show. So even Die-Hard fans who weren´t able to get a W:O:A ticket have the chance to see Avantasia live on stage. But also those who are already on their way and those who have just arrived at the festival ground have the possibility to see the Warm Up Show. I am really looking forward to this because the only thing that is better than one Avantasia show are two Avantasia shows! See you!”
Due to the closeness to the festival, owners of a W:O:A ticket (or members of the official Avantasia-fanclub) only pay 15€ plus fees (regular price: 25€ plus fees)! Everybody who will already be at Wacken at this time can take a bus shuttle to the venue for just a small fee of 5€. You have to reserve your shuttle seats under http://bit.ly/avantasiashuttle_en so that we are able to properly plan the capacity.
The Avantasia tickets are available at www.metaltix.com
Important: The cheaper tickets are only valid in association with a valid W:O:A 2014 ticket or a membership of the official Avantasia fan club!
