‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’, ‘I Wanna Rock’, ‘The Kids Are Back’… there’s hardly any rock fan around the globe who isn’t familiar with the big hits of rock icons TWISTED SISTER, whose frontman Dee Snider is going to appear on the forthcoming AVANTASIA album “Ghostlights” out on January, 29th.
Tobias comments: “I’ve always been a fan of Twisted Sister and Dee Snider in particular. He is entertaining, flamboyant, energetic, loud, tongue in cheek, colourful and mean! When I was young, I remember that he was the kind of character that I wanted to be. A crossing between peacock, jackal and Bugs Bunny. I loved it! On “Ghostlights” Dee is gonna be a ghost, and what a ghost he is. Great performance. Dee, welcome to the Avantasia family!”
Finally after Dee Snider, Geoff Tate, Michael Kiske and Jorn Lande, another guest vocalist is confirmed to appear on the forthcoming AVANTASIA: Mr. Bob Catley.
Mainly known as the voice on masterpieces such as “On A Storyteller’s Night” or “Wings Of Heaven” by British Epic Rock legend MAGNUM, Bob Catley has also made himself a name amongst AVANTASIA fans, having appeared on signature tracks such as ‘In Quest For’, ‘The Story Ain’t Over’ or ‘The Great Mystery’.
Besides Jorn Lande, Michael Kiske and many more, Bob will also join AVANTASIA on the European tour that is going to kick off in March. AVANTASIA have already stated that they’ll play over three hours every night and the setlist will contain both, some new material but also a lot of older classic stuff from all eras of the band’s history.
More singers are going to be announced soon.
