Hip, Hip – Hooray! Hip, Hip – Hooray!!! At long last Tobias Sammet is bringing his Metal Opera “Avantasia” to the USA and according to the press release that hit my desk not too long ago, will be doing three dates in total on this side of the pond. I’ve culled those dates along from the press copy. Check it out below.
“Don’t miss AVANTASIA on their upcoming world tour when they make 3 stops in North America! Catch them on April 11th at the House of Blues Anaheim in California, on April 13th at the Queen Elizabeth Theater in Toronto, Ontario, and on April 15th at the Playstation Theater in New York City!”
North American Dates:
4/11/2016: Anaheim, CA – House Of Blues
4/13/2016: Toronto, ON – Queen Elizabeth Theater
4/15/2016:: New York, NY – Playstation Theater
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay my Metal Legions, this is going to be something truly fantastic to behold because to the best of my knowledge, Avantasia has never been to the USA in all of their fifteen year existence. I remember reading something somewhere that they played in Quebec at a music festival but that is not a date here and especially not in what I feel is the epicenter of music – New York City. Now is your chance to support and witness something extraordinary while you have the chance. Its also a chance for you to be ahead of the game on numerous other Metalheads by bearing witness to the NYC or California shows since its only going to these two stops in the states and another in Toronto. You can think you are all about the Metal all you want but if you should bypass something as unique and interesting as this you hardly impress me with the statement. Dare to be different, dare to break free of the pack that supports the same old bands over and over and over again and lend some love for the grandiose opulence that will be the Avantasia show. Are you with me?
