Having played sold out venues all over Europe on the first leg of their Mystery World Tour, German composer and vocalist Tobias Sammet’s AVANTASIA are about to kick-off the festival season, and have been announced for another appearance. On July 27th the band will headline the Rock Of Ages festival in Rottenburg-Seebronn, Germany.
Other acts on the bill for the festival include DORO, KROKUS, MOTHER’S FINEST, ALAN PARSON’S PROJECT, UFO and many more.
Further details and tickets at this location.
The Mystery Of Time, the latest release from Avantasio, was released earlier this month in North America, selling nearly 2,000 copies and checking in at #9 on the Billboard Heat Seekers chart. The album also debuted at #33 on the Hard Rock chart.
While Sammet has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide, The Mystery Of Time easily set Avantasia sales records when it released in his native Germany last month; it sold more than twice as many copies as any previous Avantasia album in the first week of its release, while rocketing straight to #2 on the official German Mediacontrol album charts. The record also cracked the Top 10 in Finland, Sweden and England.
