Sweden Rock Festival – Sölvesborg, Sweden
June 7, 2008
Sorry about the pictures, but these are the best shots I could get from where I was.
There was a hard choice to make... Since I wanted to be among the first rows for Poison, I couldn't be near the Rock Stage for Avantasia.
Avantasia live was one of the most expected moments of the festival. This legendary project was finally on stage!
All expectations were fully met: I don't think anybody was disappointed after that show.
Amanda Somerville and Claudy Yang were backing Tobias Sammet's vocals, while guest vocalists came for different songs: Bob Catley, André Matos, Kai Hansen and "the devil of devils" (as introduced by Tobias): Jørn Lande.
They made an epic show, the sound was excellent, and all the musician delivered a great performance.
Maybe I'll never see this band again, but for sure this gig will remain in my mind forever.
