Approximate translation of the file
Tuesday November 30, 2010… first date d' a round envisaged over one month and which s' announces like a Metal great adventure!

Indeed, in the cold and the snow of Pratteln, Tobias SAMMET, brain of group EDGUY, presents once again into live its j' personal project; named AVANTASIA.
This project, begun at the beginning of 2000 with The Metal Opera Part 1 & 2 was a considerable success and definitively propelled Tobias to the row of large of Heavy Metal! D' other CDs then followed with, by chronological order, The Scarecrow like Angel of Babylon and Wicked Symphony left in the form of double album a few months ago.

In addition to the quality of the compositions, the force of the project is to join together the great names of Metal around the small imp in order to transcend a Epic-Rock'n'roll unit of great quality. Thus, from André MATOS to Henjo RICHTER, from Ripper OWENS to David DEFEIS, Bob CATLEY to Bruce KULICK, Klaus MEINE to Kai HANSEN, Tobias joined together the best to take part in its adventure! Splendid on paper and out of CD, but impossible to put in scene?

C' is qu' here; it s' acts to pay homage to the companion of always of SAMMET : Sascha PAETH, guitarist, producer and creator except par! Sascha indeed took the heavy step to convince Tobias to carry on scene this imposing project. Already carried out in 2008 with some dates all over the world, this spectacle version 2010 much more was ground and prepared that the precedent, profiting moreover bonds create between the various musicians since then.

We thus attended the Z7 of PRATTELN at the very first date of the round 2010 in a room of course fills… and impatient to see the dream TEAM with l' work!
When the show starts, it is 20:10 and one then does not know that more than two hours and half of music await us!

the setlist that you will find Ci below does not contain less than 19 songs including some coming very close to 10 minutes: we are entitled to an immense spectacle in all the directions of the term!
Immense, duration of the show of course but also the quality of the service. The songs are really well chosen and emphasize the sides which make fly in the music d' AVANTASIA : c' is epic, c' is beautiful, c' is rock'n'roll N roll! All is there to give us shivers…

a beginning of show with (already) of beautiful people on scene before Tobias n' start Twisted Mind… thus think! Sascha PAETH and Oliver HARTMANN with the guitar, Miro RODENBERG with the keyboard, Félix BOHNKE with the battery, Amanda SOMERVILLE with the choruses… and here is our troublemaker preferred, in full form, which only begins with the song this dantesque concert…
the continuation proceeds as in a dream: the titles s' all connect stronger and touching, the musicians s' amuse on scene and are obviously delighted d' to be thus joined together, the public breaks out, taking again in chorus the refrains (and sometimes even l' together songs)… the magic night continues… it made cold outside, there was snow, it made night… c' was Christmas before l' hour… the dream thus continues when Jorn LANDE appears not to leave the scene almost more and to devote itself to a duet d' exception with Tobias. Powerful and melody, Norwegian impresses of facility and talent: " the voice of Dieu" you would say Catalina! C' is then a miracle which occurs with l' appearance on stage of Michael KISKE! Exceptional singer of group HELLOWEEN at the end of years 80, KISKE had practically turned the back on the world of the Metal… and here it is of return to the stage, him and his crystalline voice like still adding to this unreal scenic vision! Then l' comes; Bob CATLEYexcel, which brings a voice d' a moving sensitivity… icing on the cake, c' whole smile and with l' is Kai HANSEN ; ease like never which supplements a casting of madness! And the titles s' connect, without idle period… and the public takes full the eyes of them: it is necessary to look at everywhere… and on this small scene, one says qu' one finds the gratin of Heavy Metal… each glance carried inevitably fall on a star who stirs up last memories d' old concerts… and that s' do not stop… two hours spend, two hours and quarter, two hours and half!!! When the final one arrives, all the troop is present at the same time: this medley SIGN OF THE CROSS/SEVEN ANGELS is like a fire d' artifice… the stars ravel last once… c' is a farandole, c' is carnival, c' is Christmas before l' hour!!

22:50… the scene are empty, l' excitation is always there and with it, this feeling d' to have lived a true Metal moment. Each concert is single, each spectacle brings its batch d' emotions. But here, exceptional character and transitory of l' event combined with the presence of so many known figures met that and there randomly in the multiple lived concerts… c' is the summary d' a life of fan… or the synthesis d' a career filled already well, that of Tobias SAMMET which levels us by recomposing duet HANSEN-KISKE or by offering the presence of l' to us; époustouflant Jorn LANDE.

C' is the moment to take again the road but one trails a little… one makes last once it tower of the room… and which knows? One hopes to cross one of the musicians… C' is precisely what will occur when by far, d' is seen; access Sascha PAETH… that without which nothing n' would have can be existed? L' occasion then d' to go to congratulate it, of l' to encourage for the continuation… and to again see ravelling the stars of the evening, pleasing, smiling, available and almost chatter boxes… Here is still a good point with this evening: these musicians there are not that musicians among most brilliant in their style, they are also simple and humble people who n' do not hesitate to come to mix with the fans… for this reason this assembly functions scene so of course… there is the talent, but there is also l' friendship and l' humility: very to give l' impression with the public qu' one very gave for him… that n' does not have price, and one accepts more readily after such an amount of happiness, to face the 400 km under a snowstorm ever seen to rejoin the port d' attaches… and so finally, c' was really Christmas???!

Encore mieux avec les photos, même si ils ont pris un petit coup de vieux nos héros, et pour le coup nous aussi !!! Aïe ! J'ai un seul album d'Oliver HARTMANN, Home(2007) qui est vraiment excellent ! Un musicien qui mérite d'être découvert car talentueux même si éloigné du style AVANTASIA ! Paco, t'as demandé à Tobias le nom du magasin où il achète ses fringues ? Bzzz
