Avantasia - Reveal New DVD Artwork

While you are reading these lines the editors are putting the finishing touches on the forthcoming Avantasia double DVD (concert film and documentary) The Flying Opera - Around The World In 20 Days.

Both DVD's portray the all-star ensemble's journey on their first ever world tour in 2008. Within just a few weeks the studio project Avantasia became a traveling live event featuring many artists from various bands who got together and set off on the road under the flag of Avantasia for the first time.

The first DVD contains a live concert with a running time of almost two hours featuring footage filmed at the headlining shows of Wacken Open Air (Germany) and Masters Of Rock (Czech Republic). On the second DVD there will be a movie "Around The World In 20 Days" that gives fans the opportunity to join Avantasia backstage and take a look at the surroundings and the thrill behind the scenes that go along with an extensive undertaking such as this. The DVD-set will portray Avantasia 2008 when it all started.

The Flying Opera - Around The World In 20 Days will be available as a 2-DVD set featuring the documentary movie, a live concert film, and additional bonus material. It will be also available as a double live album on CD and as a limited edition 2-CD / 2-DVD boxset. The effort is slated for an early March release via Nuclear Blast Records in Europe and Avalon Marquee in Asia.

The band also confirmed their performance at Wacken Open Air in August will be their only show in 2011.

LOL He looks a little old in this pic... maybe too old. And his glasses are missing.

Anyway, I've been a little off Avantasia cause I didn't like the last albums. Maybe I'll check this though... but only cause Slash is in the cover!
It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.

Imo the album covers, since "The Scarecrow", don't fit the pussy music Sammet churns out these days. They give the impression you're looking at a metal record, when the music is hard rock and pop rock.
There's nothing metal about current Avantasia.
They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody
