Taken from the Kamelot newsletter:

"After the release of their great new album "Ghost Opera", Kamelot will hit the road again and will do shows in main areas of Europe. The album entered a lot of charts in different countries. For example: Norway #25, Sweden #29, Finland #35, USA #48 Indie, Netherlands #51, Germany #61, France #83, Switzerland #83, Greece #23, Japan #13, UK #24 Indie.

With the success of the "Ghost Opera" album fans are demanding more, more, more! Melodic metal masters Kamelot return to select Europe cities for a once in a lifetime tour and stage show. Bringing with them as special guests the Greek heavyweights Firewind and the Austrian/American female fronted group Visions Of Atlantis, this package will be one of the highlights of the year.

Founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood adds: "The shows in connection with this album so far have been amazing, the fans and the band are as one everynight and there is an almost kinship between us. The shows will be something we will cherish forever!".

Singer/songwriter Khan adds: "This Ghost Opera Tour will be our last tour of Europe until the next studio release, so we are planning even more specials for the fans!".

Special guests on this memorable tour are Greek phenoms Firewind with virtuoso guitarist Gus G. at the helm. "I'm glad we're finally able to confirm a full European tour together with our buddies from Kamelot! As if the excitement wasn't enough when we announced the Japan tour with them, the idea popped up to do the full European run in 2008. What a great way to start the next year! We an't wait to come back and play for all our fans as well as make new ones. See you out there soon! Gus G./Firewind".

Also on tour will be female fronted gothic metal band Visions of Atlantis. This hybrid of America/Austrian members are making waves in the scene as one of the premier up and coming bands. "We are very excited to announce that we will be on tour with Kamelot through the whole of Europe! They are such fantastic and respectable musicians, and we are really proud to be partaking in this experience - this package simply rocks. It will be great to be able to play for our European friends again as well...it has been quite a while away from you all! Thanks to everyone for your support and thanks to Kamelot for giving us this wonderful experience!" Melissa/Visions Of Atlantis".

Kamelot and Firewind on the same bill, now that's a great concert. Wish they did this in the US tour, nothing against Leaves Eyes, but Firewind would have been a better fit.

Really nice with Firewind also, eventhough I liked them better before.

02.05.2008 - Göteborg, SE - Trädgarn - Is booked for me.
