Why does it not surprise me that these two bands miss the UK again...
Zmaj Ognjeni Vuk - 21.11.2009 at 13:18  
Gamma Ray was the better part of the Helloween concert two years ago (the Hellish rock tour), so I'll be very happy to see them again.
Legendary - 21.11.2009 at 14:23  
No Holland:(
Abattoir - 21.11.2009 at 14:51  
Well if there is no Slovenian date, at least they will play at Zagreb which ain't that far for me...

Great, now i have something to think about again...

Aww we need more Euro flower power in the states
swatata - 21.11.2009 at 22:56  
Oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh They are coming to Bulgaria SWEET!!!
MightyFireLord - 22.11.2009 at 03:06  
They miss the UK, Holland, and the whole Scandinavia... and they came to these countries for the Hellish Tour with Helloween two years ago.
So I think there will be another part of this european tour.
Adunnakhor - 22.11.2009 at 03:23  
European tour? I can't see anything else than "Germany" on that list...
kamelot73 - 22.11.2009 at 09:29  
I Think i wiil be there to see them in Athens
Angelic Storm - 22.11.2009 at 09:35  
Not again! Gamma Ray never play the UK, and the rare occasion they do, it's always London. I've wanted to see them for a very long time now. Doubt I ever will though...:(
replica of me - 22.11.2009 at 11:38  
Once again they forget about Poland. They've never played here and what is interesting all cools bands seems to forget about us. That's extremely sad.
The Shape 1973 - 22.11.2009 at 12:48  
Is the tour going to be to support a new album?
GT - 22.11.2009 at 14:02  
Three great bands. Too bad they're missing Denmark from the looks of it. Hope they'll announce a second leg with the missing countries later
Baz Anderson - 22.11.2009 at 14:26  
The new song "To The Metal" was played at Wacken... and unfortunately it wasn't great. Just another tedious "heavy metal" anthem, you already know what it sounds like before you've heard it.

I hope they pick the game up with the rest of the album - whenever it is released, I used to absolutely love these guys.
Angelic Storm - 22.11.2009 at 15:12  
Agreed about "To The Metal". It was very dull. As a "heavy metal anthem", it pales next to "Heavy Metal Universe". When you've already recorded a great anthem like that, you dont need to do another, especially inferior versions of it.

"Land Of The Free II" is the worst album they've ever done, so I really hope the next one is better.
Baz Anderson - 22.11.2009 at 15:19  
Yes, agreed about the albums too.
Angelic Storm - 22.11.2009 at 15:33  
Gamma Ray are one of my fave bands, so it makes me sad when they release sub-standard material. I even loved ''Majestic''. which I know some fans didn't like. But LOTF 2 was mostly just uninspired, and not a very exciting listen. I'm just hoping "To The Metal" isn't an indication of what the new album is going to be like. With any luck, it'll just be a poor track on a great album, but I definitely have my doubts...

As for the tour, when Helloween finally played here on "The Legacy" tour, I had high hopes for them coming back on the next tour. But they didn't, they just played London, and to make it even worse, they had Gamma Ray as support! I still really want to see Gamma Ray live, even if the quality of recent material hasn't been very good.
The Shape 1973 - 22.11.2009 at 20:46  
Dan is going to be knackered if he is drumming for Gamma Ray and Freedom Call.
Zmaj Ognjeni Vuk - 22.11.2009 at 21:10  
I've just pre-ordered tickets for my girlfriend and me. 19 Euros a piece for a next-to-stage place, very nice
Snbn - 22.11.2009 at 21:40  
Hope they will come at finland without suport bands etc. Then they will play longer set.

Totally agreed.

Are Gamma Ray still signed to SPV? If so who is paying for this tour?
Valentin B - 22.11.2009 at 22:11  
No Romania? well, i'm not missing anything..
LeChron James - 23.11.2009 at 06:30

I've already seen Gamma Ray live three times, and interviewed them (with Jeff from this website), and seen Freedom Call live once. I'm not going to travel for this tour... I'm sure I'll bump into them at some festival down the line again.

So I think there will be another part of this european tour.

Actually, Gamma Ray visits Norway next year
Zenzero - 02.01.2010 at 01:52  
3 of my favourite bands! i'll be in barcelona since april, so i can't see tham live! i'm really angry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lord_Regnier - 02.01.2010 at 18:58  
Secret Sphere sucks.
Freedom Call sucks after "Eternity".

And if "To The Metal" is a hint at how the next album will sound, Gamma Ray will start to suck also.
The Shape 1973 - 18.01.2010 at 19:55  
Dan has left Freedom Call after the producing of the latest album, so he will only be playing with Gamma Ray.
Gamma_Ray - 01.07.2010 at 00:07  
I saw them in Gothenburg, they were awesome! Freedom Call is also one of my favorite bands so it was great that they also joined the tour.

That is not true, he hasnt left Freedom Call. He will still be writing and making albums with them, he just wont be touring with them anymore. Klaus Sperling (Ex Primal Fear) is their touring drummer.
