Angra - To Tour Brazil With Sepultura

Sepultura and Angra go on tour together in Brazil and Latin America for the first time. A statement from the band reads as follows:

"The two greatest metal bands from Brazil, Sepultura and Angra, will go on a big tour together for the first time. The tour will cover all the Brazilian territory and many other Latin American countries. In Brazil, the tour will include more than 20 cities, with shows in the best venues in the country, like Via Funchal in Sao Paulo and Canecao in Rio de Janeiro, during the months of May, August and September.

Sepultura will begin its Brazilian tour promoting their new CD "A-Lex", after returning from a tour in Europe in February and March that included more than 20 countries. The band is already all booked for 2009, with shows in Europe, United States and Asia. The record has just been released all around the world and is receiving many praises from the Brazilian and international specialized media.

Angra, after a hiatus of about two years, comes back with full power to prove that still is the most important melodic metal band in Brazil. The group is preparing a big return, with a set list that includes the band's greatest hits and some surprises.

The thrash metallers from Sepultura, Derrick Green (vocals), Andreas Kisser (guitar), Paulo Xisto (bass) e Jean Dolabella (drums) will share the stage with Edu Falaschi (vocals), Kiko Loureiro (guitar), Rafael Bittencourt (guitar) e Felipe Andreoli (bass). Ricardo Confessori, one of Angra's first member, returns to the group and substitutes Aquiles Priester on drums."

These are the shows confirmed for May:

06/5 - Porto Alegre - Teatro do Bourbon Country
09/5 - São Paulo - Via Funchal
29/5 - Rio de Janeiro - Canecão
30/5 - Vitória - Ginásio Dom Bosco

Confessori's back in the band! Now that's some news, only the way it is presented implies this is only temporary...
