When the Full Metal Cruise, Europe’s biggest heavy metal cruise, arrives in Amsterdam on May 10th, the fans onboard and from land can look forward to a very special concert: AVANTASIA will be playing a three hour show at the Melkweg, one of the most famous locations in the Netherlands. In addition, spontaneous metal fans now have the possibility to reserve a balcony cabin on the Full Metal Cruise for a special flex price.
Tobias Sammet (EDGUY) comments about this concert: “I’m really looking forward to presenting the whole Avantasia show in Amsterdam with our guest artists to a wild horde of sailors on their shore leave. In fact, it will be the first time that we play the Netherlands with Avantasia. So: Anybody who wants to experience a spectacle additionally to the cruise should make sure to get a ticket for a special cruise price. You will become a witness to a really big thing which you will tell your grandchildren about. I’m looking forward to it. So, ahoy – like the sailor says…”
