On March 30th, the new AVANTASIA album, The Mystery Of Time, will hit stores. In April, Avantasia will set off on their European leg of the Mystery World Tour and another vocalist has been confirmed...
He hasn't been on stage for years, but he has shown his abilities as one of Germany‘s finest vocalists in the backing choirs on countless album productions. Now he will hit the road with Avantasia. Many of you may remember the legendary German band HEAVENS GATE. No less a singer than Heavens Gate vocalist Thomas Rettke will join the flying opera on the road.
