Now the first guest vocalist can be announced. Avantasia mastermind Tobias Sammett: "Hey Newsletter subscriber, Avantasian and friend of great music! You may have heard about it, but I wanna inform you personally: Ghostlights will feature some of the greatest vocalists of all time, and now I can reveal the first name. To most Avantasia fans he is an old acquaintance: The Striking Viking, Mr. Jorn Lande. We have just finished the studio session with Jorn, and he sounds amazing. The whole material sounds really enchanting, very melodic, very powerful, very emotional. And the best news is: Jorn is also going to join us for the Ghostlights World Tour. Well play 3 hours every night, therell be various amazing vocalists sharing the stage, and Jorn will be one of them." I cant wait to unleash the album and hit the road, and our stage manager is discussing the stage production with several companies right now. We have plans! Of course, the focus has to be on the albums, the songs, and the singers - no doubt! Well keep you posted. Ah, and before I forget: You know I have my own radio show, dont you? Tobias Sammet Rockshow at RadioBob. You can listen online at RadioBob.de as well. Im on the air every Wednesday, from 9PM CET to midnight. Three hours of classic rock and metal. Next Wednesday I think I may announce another guest vocalist on my show. So ok, now back to the studio. Well speak, have a great day, and talk to you soon, Tobi."
