Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Savatage Special Show in WackenJul 17th, 2015
You’ve probably been wondering what is going on with the TSO and Savatage shows on Thursday, July 30th in Wacken. As you might have noticed from the schedule, Savatage will play the Black Stage at 09:45PM and TSO will play the True Metal Stage at the same time.
This is definitely NOT a misprint!
On Thursday July 30th, 2015 the exceptional musicians of both bands are set to make festival history (and maybe even music history!) For anyone who’s afraid to miss something from either bands, rest assured, this won’t happen! We don´t want to spoil too much, but TSO and Savatage have been jamming together all day (and night) to prepare a show the metal world has never seen before.
The bands sent a message to all the fans waiting for the upcoming show…this is going to be awesome!
Here is the statement:
“To All Our Friends,
The moment is now
In all history
The time has arrived
And this is the one place to be!
To say that all of us are feeling surreally excited about the rapidly approaching concert on July 30th, at Wacken is a massive understatement. The closest we can come to describing it, is a family reunion, with over 75,000 of our friends, in the epicenter of the Metal World. In a world that is currently exhausted by non-stop reports of uncertainty and divisiveness, Wacken Open Air Festival, stands as a living, breathing testament of inclusiveness and hope. We all get to reconnect, meet old friends and make new ones.
Everyone at this festival is united by the common language of Heavy Metal and all its variations. Metal is a unique phenomenon, whose power to unite and persevere has long been underestimated. It currently bridges all nationalities, occupations, and most impressively, generations.
All of us in Trans Siberian Orchestra and Savatage cannot believe the luck that has given us the opportunity to take a break from recording the new album Letters From The Labyrinth, so that we can meet up in Wacken, Germany and together, look back at how we got here, as well as forward to possibly catch a glimpse of what might be. This is a once in a lifetime show for Savatage & TSO that we hope you will never forget.
On a final note, we are fascinated by the power that allows this night to happen year after year. It has nothing to do with electricity, pyro, or speaker wattage. It is a force far more powerful, but is subtly hidden in the name, “Wacken Open Air Festival.” The multiple day concert is possible in the “Open Air,” because tens of thousands of people, from all over the world, can set up tents, share food, and go to sleep without locked doors or windows. This is because there is an overwhelming feeling of trust.
In this environment, all can relax, and the night will be free to weave magic both old and new.
See you at the show,
Savatage & TSO”
