Tobias Sammet 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…”
