Happy new year all!

Simple question. Tobi mentioned 25th anniversary shows (as well as a 'special release') are being planned this year in a Facebook post today. What would you like to see at these particular shows?

I'd be happy to see any show and song by Edguy.
Honest.
BUT if they were to play 'Holy Water' i would be one very happy fan.
It's still my favourite Edguy song.

Aye, not sure how many shows to expect, if it'll be a full tour or just a handful of shows. Preparing myself for the prospect of travelling to mainland Europe if there isn't a UK show.

Song wise, of course I'm hoping for rarities. "Holy Water", as you say Muppet, would be a treat. If they can somehow get Kiske along (maybe as a support act, in one form or another) then "Judas at the Opera" would be ace. Not sure if to expect songs they've never done before, although it seems to be something they've been doing recently so who knows.

Others I'd like to see (that they've played before) - obviously not expecting all of them:

Navigator
Under the Moon
Down to the Devil
Spooks in the Attic
The Asylum
Scarlet Rose
Fairytale
Painting on the Wall
The Eternal Wayfarer (sounded a little rough round the edges from the live vid on youtube though)
Theater of Salvation (aka the holy grail)

Never played (that I know of):

Rise of the Morning Glory
Wasted Time
Dragonfly
Sabre & Torch

Not asking for much am I? :P In all honesty though, like Muppet above, I'd just be happy to be there.

I'm not sure what to expect either.
I guess we shall all find out in time.

I don't know what this boxset is meant to be.

I heard it was going to be a new album done in a boxset style with all albums and rarities.

Then i heard it WASN'T a new album, the full new Edguy album will come out 2018 with a full blown world tour.

So i have no idea what to expect.

I'm guessing like you a select number of shows with rarities performed.

Maybe even some more intimate and accoustic styled shows.

It would be amazing to film whatever it ends up being and then releasing it as a 25 years of Edguy DVD with all the specials that come with it.

Either way, whom ever ends up going, wiggle your butts for me and dance up a storm!

Seeing T dance up a storm in front of me with Avantasia was/is unforgettable...
Definitely a force of nature that man!

When asked if there will be a new Edguy Album in 2017, Tobi replied with "Partly...", so we'll probably get at least some new songs as it seems :) I expected a new Best Of/Compilation with some extra songs added, or an EP like they did for Superheroes before Rocket Ride came out, but a boxset would be great too, I think :) Is it confirmed it will be a boxset?

For the anniversary shows ... I'd love if they would do something similiar to what Dream Theater's anniversary tour was like. They played one song from every album they've released. With regard to Edguy, this could probably even work with 1-2 songs from every album :) But I'd be happy if they played only one song from the ones you've mentioned before, especially "Down to the Devil" or "The Asylum" ... or "Hallowed" :D
Really loved when they played "Out of Control", "Spooks in the Attic" and ... well, "9-2-9" at the Bang Your Head!!!-festival in 2012, even though the latter is now forever immortalized in "Love Tyger" :lol: Poor Tobi, second and last time they've played this song :D

From Tobi himself, mostly.
He has talked about it on his radio show.
He also answers fans questions in the comment section on Avantasia's Facebook page which is now Tobias Sammet & Avantasia.
https://www.facebook.com/avantasia/

He doesn't always respond but he does, often enough.
:)

SO, if you are a fan of his work with Avantasia, Edguy or any other project he is part of, ANYTHING TOBIAS SAMMET, then it is a great idea to follow him on his social media sites, ESPECIALLY this Facebook page as he does post weekly, read and respond.

Also, write into his radio show. He wants his fans writing into him so he can read out the emails on air and answer your questions. In German OR English. Give it a try!
:wink:

I was advised it will be a boxset or at least that is what the current working idea is and Tobi had already mentioned it as such on his show, as a work in progress, boxset thing.
BUT it may change.
Then again, i may have been misinformed.
HOWEVER Tobi said he will tell us all more when the time is right.
:)

OMG, someone strap him to a chair that is bolted to the stage floor when he sings that please!?!
I'm always so terrified he is going to injury himself, beyond repair.
I know first hand how a split second/injury can change the course of the rest of your life!

Hopefully UK show announcements won't be too far off. Otherwise I'll definitely be trekking to mainland Europe!
