SHOWS IN ESSEN, FULDA & BAMBERG POSTPONED
Due to a virus infection and an accute laryngitis that Tobias Sammet has been diagnosed with, Edguy have to postpone the concerts in Essen, Fulda and Bamberg this weekend. The band is working on rescheduling the concerts in late October. Tickets remain valid! "I am really sorry, it is the second consecutive tour this shit happens to me! I have just returned from the phoniatrics unit of the university hospital Essen, because I so desperately wanted to play those shows this coming weekend, but my throat just says 'no'. It doesn't work. I sincerely apologize to all of you who might be disappointed, be sure I must be the most disappointed one myself. We'll do everything to reschedule those dates after the regular tour is finished, we keep you updated regarding the dates. - Tobi"

THE ELECTRIC HELLHOUND CONQUERS EUROPE
Iron Maiden have Eddie, Kiss have make-up, but we got the Electric Hellhound. Bombers, eagles, motorcycles and muscles, you've seen it all you think? Well, a new era of live shows has begun: The age of the joker will go down in history as the AGE OF THE ELECTRIC HELLHOUND! Check this out and the cheops pyramids and Mount Rushmore will be just a mere joke! A few months ago we had the first vision, that we wanted to do something special on this tour. So we hired former Rosaviakosmos engineer Igor Koroljow (just google him!). Igor's been one of the leading engineers in the secret part of the Buran program. Well, he literally build that fucker in his basement with his own hands. Anyway, Igor was really helpful and with his experience, his passion, his loyalty, enthusiasm, and his access to the right resources it was almost easy to create what you are about witness during the next shows (wherever we can build it up, we're not gonna take a risk, you know. This fucker is mean!). We had the vision of this Electric Hellhound long ago, but it was too dangerous. Remember, you have to be careful when playing high velocity Heavy Metal because there'll be mechanical fatigue, not to mention the emanation of coolness involved, so we also wanna thank Roy Plunkett for the polytetrafluoroethylene pieces in that regard. Without you the Electric Hellhound would be an electric polar bear, which wouldn't make a difference technically, but it doesn't sound as half as cool. So people, watch out: Cause I may ride the Electric Hellhound! It might be dangerous 'cause if you push the wrong button or kick down the pedal a millisecond too long you won't end up in the sky but in the year 2070. It's a fucking monster, and only the best can keep it under control! But I do it for you, the greatest fans in the world. Hail and kill! - Tobi

EDGUY GERMANY'S INTERNATIONAL NO. 1 BAND
Having hit the charts in more than ten European countries, Edguy have also made it to a remarkable position of #25 on the official worldwide sales Top-50 charts. The band has always been a global underground phenomenon. While mainstream media widely ignored the ambitious band, Edguy kept things firmly under control themselves and set out to build up a secret society of fans around the globe. For more than a decade the band has toured the world constantly, having played well over 500 shows in more than fourty countries on four continents. And now the global work has come to fruition: Edguy‘s newest album AGE OF THE JOKER has reached the highest position of a German band in the world album charts that week.

The individual chart positions so far read as follows:

Germany #3
Czech Republic #10
Sweden #10
Switzerland #13
UK (Rock) #14
Finland #15
Norway #26
Austria #30
Spain #44
France #63
Japan #74
Italy #79

Lead vocalist Tobias Sammet has issued the following statement:

"We're still rehearsing for the tour, we sound fantastic I think. Even the drummer. As for those chart figures: It's amazing, Nuclear Blast gave us a fortune to produce this album and it was enough to even buy all sorts of useless things on top of it. When they opened their wallets they did not know we'd come up with the best album since Back In Black. And now they even get some of their money back, fantastic! It seems like the assholes who dislike the album are just a minority (of maybe 6.9297 billion people worldwide, but that's a different story - it just proves that a lot of asses need to be kicked yet and we start the Convincing-the-world-that-Edguy-are-the-kings-of-metal-tour next Thursday in Malmö). Well, number 25 is not too bad, considering that when those figures were compiled the album wasn‘t even out in a lot of countries (e.g. Canada, USA...)... Jesus, aren‘t we great? God bless you, especially those who bought the album and also the fuckers who think we're a bunch of losers without talent. God loves you all! Bless you and see you on the road! - Tobi Wan Kenobi"

GET READY FOR EDGUY - ON STAGE!
After the amazing success of their newest album AGE OF THE JOKER (chart entries all over Europe and Japan, #3 in Germany) Germany's most successful Heavy Metal band since the 1980s - EDGUY get ready for what the fans have anticipated eagerly for months and years: The AGE OF THE JOKER TOUR. After several tours with Aerosmith and the Scorpions and stadium shows with the likes of Iron Maiden, Edguy are finally back on their own to bring the people what Edguy is known for: A full fledged, breathtaking headlining show with bad jokes, big lights, and their very own infamous stage production. On September 23rd the European leg of the tour will kick off in Malmö, Sweden. During the upcoming weeks Edguy will play Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Czech Republic and Italy.

The band has issued the following statement: "We are in the rehearsing room right now and the band is tight as always. After so many support tours it feels great to be headlining again. We are thankful for the experience to have been special guests of legends, such as the Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Ozzy or Aerosmith. But some people including ourselves may have almost forgotten, how many amazing world tours we had played on our own within the last ten years. So, it's time to grab our own explosives again, to load our own trucks, to bring our own lights and risers and the hell of a show. It may sound cheesy, but it is nothing but true: We are so so so extremely ready to kick your asses! You better come with a cushion squeazed in your pants. We can't wait to hit the road and blow up the fucking roofs with you guys..."

Support acts for the tour will be Scorpions drummer James Kottak and his band KOTTAK and for some shows Swedish Power Metal act FULLFORCE, featuring members and ex-members of Hammerfall.
