Tonight Avantasia are entering a battle to secure a place in… Eurovision 2016 final, which is going to be held in Stockholm on May 14th. Tobias Sammet’s band will have to face 9 artists on a 2-rounds voting procedure with Alex Diehl and Jamie Lee Kriewitz presented as the most likely to win (ed, we wouldn’t hold our breath about that, we just read it somewhere). The song that they will be playing in the german preliminary contest is “Mystery Of A Blood Red Rose” from their recent studio album “Ghostlights”. The German final will be aired live by German public TV, while their support to Avantasia expressed Axxis, and Swedes Hammerfall so far.
