German power metal founders HELLOWEEN have announced the second leg of their “Pumpkins United” tour in Latin America featuring the return of their classic lineup members Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen. The band will be joined by their countrymen from KREATOR and Swedish melodic death metal masters ARCH ENEMY. So far, the band has announced only one show to be held on Halloween night, October 31st at the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile.
In an exclusive interview with Hardwired Magazine, singer Andi Deris revealed the band is looking to adding more songs on the second part of the tour, stating: “We comfort ourselves with the idea of a next tour. Then we are going to play this or that song which we miss on the present tour.” Singer also revealed the band plans to return to Europe and play cities they’ve missed on the first leg of the tour. “So far we were only playing the biggest cities which also were not too close to the summer festivals we are going to play. After the US and Canada, we will be back for more in Europe.”
German power metal veterans HELLOWEEN reunited with former members Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen last year for a special tour dubbed “Pumpkins United”. The seven-piece released a brand new song aptly titled “Pumpkins United”, the first one after 30 years to feature both Kiske and Hansen alongside current members including Andi Deris, guitarists Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner, bass player Markus Grosskopf and drummer Dani Löble.
