Reunited HELLOWEEN Announce 2020 European Tour Dates

Written by Jovan Ristić

German power metal veterans HELLOWEEN together with two members of the band’s legendary 80’s lineup, Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen, are set to continue the success the band has seen with their last “Pumpkins United World Tour” that has seen the band headline arena shows throughout the globe.

Looking back to the legendary Pumpkins United World Tour – named by the press the “tour of the year” – everyone still has a big smile on his face. Even if CD, DVD and Blu-ray present stunning contemporary documents – nobody wants to imagine that this is all there is.


“The Pumpkins United World Tour 2017 – 2019 forged us into a real band. We are all very keen to record a new studio album now. Artistically it’s extremely thrilling,“ states Helloween singer Andi Deris. Back in 2018 Deris stated in an interview with Hardwired that the chance of band staying together in this lineup is a definite possibility, claiming “it would be a great future option which I am sure we take if the bands´ chemistry stays as great as it is no

The Pumpkins United lineup entered the Home studios in Hamburg to work on brand new song material. The same recording console used for albums such as “Master of The Rings”, “Time of the Oath” or “Better than Raw” is now being used to record a new legendary studio album – analogue and deliberately “back to the roots”. With Michael Kiske, Kai Hansen and Dani Löble drumming on Ingo Schwichtenberg’s original drum kit, one thing is for sure: a stronger Helloween-Vibe won’t be possible! Produced by Charlie Bauerfeind and Dennis Ward, the new & yet untitled album will see the light of day end of August or beginning of September 2020.


In September 2020, the legendary United Lineup will be unleashed again: Stronger, with the new song material and a ton of horsepower. You can view the list of dates below:
