THANKS, ASIA – HI, FESTIVALS!
Asia, it was unbelievable. 8 shows in 12 days, 3 of which in Tokyo. Plenty of euphoric fans and sold-out venues, delighted journalists, and at the finish 30,000 Indonesian Pumpkinheads at the show @ Kukar Rocking Festival. And then, the whole thing was topped off by an invitation by sultan Haji Adji Salehuddin II of Kutai Kartanegara ing Martadipura of Borneo: After the official ceremony with dance, meal and swords as gifts for the whole band, you could consider it more than enough events for one metal summer. But far from it: In 2013, the expression ‘break’ simply doesn’t exist in the Helloween universe.
