I've played there before, it's a big venue, and I hope the Italians will turn out in numbers." The gig in Italy will follow the one on Saturday, December 17 in Burgdorf, Switzerland, another country GREEN CARNATION never has played before. "Yeah, it's certainly going to be an exciting weekend for the band," said Tchort.
