STRATOVARIUS frontman Timo Kotipelto has posted the following message on his official web site:"I just wanted to info you guys about what I am doing right now... "The STRATO tours (South America, Middle America and now North America) have been going more than well! We have played to a lot of awesome fans and the band is in its best live condition ever! "Right now I am sitting on the bus in Quebec City, Canada and it's one hour to the show time. So I guess I have to start warming up soon... "It's been a pleasure to meet a lot of fans once again and I've been doing some touristic action with Lauri [Porra, STRATOVARIUS bassist], checking out the new cities and filming some material for the screens that we are using while playing live. "Anyways, I want to thank all the people who came to see the shows for the excellent singing and the support and would like to welcome the rest of the fans to see the shows that are still yet to be played! "See ya on the road!"
