ARCH ENEMY Singer Says Sunrise GIGANTOUR Show Was Filmed For Upcoming DVD

ARCH ENEMY frontwoman Angela Gossow has posted the following message on her MySpace page:

"Although the Gigantour isn't over yet (we will be meeting up with MEGADETH, LAMB OF GOD and OPETH in Japan and Australia again), I got the 'end-of-tour' blues. I had to say goodbye to a lot of wonderful people already. I am sitting in a stupid hotel room at Orlando airport. I feel lonely, I miss the tour bus and always having somebody around. No laughter and music pouring through the aircon whilst I am trying to fall asleep. This room isn't moving. And it is way too big for me. I can't relax here.

"I want to be in Japan NOW. And I don't really want to go back to Sweden. I don't miss 'home' anymore. I don't need four rooms, stuffed wardrobes, cupboards and a big TV. I never owned a car anyway. All I need to be well fits into one bag. No drama, no worries, just the road, the bus, the venue, cool people.

"The last couple of days were intense. We had the guitar contest winner R. Kelly (yes, this is REALLY his name! Ryan Kelly!) on stage with us in Tampa, Florida. He is 17 years old, from Seattle. And nailed that 'Ravenous' solo without throwing up or fainting on stage. I would have done both simultaneously. This young man has nerves of steel!

"The Gigantour crew finally shot the live footage for the upcoming DVD in Sunrise, Florida. We gave it all, so it should turn out killer!

"Orlando was the last Gigantour show in the U.S. We have almost a week off now until Loud Park festival, Tokyo. I thought I'd give it all and scream my voice to pieces that night. I really went for it, but didn't succeed. My voice doesn't even have a scratch. I have been absolutely careless with my voice on this tour. Drinking wine and sitting up talking nonsense to 5 in the morning. No voice rest. Fuck all this. My voice is doing better than ever. I hope Melissa [Cross, Angela's vocal coach] isn't reading this.

"To everybody I met at the shows/signings, shared dressing rooms, thoughts and drinks with: Thank you for being so nice and patient with me! I have had a wonderful time in the U.S. … again! I love your friendliness, passion and your wholefoods markets! I will miss you A LOT!"
