HAMMERFALL Bassist Helps Feed The Hungry On South American Tour

HAMMERFALL bassist Magnus Rosèn recently completed a South American solo bass tour, with all proceeds going to homeless children. Starting on October 10, Rosèn visited Peru, Brazil and Chile, where he played songs from his three solo albums and conducted bass clinics for his fans.

"I wanted to share my positive feelings about helping the poor with others," Magnus said in a statement. "I gave all the money I earned with the tour to poor people, they got 100 percent. I paid all my flights on my own in order to collect more money for them — not one cent went in my pocket."

The concerts were reportedly a great success; people were able to purchase tickets with money or food, thus allowing Magnus to collect more than a ton of food for the poor. He brought the food to the slums of Peru personally and still remembers the shocking situation very well. "It was horrible under which circumstances these people have to live," he said. "However, I am glad to have made them happy and helped them a bit. It would have been impossible without the support of all the fans, which came to my bass shows. Thanks a lot to all of you! Together we have helped others. Isn't it fantastic?"
