HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY: First Two European Dates Leaked

Two European dates have been leaked for the much-anticipated "Hellish Rock" tour featuring HELLOWEEN and GAMMA RAY:

Nov. 16 - Budapest, HUN @ Petöfi Hall
Dec. 21 - Langen, GER @ Stadthalle

The trek will kick off mid-November and will include one or two additional acts.

Apart from very few festival appearances, this will be the first time ever HELLOWEEN and GAMMA RAY have toured together. In addition, it is extremely likely that Kai HansenGAMMA RAY leader and ex-HELLOWEEN member — will join his former bandmates for a jam on classic HELLOWEEN numbers.

Commented HELLOWEEN guitarist Michael Weikath: "This is going to be a historical event for all HELLOWEEN fans. We are looking forward to have Kai and his band on our tour with us."

Plans also exist to take this powerful package to the territories of Southeast Asia, as well as North and South America.

HELLOWEEN recently entered singer Andi Deris' Mi Sueno Studios in Tenerife, Spain to resume the recording sessions for its new album with longtime producer Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, SAXON). Tentatively titled "Gambling with the Devil", HELLOWEEN's 12th studio LP is scheduled for release on Halloween (October 31).
