KAMELOT Guitarist Issues Update

KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood has issued the following update:

"Back in sunny and way-too-HOT Florida for 10 short days before heading back to Italia!

"The shows in the Netherlands, Russia and Spain were amazing for us. Starting with the Fields of Rock in the Netherlands.

"We arrived on the festival area to some rain and were quickly taken to the stage were we going to play at. There we met the pyros guys who weren't sure if we could use the flame projectors we brought in. The festival organizers finally gave the approval and the fun began.

"The Dutch fans and fans from Belgium have been amazing over the years and after the sold-out shows earlier in the year we were met again with a loud and energetic audience.

"We are planning the two VERY SPECIAL concerts for you fans in The Netherlands this September.

"After meeting hundreds of the fans at the signing session, we watched a little IRON MAIDEN and headed back to Amsterdam for our flight to Russia. After lots of running around with local taxi drivers we arrived in Moscow and were greeted by having no guitars!! My ESPs were nowhere to be found. So we had a plan to use the opening band's guitars. Thanks guys!! 10 minutes before showtime we had the guitars delivered; they were stuck earlier in Amsterdam.

"The Moscow fans were amazing, loud, generous and we already have plans to return as soon as possible. One of the fans gave me a snowglobe that read on the bottom, 'One Cold Winter's Night in Moscow.'

"Ironically my daughter collects snow globes so its was even more special.

"The next day we went to Red Square and had a great time with our new friends in Moscow. From there we headed to Spain, we landed in Madrid and hung out for two days until heading to Zaragoza. We met with Rocky and Pako, thanks to you both for your help!

"The festival was run great, the stage was perfect in size and since it has been quite a while since we have been in Spain we were excited about playing in front of the Spanish fans.

"The intro started and the mayhem began, its was amazing, Ole' Ole' Ole' Ole' was chanted several times during the set and we are now ready to return to Spain for headliner shows this October!! GET READY!!"
