VIRGIN STEELE Singer: Athens Show Was A 'Most Glorious, Magical Experience'

VIRGIN STEELE vocalist David DeFeis has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Greetings, Salutations & Long Life to You All Noble Citizens of Hellas! Strange are the Ways of the World...Strange are the Winds, Clouds and other opportunistic weather Formations...

"Unfortunately due to circumstances far beyond our control, namely the rather bizarre weather conditions (Ice & Snow)...we were unable to travel with all of our equipment to Thessaloniki to perform for those of you who live there, or in the surrounding areas. I want you to know that we truly wished to perform for you, and we are seriously pissed off that we were not able to reach you! I also want you to know that we will return again, and we will play a very special concert for you, as soon as possible. Eternal Thanks for your Faith, Heart, Belief and Understanding...

"To those of you who attended the concert in Athens, I say...Cheers, & Etharisto Poli, for making this an incredibly Great Night to remember Forever!!! Your enthusiastic participation (Chanting, singing, stomping, leaping, diving, shouting...etc.), made the Evening a most Glorious, & Magickal experience for us, and we thank you sincerely for this! The An-Club truly overflowed with a massive amount of bodies and Extremely Powerful Energy! Thanks very much for the tremendous reception! We won't forget you.

"If all goes well we will be back in Greece again before the year is out, or at the very least by early next year. Meanwhile keep well, stay Invictus, and Royal Thanks for keeping the Spirit Of Steele Alive!!!"
