Helloween postpone release of new album to early 2021 and European Tour 2020 to April-June 2021

German power metal rockers Helloweenย consisting of lead vocalists Andi Deris and Michael Kiske; guitarists Michael Weikath, Kai Hansen and Sascha Gerstner; bassist Markus Grosskopf and drummer Dani Lรถble have announced that they are delaying the release of their yet to be titled new studio album until early 2021 and they are also postponing their United Alive Part II European Tour 2020 from September-November 2020 to April-June 2021.

The following message was posted on Helloween‘s Facebook page earlier todayย (with slight edits):

“๐ŸŽƒ With a heavy heart we herewith announce that we are forced to postpone our United Alive Part 2 European Tour 2020. Initially scheduled to take place from the end of September until mid of November 2020, we now rescheduled the tour from April to June 2021. Tickets will remain valid, please see the new dates below.

This never seen before pandemic challenges all of us, and we feel the risk of a contamination is still way too high. Besides, the national regulations of the individual countries make the execution of the tour in its entity very uncertain.

A Helloweenย concert should be a gathering of all fans having fun, enjoying themselves by celebrating the music we all love. The current situation worldwide does not allow such an unconcerned manner yet. We also decided to shift the release of our yet untitled new album to early next year. The production is on the home stretch: The mixing, by Ronald Prent in New York, is working to the fullest.

๐Ÿ—ฏ Andi Deris: “We are super proud of the result and can ฬt wait to celebrate the new songs together with our fans live – but we all need to be a bit more patient. Health comes first!!”

Please be safe and stay healthy – obeying the rules will get us through these surreal times.
