It was the Sensation of the year 2016. During the Hellbook production to celebrate HELLOWEEN’s 30th anniversary, the contributors came to realise that the chemistry in the band had always been unique – and that what belongs together needs to be together again. However, the birth of “PUMPKINS UNITED” wasn’t just an original line-up reunion, but the real deal. The ultimate cast consisting of all seven metal heroes: DERIS, KISKE, WEIKATH, HANSEN, GROSSKOPF, GERSTNER, and LÖBLE.
What followed, was a cry of joy from North Germany’s river Elbe to Rio’s Sugar Loaf Mountain, and the PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR with 69shows in front of more than one million people in 32 countries across three continents in Fall 2017. The band’s headline slots at Wacken, Rock Fest Barcelona and Masters of Rock, as well as their shows with Iron Maiden at the Sweden Rock Festival and Firenze Rocks, the revival was received enthusiastically, stages were set on fire, and tears were shed.
After dates in the US and additional shows in Latin America, this tour for the ages ended in December 2018 with a highly emotional finale in Hamburg, where it all began in 1984. – Unforgettable metal nights thatwe’d love to experience again and again.
The DVD/BLU-RAY nails the tour with recordings from Wacken in front of 75,000 metal heads and 14,000 fans in the Madrid arena – and as a bonus, the show in the Espaço das Américas, gathering 8,000 in São Paulo. Altogether it offers over three hours of live material in stereo and premium 5.1 surround sound, plus backstage material, tons of surprises, and a very personal band interview about the past, present, and future. The LIVE-CD/VINYL presents a whopping 2 hours 20 of pure audio material from the concert in Madrid plus four bonus tracks from the shows in Prague, São Paulo, Wacken, and Santiago de Chile.
