Rhapsody – 20th Anniversary Farewell Tour

21. November 2016

rhapsody of fire band 2016Great news for symphonic power metal lovers. Almost complete classical lineup of Rhapsody will prepare special tour to commemorate the 20th Anniversary from their album Symphony of Enchanted Lands.


Luca Turilli states (quoted from Fabio Lione’s facebook profile):

“I am really super excited to be part of this unique and special event together with Fabio and my other friends. The fact of playing legendary songs like ‘Wings Of Destiny’, ‘Beyond The Gates Of Infinity’ and ‘The Dark Tower Of Abyss’, never played on stage before, will be the best way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary and a great reason to meet together for a very last time. This farewell tour represents for me the closing of one important chapter of my music career, as in the future I will dedicate myself to the cinematic music style of my new ‘Luca Turilli’s RHAPSODY’ band and to other important projects exclusively. Don’t miss such amazing event. It will be the last time you will be able to see me, Fabio and Alex Holzwarth together on stage playing some Rhapsody songs. We wait for all of you to share some wonderful emotions and live together some memorable nights!”
