Helloween To Be Rejoined By Michael Kiske & Kai Hansen On “Pumpkins United” Tour

Helloween have announced that they will be joined by former members Michael Kiskse and Kai Hansen on their 2017-2018 world tour, which they are calling “Pumpkins United.” They will perform with the band’s current lineup, Michael Weikath, Markus Grosskopf, Andi Deris, Sascha Gerstner, and Dani Löble, who are planning three hour sets composed of tracks spanning their entire career. So far the group have been booked for one show on October 28, 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but there will be more shows added in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the U.S. as well.

Grosskopf said the following:

“There’ll for sure be songs that we haven’t played in a very long time or even ever before. Whoever doesn’t secure tickets for this tour probably doesn’t have all their pumpkins in a row,”

Deris added:

“I’m so much looking forward to playing Michi’s and my tunes together with him live onstage. It’s going to be absolutely exceptional.”
