The album, that Rage recorded together with the Lingua Mortis Orchestra in 1998 became an all time metal classic. Now the band have announced, that – for the first time ever – they will play the album live in full together with the orchestra. This exclusive show will come to select festival stages in Europe over the summer; the only show in Germany will be at Wacken Open Air 2019.
Peavy Wagner comments:
As we toured in Winter 1997/98 with the Lingua Mortis Orchestra, the “XIII” album was not released yet and even in later live shows we never managed to play this metal classic in its full length, so it makes me more than proud that we can finally realize this project now, more than two decades later.
The premiere of the show at 70000 Tons Of Metal was extremely successful. Parallel to the exclusive festival shows there will be a re-release with an extended version of the album, featuring previously unreleased demos and the record will also be available on vinyl for the first time ever!
Catch the show live at one of the following festivals:
5.7. – Rockfest Barcelona, Spain
13.7. – Masters of Rock, Czech Republic
3.8. – Wacken Open Air, Germany
Stay tuned for more!
