"...nevertheless, nothing of that would diminish the more than special participation in the festivities of a true living legend. Kai Hansen, former Helloween guitar player/singer and currently leading Gamma Ray, showed up on the stage to sing Temple Of Hate with the band. He was clearly amazed by the audience reaction to his presence and would come to the stage again to play guitar and sing during the execution of the Helloween hit I Want Out. People went nuts..."
A show for Buenos Aires, Argentina might be confirmed within the next days... stay tuned!

The gig will take place on August, 27th 2005 and NOT on the 28th like it was wrongly announced on the tour agency's homepage. Sorry for the confusion.
Besides, "Mägo de Oz"! will not play this show together with the Rays as they changed their management recently and decided to play Madrid only beginning of 2006.
The support for Gamma Ray's upcoming european tour has been confirmed: The bands Nocturnal Rites and Powerwolf will join The Rays on the road.
The GammaRay show in Slovakia on October 1st 2005 which was supposed to take place in Banska Bystrica was moved to Zloven City, Sport Hall.

STOP!, do not get me wrong, of course Henjo will NOT join Motörhead. But he will play with the Motörhead Coverband "Nö Class" on a special festival on the occasion of Motörhead's 30th anniversary. The event will take place on July 23rd at Knust, Neuer Kamp 30, Hamburg. Do not miss it as the other Rays (although not playing) might be there as well...
On June 1st and 2nd Gamma Ray were shooting photos for the new album Majestic.
The photos were taken by the well-known photographer Stefan Malzkorn. The location for the first day was the studio of german comedian Dirk Bielefeld, also known as "Mr. Holm". The band was dressed in black with golden instruments.
For the second day, the location was the big festival room of Atlantic Hotel Hamburg to provide a real majestic atmosphere.
Soon we will have some pix here on the site... The coverartwork by Herve has also been finished, only some slight changes still have to be done by Henjo before we can put it on the site. So stay tuned...
