It was The Sensation of the year 2016. During the Hellbook production to celebrate Helloween’s 30th anniversary, the contributors came to realize 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.

A very special summer season, not only due to the tropical heat, is slowly coming to an end: Festivals have been rocked so hard that we would’ve been sweating even if mercury hadn’t been on a permanent high.

Among the massive Pumpkins United World Tour’s open air highlights were, of course, the headline slots at Wacken, Barcelona’s Rock Fest and Masters of Rock – but also the mega gigs with Iron Maiden at Sweden Rock Festival and Florence’s Firenze Rocks in June were definitely shows we’ll remember for all eternity. Thanks to everyone who has been with us until now!
