During this rehearsal the young musicians, between 13 and 19 years of age, practiced songs from their standard repertoire as well, for the first time ever, MANOWAR songs which they will be playing during their first performance in front of a metal audience.

“Relax! Have fun!” DeMaio said to the orchestra. “Play loud! Play from your heart! That is the most important. Kick ass and don’t be afraid of anything!” DeMaio reassured the young adults.

Joining the rehearsals were also local performers vocalist Mari Lunde and guitarist and vocalist Kjartan Øvrehus who will be performing the MANOWAR song “Father” in Norwegian, along with RUSO orchestra.

“This is very different and new for us. We are all very excited about this collaboration!” said RUSO CEO Sindre Lyslo. “Families and friends of our musicians are of course planning to attend the show. This is going to be a big thing for everybody!”

“We are proud to have these young musicians with us on our exclusive Norwegian show on this tour, and give them a platform to experience a large audience. We are sure the performers and audience will have a great time!” said Joey DeMaio.

It is with much regret that we must report that our previously announced concerts scheduled to take place in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest (on February 19 and 21 2016, respectively) are officially cancelled due to lack of contractually agreed payment by the promoter.

While MANOWAR always does the maximum possible to attend the demand of their fans to go to their cities, it is impossible for the band to bring such massive productions without a reliable partner in their country, who respects their contractual financial commitments.

We urge all fans who bought tickets for these shows to immediately contact their original point of purchase to obtain a full refund. Promoters S.C. PROJECT EVENTS S.R.L. may also be contacted for refunds via phone (031-4329187) or website (http://www.projectevents.ro/contact).

All other shows of the Gods And Kings World Tour 2016 will take place as scheduled.

After the great success during their Essen (Germany) show in January 2015 where a 100-piece youth orchestra performed a set of classical and MANOWAR songs, MANOWAR will once again give young classical musicians their stage to play in front of the greatest fans in the world, the Manowarriors.

Norway’s RUSO orchestra (Rogaland Youth Symphony Orchestra) will open MANOWAR’s show on February 2nd, 2016 in Stavanger’s Konserthus.

“There is so much that unites true metal and classical music: The love for a massive, larger-than-live sound. An unparalleled passion for your music, no matter what others say! And the prejudice that these genres are often met with! Just look how many meanwhile celebrated classical composers were treated during their lifetime!” said Joey DeMaio. “We want to give new musicians confidence and show everybody that classical music is cool!” said DeMaio, who personally travelled to Stavanger to meet with representatives of the orchestra and kick off the project.

Members of the RUSO orchestra will play pieces from their repertoire, as well as some of MANOWAR’s classical songs.

“The RUSO orchestra was founded in 2004 with the goal to inspire and motivate children and young adults who play a classical instrument to play even more, and to let everybody feel the unique bond of playing in an orchestra – no matter if they want to become professionals, amateur musicians or just lovers of classical music,” explained Sindre Lyslo, co-founder of RUSO and an accomplished violin teacher and violinist himself. “We are very excited and honored about this opportunity to play for MANOWAR’s following!”

The “Gods And Kings World Tour 2016“ will celebrate Kings Of Metal MMXIV, which many fans haven’t had a chance to experience live yet, as well as the upcoming anniversary of Gods Of War, which was unleashed on the world in 2007. The set list will be packed with fan favorites from both albums, plus many other classics and special surprises.
