Official Announcements

06.09.2016  Kosta Zafiriou leaving Unisonic as drummer

kosta-pressebild2016-smallIt’s been a long journey, but now it’s time for a change in my personal life:

I’m making this official announcement that I have left UNISONIC and will no longer be performing as a professional drummer anymore.

Being busy with BOTTOM ROW over the last years – the management and booking agency I run with my two partners – I found it more and more difficult to keep up the physical condition needed to satisfy my own high expectations of how today´s powerful metal drumming should sound like. As a result, I had to realize that performing was not the fun it used to be, and the need for a change came into my mind.

Since my very first tour with PINK CREAM 69 back in 1989, I toured all over the world and played the biggest metal festivals – I thought I’d end it on a “high note” by letting the UNISONIC show Wacken 2016 be the final show of my drumming career. I will, of course, continue all my business activities and remain UNISONIC’s manager with all my power & passion.

I want to thank my current bandmates in UNISONIC and  the former ones in PINK CREAM 69: It was a pleasure and an honor to make music with you guys!

06.10.2014  Michael Kiske injured on stage

michaelkiskeSadly, on the 4th of October in Kaufbeuren, Germany, Michael Kiske had an accident right before the last song of UNISONIC´s set.

After a jump, he twisted his knee and fell on the side. The result is a cruciate ligament rupture which the doctors say will take a while to recover from. Fortunately, Michael puts his fans before his pain and will continue the current tour with EDGUY, no matter what the costs.  Although he will not be able to move on stage, Michael says he’s happy that he still can sing for the fans during the next shows. So, don’t fret!  The show will go on and we, the band UNISONIC, are very glad about this!

 

See you all on the road – rock on!

 

18.09.2014  To the Korean Unisonic fans

Unfortunately we received several mails from Korean fans telling us they have problems returning the Unisonic concert tickets for the cancelled show. Also we were told, the promoter is blaming the band for the cancellation.

Please note that we deeply apologize the cancellation, band & management tried everything possible to play the show in Seoul!
Due to heavy breach of contract and basically zero communication from promoter´s side, we finally had to cancel.

In fact we booked our flight tickets from Japan to Seoul a long time ago, but due to a missing proper invitation we did not even have any visa to enter Korea and had to stay in transit area. Besides us losing some serious money for airfares and crew, we are very sad to hear you, the fans, have problems to get your money back!

We hope we can make up for this in the near future with a great show in Seoul!
