27.11.2005 - Vienna 2005 »

Soon PERSEPHONE revisit Vienna to play once more in an extraordinary location. We hope to see you there. After the concert PERSEPHONE played at Wernigerode there are some impressions added to the gallery.


« 10.11.2005 - Make sure you'll keep warm!!

The preparations for the concert at Schloss Wernigerode are heading towards its peak now. PERSEPHONE are looking forward to perform some songs together with singer Rig of JANUS such as "Coming Home". Being one of the founder of PERSEPHONE he was acting both as a producer and songwriter for the debut album "Home". Back in 2002 there already have been some duet-performances between Rig and Sonja which now are going to be revived exclusively in the impressing ambience of the castle's chapel. By the way: The chapel will be heated but most probably will not be too warm so if you come and visit the concert make sure you're dressed warm enough.

As we were told the presale for this concert is running pretty well and most of the tickets have been sold so if you do not own a ticket yet but want to visit the concert you should get them in advance. Contact 0049 (0) 3943 - 62 54 93 or info@ticketcenter-wernigerode.de to order you ticket.
