THE IDEA.
UNDISPUTEDLY, HELLOWEEN ARE ONE OF GERMANY’S MOST RESPECTED METAL EXPORTS AND CONSIDERED THE FOUNDERS OF GERMAN MELODIC SPEED METAL. AS GODFATHERS OF THE GENRE, THEY HAVE GROWN TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL METAL BANDS OF THE PLANET. IN AN UNBELIEVABLE CAREER REACHING BACK AS FAR AS 1984, HELLOWEEN HAVE PERFORMED AT INNUMERABLE METAL FESTIVALS AROUND THE GLOBE SUCH AS ROCK IN RIO, LOUDPARK IN TOKYO, WACKEN, OR THE WOODSTOCK IN POLAND, WHICH THEY HEADLINED IN FRONT OF OVER 500,000 FANS.
THE BAND HAS DELIVERED COUNTLESS HEADLINER WORLD TOURS, SPECTACULAR SHOWS WITH THE LIKES OF IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH, DIO, SLAYER, OR OZZY OSBOURNE TO NAME JUST A FEW, AND PLAYED AT EXOTIC LOCATIONS IN BORNEO, INDONESIA, MANAUS, BRAZIL, OR, AT OVER 10,600 FT IN THE WORLD’S HIGHEST CAPITAL, LA PAZ, BOLIVIA. THE BAND’S SPECTACULAR SHOW AT THE »MONSTERS OF ROCK« FESTIVAL IN CASTLE DONINGTON IN FRONT OF OVER 100,000 METAL HEADS IN 1988 WAS JUST AS MEMORABLE AS THE MASSIVE MTV »HEADBANGER’S BALL« US TOUR WITH ANTHRAX AND EXODUS. INCLUDING GENRE MASTERPIECES »KEEPER OF THE SEVEN KEYS« PART I & II, THEY’VE RELEASED 15 STUDIO- AND THREE LIVE ALBUMS TO DATE, SELLING OVER EIGHT MILLION RECORDS AND EARNING FOURTEEN GOLD AND SIX PLATINUM AWARDS. FOR 30 YEARS, HELLOWEEN HAVE BEEN DELIGHTING THEIR FANS WITH FANTASTIC RIFFS, GREAT SONGS, AND HAUNTING MELODIES – THREE DECADES OF A GLOBAL CAREER THEY OFFICIALLY CELEBRATED WITH THE »HELLBOOK« IN 2015. THIS IS WHEN THE IDEA FOR PUMPKINS UNITED WAS BORN: THE ‘ANNIVERSARY BIBLE’ AS WELL AS TOURING WITH KAI MADE THEM REALIZE THAT THIS BAND’S STORY IS DEMANDING ITS NEXT CHAPTER. OR, AS MICHAEL KISKE DESCRIBES IT: »PLAYING AN ORIGINAL HELLOWEEN TRACK WITH UNISONIC WAS QUITE A FLASHBACK ALREADY, BUT ROCKING WITH THE ORIGINAL LINE-UP AND ANDI WILL BE SOMETHING REALLY SPECIAL. THE TIME HAS COME!« THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN KISKE, HANSEN, WEIKATH, AND GROSSKOPF IS SINGULAR – AND SEES ITS REVIVAL NOT LEAST BECAUSE OF YOU: YOU’VE NEVER STOPPED ASKING FOR IT – NOW THE MEGA EVENT IS COMING UP LIVE, WITH THE COMPLETE CAST, AND HEAVILY WIRED!

IN DETAIL.
THE SUPER TOUR’S FIRST CONFIRMED DATE IS OCTOBER 28, 2017 IN SAO PAULO AND TAKES THE FULL PUMPKINS ENTOURAGE ACROSS SELECTED CITIES AND VENUES IN LATIN AMERICA, EUROPE, ASIA, AND THE US. AN EXTREMELY BIG DEAL, WHICH, INCLUDING A FEW SECRET SURPRISES, WILL PRESENT ALMOST THREE HOURS OF THE BIGGEST HITS FROM THREE DECADES OF HELLOWEEN AS THE BAND WILL OBVIOUSLY INSIST ON PERFORMING A FULLSPEED TRIP THROUGH THE HELLOWEEN REPERTOIRE. »WE ALREADY HAD AN AWESOME TIME ON THE HELLISH ROCK PART 1 & 2, BUT THIS TIME WE’LL DEFINITELY DOUBLE DOWN ON IT« SAYS KAI HANSEN, AND MARKUS GROSSKOPF ADDS: »THERE’LL FOR SURE BE SONGS THAT WE HAVEN’T PLAYED IN A VERY LONG TIME OR EVEN EVER BEFORE.« WHOEVER DOESN’T SECURE TICKETS FOR THIS TOUR, PROBABLY DOESN’T HAVE ALL THEIR PUMPKINS IN A ROW: THE ORIGINAL LINE-UP WANTS TO CELEBRATE A GLOBAL PARTY WITH YOU, WHICH IS ALSO GOING TO BE HIGHLY EMOTIONAL BECAUSE THIS SPECIAL WORLD TOUR IS ACTUALLY NOT A REUNION AND MOST PROBABLY WON’T HAPPEN AGAIN. ANDI CHANNELS OUR METAL HEARTS WHEN HE SAYS: »I’M SO MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING MICHI’S AND MY TUNES TOGETHER WITH HIM LIVE ON STAGE. IT’S GOING TO BE ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL.« – AND NOW: BREATHE.

So this was announced a while ago but i havent seen a post about it so, might as well!

So lets start things off with the fact that Kai And Kiske are back for this, fucking historic, can't wait to see them here in Costa Rica.

https://www.helloween.org/helloween

So, recently they released a video on instagram of Andi talking about the tour and stuff and something quite interesting caught my eye.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BXYfVQPje4P/?taken-by=helloweenofficial

So, That board behind Andi reads:
Starlight, Gorgar, Push, Eagle, Dr. Stein. Don't Spit, Gentleman, Halloween, Victim, Invisible Man, I am?, In The Middle, Tale, Kings Will Be Kings, Save Us, Keeper, I'm Alive, Kids, End Songs?, Encore.

Now, That for a setlist is pretty killer but its missing some classics like Future World, Power and Where The Rain Grows, Crazy to see Kings Will be Kings And In The Middle Of A Heartbeat on that, alot of Kais Era which is exciting.

This Is Gonna Be Awesome.

So, about that in the quote block in the OP... where did you find that, and how long ago? On their website that you linked there are no dates in the US, but that quote states they are playing in the US.

If this does make it to the US,I doubt they'll play more than 3 or 4 cities.

So, the tour has begun In Mexico.

Saw them in Costa Rica 2 days ago and It was the best day of my fucking life.

Kiske was or is apparently sick so the setlist is stripped down.

Also, they announced North America Tour Dates.

Here Are the Dates.

Aaaaaaand, the setlist:https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/helloween/2017/escena-monterrey-mexico-be3c13a.html

Thats the one in the first show but since Kiske's been Ill they Left out Kids of the Century, Rise and Fall, and Livin' Ain't No Crime / A Little Time.

What I love is their playing "Why?" First time since 96...and with Kiske!

OK,so I was off by 1.
Well damn,I guess I will have to get to that Chicago show some how.
It sucks that even reuniniting with Kiske can't get them more than a hand full of shows booked in the States.
