KAMELOT mainman Thomas Youngblood (guitar) has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"We are coming off two amazing shows here in Brazil. The fans here deserve their reputation of being the loudest and craziest in the world. Over 3,000 fans at the Via Funchal in Sao Paulo sang along with us all night. It was a night to remember for all of us. Next night was also as amazing in Rio. We played an open air arena and once again the night was magical. Mark Janssen from EPICA came on stage with us for 'March of Mephisto' and jumped into the crowd at the end. He disappeared into the abyss for several minutes and lost most of his clothes ;) We have to say 'Obrigado, Brazil' and we will be back very soon on a longer tour of your great country."
