In May of 2012 Blutengel fans in North America got their prayers answered for the first time as Chris, Ulli, Gordon, and the rest of the team flew across the Atlantic to begin a limited engagement tour celebrating the release of "Nachtbringer" and "Tranenherz". With stops in Mexico City, New York, Texas, California, and Canada, fans flew/drove/took the train from all corners of the continent in order to catch a glimpse and possibly meet their idols (some fans traveled over 20 hours to make it to a show!).
2013 is a new year and Blutengel are celebrating the release of their new singles "Save our Souls", "You Walk Away", and album "Monument". A tour has been put together and so far no North American dates have been announced.

The purpose of this petition is to get enough signatures from fans in North America to hopefully bring about the return of Blutengel, and open up the possibility for more dates and venues around the continent. The more fans that sign this petition, the more support we show, the more we spread the music of Blutengel, and the more we actively inquire at venues, the more likely we are to get them to come back.
The logistics of putting together a
tour a whole hemisphere away include transportation across the Atlantic
(hopefully passports don't need to be renewed), room and board while
abroad, transportation while abroad, they have to eat and stay hydrated,
the cost of multiple venues, cost of shipping merchandise (and hoping
it arrives to the venue on time), cost of shipping any props - remember
most of the venues were clubs and not open air sites so that means no
pyrotechnics at shows. And I'm sure there are plenty more things that
need to be sorted and figured out well before any dates are planned.
Now factor in how many people will be traveling, getting paid, etc. and
you have a tour that costs so much money with only a few dates, that
tickets sold alone cannot cover the cost of such an undertaking. Remember, this is a performer's livelihood - this is how they pay their bills!
So I am asking each and every fan of Blutengel/Terminal Choice/Tumor/Miss Construction/Seelenkrank/Pain of Progress/Chris, Ulli, Gordon/etc. to sign this petition and show them the love they deserve... and in turn hopefully they will pursue a tour in North America a second time.
Please sign and spread this petition, and spread the music of Blutengel.
