It now takes place from 22.10.03 to 05.12.03. Of course the tickets you've bought already won't lose their validity. Here the confirmed dates and a backstage statement of Marek Lieberberg who's the event manager for the German dates.

The rest of the dates have been cofirmed by Interconcerts and they are as follows:

The European tour (eg. Paris / Elysee Momatre 27.11.2003) had to be postponed as well because of the postponed Ozzytour. But we are sorry, there is nothing fix yet. It will take place in January and February. At the moment Jägermeister-Band-Support is searching for a adequate supportband for the tour of HIM. Newcomerbands had the chance to apply therefor till the of September 2003.

The planned autographsession on monday, the 08 th of September 2003 in London ( Virgin Megastore 225-229 Picadilly W 17 9 HR Tel: 0207930 4208 / 4196) still takes place. The first 1000 fans will receive......

On the same day the new single "The Sacrament" comes out. More infos on that can be read on this site as well in the "newssection", look at yesterdays ( 06.09.2003) news.

Regarding the secret show in London: we only can tell u so much that it will take place in Camden Town infront of 200 people and that it will be a competition. Just look in the Kerrang mag or make sure that u have a eye at for more. Ofcourse we keep u infromed on this site as well as soon as it is official.

The German fans don't have to be sad about that as Jägermeister and PRO 7 (German TV - program) will provide such a competition, too. So don't worry, just check our "Jägermeisterreport" we published in here some weeks ago for more. We'll put in in here again soon.

The German Tour is still unclear at the moment. It should be in January 2004 together with some finnish gigs but it surely will change as well due to the Ozzytour thing...

The traditionel HIM gig on New Years Eve will take place as planned in the Tavastia Klub. Unfortunately u can't order any tickets from abroad except from but u should hurry up as they only have 100 packages to sell...

The next single on the european market will be "Buried Alive by Love" and the releasedate is 06.10.2003. Bam Margera will be the director again.

It is still unclear when HIM will perform the song at Top of the Pops but we'll keep u informed about that.

At the end one thing's left: Noone got "hurt" at the Terremotofestival. It was just a joke of Ville to call Gas a M...F....That's Villes way of making fun...


So we hope that we could give u at least a little overview of the whole ting what's going on. Don't worry, things will become right and good and we'll keep u informed.




Secret Gig:

the secret gig of HIM in London will take place in Camden town in front of 200 people only!!!

Die Europatour (z.B. Paris / Elysee Momatre am 27.11.2003)  muss aufgrund der verschobenen Ozzytour ebenfalls verschoben werden. Allerdings ist  da noch nichts konkretes raus. Im Moment sucht Jägermeister-Band-Support noch nach der geeingneten Supportband für die HIM tour. Dafür konnten sich Nachwuchsbands bis gestern, also Donnerstag, den 05.September bewerben.

Am Montag, den 08.09.2003 findet die angesagte Autogrammstunde in London (Virgin Megastore Picadilly um 18:00 Uhr) auf alle Fälle statt! Die ersten 100 Fans erhalten eine sexy coffin bos im Sacrament - Format, die ihr euch dort auch von Ville & Co signieren lassen könnt!!!

Am selben Tag erscheint die Single für die UK "The Sacrament". Mehr Infos zu der Single findet ihr ebenfalls hier in der "News Section" unter dem heutigen Datum.

Zu dem Geheimkonzert in London können wir nur so viel sagen, dass es ein Gewinnspiel geben wird. Guckt einfach in der Zeitschrift Kerrang oder unter nach da werdet ihr dann näheres dazu erfahren, sobald es offiziell ist. Natürlich halten wir euch auch auf dem Laufenden. Die deutschen Fans brauchen nicht traurig zu sein denn Jägermeister und PRO 7 werden ebenfalls ein solches Gewinnspiel veranstalten (wir berichteten und stellen euch den Bericht darüber gerne nocheinmal rein den könnt ihr dann morgen auf der Page lesen). Vorab nur nochmal soviel am 29. 09.2003 gut aufpassen vielleicht habt ihr ja Glück, ne?

Was die  Deutschlandtour betrifft die sollte im Januar stattfinden allerdings kann sich auch das aufgrund der ganzen Verschiebungen ändern. Im Januar sind / waren auch ein paar Auftritte in Finnland geplant.

Das traditionelle Silvester Konzert im Tavastia Klub findet wie gewohnt statt. Leider könnt ihr keine Tickets aus dem Ausland bestellen aber über da solltet ihr euch allerdings beeilen da die nur 100 Pakete dieser Art zu vergeben haben.

Die nächste Single die in Europa auf den Markt kommt erscheint am 06.10.2003 und wird "Buried Alive by Love" sein. Bam Margera übernimmt wieder die Regie...

Heute könnt ihr um 17:45 Uhr bei Top of the Pops auf RTL einen flash mit Ville sehen. Wann genau HIM bei Top of the Pops auftreten werden ist noch unklar, erst wenn die Single rauskommt. Aber wir geben euch vorher bescheid.

Und zum Schluss noch: Auf dem Terremotofestival wurde niemand ernsthaft beleidigt. Das ist eben Villes Art Spaß zu machen...

So, wir hoffen euch ein wenig Überblick über dieses Durcheinander verschafft zu haben, zumindest was den jetzigen Stand anbelangt...

HIM - neue Single in den Startlöchern!

Am 06.10.03 wird die dritte Single "Buried Alive By Love" aus dem Nummer Eins-Album "Love Metal" im Handel stehen. Im Gegensatz zu "The Funeral Of Hearts" und "The Sacrament", ziehen die Finnen hier ganz andere "Saiten" auf.

Ein überfallartiges Riff eröffnet die etwa vierminütige Reise durch die düstere Seele des Ville Valo, der den Song in gewohnt prägnanter Weise durch seine dunkle, variable Stimme prägt und sich ein wahres Duell mit der Instrumentalfraktion liefert. Mit dieser Art des emotional bestimmten Songwritings erkämpften sich HIM den Ruf als eine derjenigen europäischen Bands, die dem Rock wieder Seele einhauchen. Und das nicht nur im Studio, sondern auch live auf der Bühne.

Programmänderung bei Schattenreich TV

Folgende News aus dem Schattenreich-Lager:

"Die Hitze hat auch das Schattenreich gepackt ...
Trotzt des Tropenklimas gehen wir jede Woche mit viel Engagement und Begeisterung an die Gestaltung der Sendung ran. Kalte Getränke und mal ein Eis von der Diele neben an helfen dabei natürlich, um auch durch zu halten.
Aber - wer kann damit schon rechnen - die Technik macht uns einen Strich durch die Rechnung! Bei 38° im Schatten (... und mindestens 45°im Studio ...) hat sich doch tatsächlich das Equipment für den Schnitt verabschiedet und erst mal Pause bis zum hoffentlich bald folgenden (zumindest schon angekündigten) Temperatursturz angemeldet. Da hilft auchgutes Zureden nicht mehr ...

Aus diesem Grund werden wir alle angekündigten Sendungen im August um eine Woche nach hinten schieben müssen. Dafür gibt's in der Zwangspause am 17|08|03 noch mal das WGT-Special von der Vorwoche für euch! Auch ein zweites Mal ein lohnender Hingucker!"

Die genauen Infos zur Ausstrahlung im August/ September findet ihr hier: bzw.

Jägermeister - Band - Support

(english version comes tomorrow)

Wenn HIM schon eine der Paten in dem Förderprogramm von Jägermeister sind, wollten wir euch auch mal ein wenig darüber informieren.


Das Programm gibt es bereits seit 1994 in den USA. Dort läuft es unter dem Namen „Jagermusik" und das es in den USA so gut angekommen ist, fand es auch in Deutschland Anklang. Es wurde ein aufwändiges Nachwuchsförderprogramm entwickelt, dass heute unter dem Namen „Jägermeister-Band-Support" läuft. Das Konzept startete mit dem mitllerweile legendären Jägerbus, der zu Anfang erst 1-stöckig, mittlerweile aber 2-stöckig ist.

Der Sinn des ganzen ist das etablierte Bands, dass sind dann die sogenannten Paten, zu denen jetzt auch HIM gehören, Newcomern auf der gemeinsamen Touren Tipps und überlebenswichtige Erfahrungen mit auf den rockigen Weg zu geben. Auf diese Weise kommen die Nachwuchsbands erstmalig aus einem begrenzten Gebiet eraus und haben die Möglichkeit auf einer bundesweiten Tour vor großem Puplikum zu spielen und von den Tipps der Paten zu lernen.

Ziel des Jägermeister-Band-Supports ise es den individuellen Bedürfnissen verheißsungsvoller Newcomer zu erkennen und ihnen im Austausch mit anderen Musikern, Medien und der Musikindustrie ein maßgeschneidertes Konzept zu bieten.

Zu den Jägerbands gehören u.a. Such a Surge, H-Blochx, Die Happy, Pinko Star uvm.


16-Betten, eine Lounge

Maße: 12X15X4 (l/B/H)

Leergewicht: 18 kg

Leistung: 360 PS

Sitzplätze: 19

Außerdem im Deck 1: Stereoanlage (CD-Player, Tapeplayer, Tuner), Video/TV, Sony-Playstation, Kaffee/Teemaschine, Mikrowelle, WC mit Waschbecken, 2 Kühlschränke, Klimaanlage, 220Vund 12 Anschlüsse.

Deck: Leselampe, Ledersitzgarnitur in U-Form, Stereoanlage (s.oben), Video/TV, Sony Playstation.

So jetzt wisst ihr wie die Jungs auf Tour so leben. Ist doch auch mal ganz interessant. Oder?

Für das Programm gibt’s auch Talentsessions zu denen Bands mit guten Potential zu einer der Talensessions eingelanden werden. Das erledigen die Jägermeister-Talent-Scouts. Dsie Vorauswahl wird dann von prominenten Musikern und Musikjournalisten getroffen.

Leider haben HIM noch keine Entscheidung zwecks ihrer Vorband getroffen.

Wenn ihr mehr über das Programm, die Bands, die Talentsessions usw. wissen möchtet, guckt doch einfach mal vorbei unter:

Da könnt irh dann übrigends auch einen Trailer mit Ville über den Support sehen/hören bzw euch den Bus von innen angucken.

PS: HIM sind beim Terremotofestival am 31.08.2003 wieder mit dem Jägerbus unterwegs.


11.08.03: Ville in Cologne!
