"We spent endless hours, days and nights working on the DVD, because we wanted to present a real highlight for all rock and metal fans for the 30th anniversary. We took care of every detail. It began with the bombastic stage in Wacken, we worked one year on its design. In Dusseldorf, we even celebrated two nights in a row. One "Classic Night" with a 40-piece orchestra and one "balls to the wall" rock show on the second evening. It continued subsequently nonstop - with an anniversary tour, with led us to Russia, South America and my second home, the USA, among others."
