Cristina and Chris comment on the Gigantour in Australia

Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia and Cristiano Migliore have commented on the upcoming Gigantour:

Scabbia: “When I got asked if I wanted to sing a song with MEGADETH on the album ‘United Abominations’, I couldn’t believe it; it was such a big honor for me, and a great new experience, for sure. But now that we’ve been invited to be a part of Gigantour, I’m even more excited because we will finally be able to show Australia how LACUNA COIL can kick some serious ass! Not only that, but I’ll get to see old friends like DEVILDRIVER (and we can’t wait to meet the other bands as well…it’s gonna be FUN!). And of course, there’s also a chance that I just might be performing ‘A Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free)’ with Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman]… and if that happens, YOU know you CAN’T fucking miss it!!!!! (Will it happen??? Who knows? You’ll have to come to the shows see if it happens or not…). I’m sure I’ll see you all there… Australia… we are coming!!!!!!!!!”

Migliore: “After all these years, we’re finally coming to Oz! Obviously we’re super-excited about it and we couldn’t ask for a better chance than to join such a great tour as this! The Gigantour is gonna be the best thing you’re gonna see this year so make sure you get your ass there! Who knows when the next time you’ll be able to see such a great lineup will be?”

Cristina in Metal Hammer Magazine

UK magazine Metal Hammer interviewed Cristina Scabbia as part of their feature on Apocalyptica in their November 2007 issue.
Cristina had this to say
“Appearing on Apocalyptica’s album was an honour and a challenge. I’d never sung their kind of music before, and it’s hard to sing another person’s vocal line – especially a guy’s. But the song’s great. I hope that this album makes them a little more popular. They deserve it.
I recently sang on Megadeths, album as well. It was a coincidence that these things came along at once, but I’ve no intention of leaving my own band. I’m getting asked that question a lot right now, but there’s no reason for fans to worry. I’ll always be totally dedicated to Lacuna Coil.”

Issue #172 of Metal Hammer is available now.
