Steffen Kummerer comments: “A Celebration I - Live in North America covers a selection of concerts we performed in the United States of America, Canada and Mexico between 2022 and 2023 as part of the „A Valediction World Tour“. Within 20 years, we are looking towards the first live album of Obscura, spiked with songs of our last five releases. It was a pleasure working through every recorded show to pick the best song, the loudest possible audience and a stellar performance by a band that's on fire. As a first impression, we choose „The Anticosmic Overload“ performed in the United States of America, since this was the first song ever we performed in North America back in 2009."
