here are the best wishes for 2011 published by Angra's musicians on their official Twitter :

**Edu Falaschi via Twitvid :

** Kiko Loureiro via Twitter :
"Happy New Year ! Thanks for all of the support in 2010 !"

** Felipe Andreoli via Twitter :
"Feliz 2011! Happy 2011! 2011おめでとう! Buon 2011! Joyeux 2011! Glückliches 2011! 2011年快乐! Счастливый 2011 году!"

** Ricardo Confessori via Twitter :
"Great luxe of life is to look back and feel proud of our history. The great thing is to live each moment as if it were the recipe for happiness here and now. Of course, life plays tricks... But just think : no fun to live without laughing at least once a day ? Makes it sense to get upset over ? I want to live well. 2010 was a year full of good things and achievements, but also full of problems and disappointments. Normal. Sometimes you expect too much. Normal. Money didn't come, which disappointed his friend, love hurts. Normal. Next year will be no different. Change of century, change of millenium, but man is full of imperfections, nature has her personality... HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU, MY FRIENDS ! WHETHER IT'S WORTH ... LIVE INTENSELY ! BE HAPPY !"
