Epica and Apocalyptica have postponed their two month 17 country tour until the first quarter of 2023 as ongoing restrictions make it currently unviable. Previously purchased tickets will remain valid.
“We are very sorry to inform you that we have been forced to postpone our European tour with Apocalyptica and Wheel once again,” Simone Simons said. “Even though in some countries shows of this size are allowed again, it is too early to do a full European tour with such a large production and travel party which would be performing in over 15 different countries.
“Our patience is put to the test as we really want to get back on the road to perform in front of our fans, but we want to be sure that everyone is safe and can enjoy the shows the right way. Thank you all so much for your patience! We will see each other soon again.”
“We are more than disappointed to announce the postponement of The Epic Apocalypse Tour once again,” said Apocalyptica, “but looking at the current situation, we cannot take the responsibility to play these shows.
“We do not want to put anyone at risk and are very much looking forward to play these shows in 2023, where we can hopefully go back to playing shows as we did before. We hope to see you soon. Stay safe.”
