Over the past 10 years Dutch symphonic metal band Epica, with mezzo-soprano Simone Simons as lead singer, has grown from a local metal band into an international touring act and has done extensive tours of Europe, North-America and Latin-America.
This week the band will embark on their Latin-American tour to promote their latest album “Requiem for the Indifferent” followed by a North-American tour in October/ November, ending the year with a tour of France and the UK.
Epica will celebrate their 10th anniversary with a unique show. A 70-piece symphonic orchestra and choir will accompany the band at the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven (NL). Especially for this show the band has invited the Hungarian Extended Remenyi Ede Chamber Orchestra and Choir of Miskolc National Theatre, the same orchestra and choir with whom Epica recorded the highly acclaimed live album “The Classical Conspiracy”. This anniversary show will be a “Retrospect” on Epica’s career and will contain all trademark elements you can expect from Epica.
