Dutch Symphonic Metallers EPICA announced that they will have to cancel the remaining North American Dates, repors Nuclear Blast.
The band gave the following statement about their departure from the 2015 Revolver tour:
Dear North American fans.
It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the cancellation of all remaining shows of our North American tour.
A couple of days ago Simone had to fly back to the Netherlands to be with her family due to an emergency. Sadly, there has been no major improvement in that situation so it is impossible for Simone to return to the tour at this moment. Therefore, we have no other option than to cancel the remaining dates.
The Revolver tour will carry on as scheduled with Eluveitie, The Agonist and Martina Edoff.
Since this is the second North American tour in support of The Quantum Enigma that is cancelled, we are doing everything we can to reschedule as much of the tour as possible for the beginning of next year.
If you wish to refund your tickets you can do this through the venue. VIP-tickets purchased through Soundrink will be refunded automatically. Tickets for this tour will not be valid for the rescheduled dates.
We want to thank all our fans and partners for their understanding and support in this difficult situation.
