Evanescence and Within Temptation have postponed their upcoming tour of the UK and Europe, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The “Worlds Collide” trek, which was due to kick off in Brussels on April 4, will now move to later this year. Specific information dates for the rescheduled shows will be available shortly. All existing tickets and VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.
Evanescence singer Amy Lee said: “As many of you have already predicted, it is beyond our control that our upcoming European tour will have to be postponed. The show WILL go on, and we are already busy locking in the new dates for this fall. We are disappointed to make you wait, but fully agree that your health, safety and lives are more important than a concert. We will be releasing the first new music from our new album very soon, and are going to turn our full focus toward that till the show can go on. Stay tuned for new dates and new music. We love you!”
Within Temptation singer Sharon Den Adel said: “We are sorry to announce that our tour will be postponed. Nevertheless, in the meantime we will continue our preparation for the most kick-ass tour ever and more good news, new WT material will see daylight before the tour starts. We can’t wait to see you when the time comes. In the meantime, take care and be safe.”
Evanescence is currently in the studio working on a brand new album and will be releasing the first offering from it very soon.
Evanescence spent much of the last two years recording and touring in support of 2017’s “Synthesis”, which contained some of the band’s best-loved songs — as well as a couple of new ones — reinvented with full orchestra over a deep electronic landscape.
Within Temptation is working on brand new music which will be released in the near future to coincide with the new tour dates.
Within Temptation‘s latest album, “Resist”, came out in February 2019. It marked the band’s first release since 2014’s “Hydra”.
