In mid-April, three great Italian bands would come to the Netherlands for an exclusive mini tour. Not only the bands are great but especially the singers of Ancient Bards, Sleeping Romance and Kalidia appeal to the imagination. Unfortunately, as a result of measures against the spread of the coronavirus, the organization had to call off its performances.

The bands respond as follows:

β€œIt is with great sadness that we have to announce that the Female Italian Voices – Symphonic Metal Nights, which would take place during April 2020, will be canceled.
