Just one day after the release of their anniversary re-issues We Still Take You With Us and Live At Paradiso (for the first time!), symphonic metal titans EPICA will celebrate 20 years of existence live at Tilburg’s 013, the same place where they played their first show (supporting Anathema) back in 2002.
However, since the show has long been sold out and not everyone can join the celebrations on September 3rd, the band are bringing the show to everyone via the internet. Fans everywhere can tune in to an exclusive, pro-shot live stream of the entire show that will contain plenty of surprises in the setlist, several guests and spectacular stage effects!
Coen Janssen comments: “We are extremely happy to be able to share our anniversary – not only with the lucky ones who got a ticket – but also with everybody else in the world! Our loyal fanbase is everywhere around this planet and through this live stream we can let everyone be part of this party. It wouldn’t be a birthday bash without you!!So, grab your drinks and warn the neighbours, because this is going to be a noisy night!”
In addition, you will also get to witness the return of a band that had disappeared off the face of the earth for the last 20 years. SAHARA DUST reunite for a special one-off live performance to open the show. Don’t miss them, because although you might have never heard of them, their history is heavily interwoven with Epica‘s inception.
Starting live at 19:30 CEST, the shows will remain online for 72 hours for fans in different time zones to re-watch in their account at any time within that period.
Early bird tickets are available until August 12th, bundles are available with limited edition merchandise that will only be available with the stream or directly at the anniversary show in Tilburg.
