Evanescence and Within Temptation have unfortunately been forced to cancel their co-headline tour across the UK and mainland Europe next month as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
A statement has been issued by Evanescence, which can be read below.

“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 have also released a statement on the situation, and you can read that below.

We are sorry to announce that our European tour will be postponed. Nevertheless, we will continue the preparation for the most kick ass tour ever and have some more good news: new WT material will see the daylight before the tour starts.
We can’t wait to see you all again. In the meantime take care & be safe.”
We have compiled a list of other tours and festivals that have been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which we intend to update as and when we can.
