Symphonic metal band Epica began 2017 with what’s proving to be their most successful European tour to date. Sharing the stage with Powerwolf and Beyond the Black, they’ve performed before thousands of fans, night after night, with a tour ending spectacle; selling out the 5,000 seat Zenith in Paris, France.
Keyboardist Coen Janssen shares, “We had the most amazing time on our ‘European Principle’ run. We played the biggest venues, in front of the craziest crowds ever!! Fans gave all the energy they had every night and that radiated onto the band, for sure! Fortunately, we shot some very cool images of a few of those nights, crafted into another awesome after-movie for you and us to relive this ‘epic’ tour!”
Captured by the video team of Panda Productions, they have assembled an “after-tour video.”
Later in February, the band will perform headline shows in Russia, Scandinavia, Finland, Asia and Latin America as the tour dates continue. The forthcoming dates will see Epica share the stage with artists including Crimson Sun, Deep Purple, Running Wild, Kreator, Hatebreed, Sonata Arctica, Skalmold and more. The current planned shows will wrap up in August at the Summer Breeze Festival – an all out annual metal masterpiece of a show. Here’s the trailer for that.
