Epica drops off Eluveitie, The Agonist tour

Symphonic metal outfit Epica has officially dropped off the remainder of their North American tour with Eluveitie and The Agonist as vocalist Simone Simons had to return home to the Netherlands due to a family emergency. The band has issued this statement:
"It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the cancellation of all remaining shows of our North American tour. "A couple of days ago, Simone had to fly back to the Netherlands to be with her family due to an emergency. Sadly, there has been no major improvement in that situation so it is impossible for Simone to return to the tour at this moment. Therefore, we have no other option than to cancel the remaining dates. However, the Revolver tour will carry on as scheduled with Eluveitie, The Agonist and Martina Edoff. "We will again be rescheduling the North American tour in support of The Quantum Enigma for the beginning of next year. "If you wish to refund your tickets you can do this through the venue. VIP tickets purchased through Sound Rink will be refunded automatically. Tickets for this tour will not be valid for the rescheduled dates. "We want to thank all our fans and partners for their understanding and support in this difficult situation."
