EPICA celebrates 1000th show anniversary at 013 Tilburg!

On Saturday 14th April, 2018 symphonic metal icons EPICA will celebrate their 1000th show anniversary at 013 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. After their recent sold out shows in the Netherlands, EPICA is more than proud to announce that they will perform this mile-stone event at the legendary 013 venue, the exact same venue where it all started for the band 16 years ago!

Rest assured that this night will be celebrated the right way as EPICA invited some very special guests to make sure this night will be remembered! Danish metal sensation MYRKUR and USA’s progressive metallers OCEANS OF SLUMBER are already confirmed, and more guests are still to be announced!

Vocalist Simone Simons stated:
“Back in 2002, we could have never imagined that one day we’d be playing our 1,000th live show! This couldn’t have happened without the support of our dearest and most loyal EPICA legion, so in order to make this an unforgettable night, we’ve invited some very cool guests to perform with us!”

Guitarist Mark Jansen added:
“I remember our very first show at 013, Tilburg as if it was yesterday. Back then we were supporting ANATHEMA, but now 16 years later, we’ll have the honour to be celebrating our 1,000th show at the same venue as headliners. We could have never achieved this without the support of our loyal fans, so we definitely wanted to make this an amazing night to celebrate all together with also some very cool special guests! We hope to see you all in Tilburg!”

Early bird tickets are available now! You can also purchase a special bundle which includes an exclusive t-shirt of this show! You can order your preferred version via this link:
