On Saturday 14th April 2018, Symphonic Metal icons Epica will celebrate their one thousandth show anniversary at 013 venue 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 milestone event at the legendary 013, the exact same venue where it all started for the band sixteen years ago!

Rest assured that this night will be celebrated the right way as the band has invited some very special guests to make sure this night will be remembered! Danish Metal sensation Myrkur and American pogressive metallers Oceans of Slumber are already confirmed, and more guests are still to be announced!

Says vocalist Simone Simons: “Back in 2002 we could have never imagined that one day we’d be playing our one thousandth 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 adds: “I remember our very first show at 013, Tilburg as if it was yesterday. Back then we were supporting Anathema, but now sixteen years later we’ll have the honour to be celebrating our one thousandth 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 on sale today (Saturday 4th November). You can also purchase a special ticket bundle which includes an exclusive t-shirt of this show! Tickets for this special show are available HERE
