Yesterday, after 17 months without a concert because of Covid, Epica finally took the stage to celebrate the release of Ωmega. The band didn’t disappoint : the show was fantastic, with dancers, fire effects, rain, children choir, piano on fire (wow!) and many stunning outfits for Simone. Her voice was perfect, and the whole band seemed genuinely happy to be share this event with the fans. I really loved the setlist and the band’s energy. Now I can’t wait for the upcoming tour !

Here are the first pictures of the show by Tim Tronckoe, as well as “behind the scenes” photos posted by the band. I’ll add more pics, screencaptures and videos in the next few days !

Epica announced a streaming event titled “Ωmega Alive” to perform songs from the latest album on stage for the first time ! According to the band :

After the release of Ωmega we wanted nothing more than to celebrate this memorable moment in our career together with as many fans as possible in a packed venue. Unfortunately we all know why that didn’t happen… But we couldn’t let this moment pass without a proper celebration so… BIG BANG… we conjured up the next best thing and made it EPIC : ΩMEGA ALIVE. This is going to be our biggest production ever, a massive show full of everything “EPICA” with cherries on top !!!

“Ωmega Alive” will be streamed on June 12th at 21:00 CET / 15:00 EST / 12:00 PST and will be available for 72 hours.

You can buy early birds tickets and merchandise bundles here. Early bird pricing available until June 6th.

The new album is out ! After a long delay due to covid-19, Ωmega was released this morning. I updated the song database with all the lyrics and info about the new songs.

The band also posted a stunning new music video for the song The Skeleton Key : watch it here. It’s probably one of their best videos yet !
