Today, Epica attended Metropool Open Air with Blackbriar and MaYaN. The venue looked so pretty ! Simone wore a new black dress and the band played a few “rare” songs that are not played very often anymore, like A Phantasmic Parade, Solitary Ground and Seif Al Din.

Epica is scheduled to play 3 festivals this summer before the DYU 10th Anniversary Tour next fall. The first festival took place this afternoon in Donington (United Kingdom), and Simone wore a new shiny dress. I think it looks a lot like this one, except with longer sleeves and v-neck ! I added a few pictures in the gallery, hopefully I’ll be able to add more later.

The last show of 2018 took place in Tunis two days ago. This show was rescheduled after the band was unable to play under heavy rains in August and the first show had to be cancelled. We’re so glad our fellow Epica fans from Tunisia were finally able to see the band on stage ! Thank you for the pictures and videos you shared on Instagram.

As you can see, Simone wore a brand new sparkling dress. I really love it and I can’t wait to see more pictures of it ! What do you think of that dress ?

I also wanted to wish you all happy holidays, whether you celebrate Christmas, Pancha Ganapati, Hanukkah or something else, or if you don’t celebrate anything at all. I just hope you will spend the last days of 2018 with your loved ones. Take care <3
