Epica’s Coen Janssen Sits Out Upcoming Tour

Epica will be playing without their long time keyboardist Coen Janssen on their upcoming North American tour.

Coen has revealed that the reason is his wife was diagnosed with cancer. It is still unclear who will fill in for Coen at this time, but Epica promised the tour will go as planned.

Coen should return to the stage with them in October. We wish his wife, Linda, a full recovery.

Coen has expressed his apologies to the fans in the following statement: “Dear friends and fans. Here is a message I hoped never to write to you. Unfortunately I will not take part in Epica‘s upcoming North American Enigma tour with Eluveitie and The Agonist.

“Recently, my wife Linda was diagnosed with cancer. To overcome this terrible disease she is getting chemo-treatment. Needless to say, I have to be at her side and take care of our children during this period. I want to express my deepest gratitude towards Simone, Mark, Isaac, Rob, Arien, our entire crew and management for their love, understanding and support! I cannot wish for anything better then these guys having my back in these times! I am sure they will keep giving you the best possible show there is, with or without me. Thank you and hope to see you soon! Cheers Coen.”
