Due to the persistent COVID-19 situation, the much-anticipated Worlds Collide tour that two giants, WITHIN TEMPTATION and EVANESCENCE, were going to do first in April/May, and then were forced to postpone to September 2020, has now again been delayed. The whole joint venture will now take place in September and October of 2021. See below for exact tour dates.
Worlds Collide Tour 2021
Here’s the official statement from both bands:
WITHIN TEMPTATION: “Due to the ongoing restrictions, we are forced to postpone our co-headline European tour with EVANESCENCE to 2021. We know this year will not be easy for you and we will do whatever it takes to get you through by continuing to write and release new songs. Knowing that we won’t get to play for you this year is hard for everyone, but everyone’s health and wellbeing is our number one priority. Whatever happens, this tour will happen! We can’t wait to see you again in 2021, all tickets bought will remain valid! For now: stay safe . Sharon, Martijn, Jeroen, Ruud, Stefan & Mike”.
EVANESCENCE: “We are so disappointed that we won’t be seeing you this fall, but we’re accepting the challenge 2020 is giving us and pouring our time and hearts into making a great album instead. Friends, we miss you terribly and can’t wait to play these songs for you next year! Be safe, be well, we love you.”
WITHIN TEMPTATION have released their latest single Entertain You in May, without the prospect of a new album. Meanwhile, EVANESCENCE make use of the situation and work hard on a new album that will be called The Bitter Truth, for which no release date has been set yet.
