On March 23rd, 2013, internationally renowned metal band EPICA will celebrate their 10th anniversary with a special performance, entitled Retrospect, which will take place in the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven, in their home country the Netherlands.
Retrospect will be Epica’s most ambitious project to date, joined by a 70-piece symphonic orchestra and choir, international guests and lots of special effects.
Watch an online message from the band below:
Tickets will go on sale on September 15th at 10 AM (GMT+1) and will be available through the websites of Epica and Klokgebouw.
Especially for this show the band has invited the Hungarian Extended Remenyi Ede Chamber Orchestra and Choir of Miskolc National Theatre, the same orchestra and choir with whom Epica recorded the highly acclaimed live album, The Classical Conspiracy. This anniversary show will be a Retrospect on Epica’s career and will contain all trademark elements you can expect from Epica.
Special VIP-tickets are available as well and cost €65,- + service costs. VIPs will get early access to the venue and exclusive VIP goodies. From October 1st the price will increase by €4 for both normal and VIP tickets.
Epica recently took part in a very special recording session, and a video was made for the upcoming Dutch NTR TV show, Niks Te Gek, in which mentally disabled persons can make their dreams come true.
Ruurd Woltring's biggest wish was to record one of his songs with Epica, so the band took his music and lyrics, re-arranged it into an Epica song and invited him into the studio.
The whole episode of Niks Te Gek with Ruurd Woltring and Epica will be broadcast in the Netherlands on September 16th on the Dutch TV channel Nederland 2.
