EPICA Singer Recovers, Resumes Touring

EPICA frontwoman Simone Simons is back singing for the group on their current tour of Mexico following an emergency appendectomy which nerly sidelined the vocalist late last week. Marivi, lead singer of the opening band THE LEGION OF HETHERIA, had stepped in to complete the dates with EPICA in Simons' absence.

Commented Simone: "This week I was diagnosed with an appendix infection and had to go to the hospital for surgery. We all did not expect that I would recover this fast. And hereby I would like to announce that I will continue the tour from now on!

"I would like to thank all the fans for their support and understanding, the Loera family for taking care of me and of course for Marivi who did a great job!"

EPICA's remaining Mexican tour dates:

Dec. 15 - El Area Chica - Toluca, MEX
Dec. 16 - El Foro - Cuernavaca, MEX
Dec. 17 - Iguana Rock line - Durango, MEX
Dec. 18 - Huerta del S.T.I.C. - San Luis Potosí, MEX
Dec. 19 - Salón Mónaco - Cuautitlán, MEX
