EPICA announce UK & IRL 2018 headline Tour


Dutch Symphonic Metal Titans EPICA have just announced a full headline UK & Ireland Tour for next Spring. The sextet will take on UK venues nationwide as well as play their first ever Irish show at Dublin's Tivoli. 

Guitarist Mark Jansen commented: 
"We're coming back to the UK!
Not for just 1 show like last time. Also Ireland for the very first time!!! We're looking very much forward to partying with you guys! See you in April!"

Epica played a sold-out show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire earlier this year bringing their latest album 'The Holographic Principle' to life with impressive lighting and staging. Light reflecting glass prisms accompanied the cinematic soundscapes of one of metal's biggest and most bombastic live bands. Don't miss your chance to see Epica in 2018 as they take on the whole of the UK with full force on THE UNITED PRINCIPLE TOUR!
