O grupo colocou o seguinte comunicado no site oficial:
"With pain in our heart we have to announce that the Epica shows in Madrid (tomorrow) and Lisbon (Sunday) are cancelled. Simone has no voice and the specialized doctor told her to be silent for the next two days. Tickets of these shows remain valid and we're working on the new dates for these two shows (probably March 2010). We're really sorry but what can you do about fate... The doctor told as well that the chance is big that Simone's voice will get better soon so that the concerts in France and Z7 Switzerland will take place. We'll keep you updated!"
