Due to the continuing uncertainty over the course of the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe, Inside Temptation and Evanescence has decided to postpone the long-awaited Worlds Collide Tour to Spring 2022. It remains unclear at this point whether local authorities will do so. Ensuring a safe environment in which European fans can enjoy live shows, so relocation was inevitable.
In Temptation’s Sharon den Adel: “This is definitely not what we wanted, but the reality is no different: We have to postpone the Worlds Collide Tour again. Although we cannot make the current situation better than it is, we hope that we will put a big smile on your face soon. We’ve been busy in the meantime and there is a lot of cool things to come. And you know what they say, right? Three times is magic. So until April 2022! ”
Although tours have been postponed, Inside Temptation is still moving forward at full speed. During its closure, the band released two singles: “Entertain You” and “The Purge”. Both songs exceeded all expectations, with the top 20 spots on the Billboard Rock Chart in America and plenty of radio broadcasts around the world. In addition, the band has re-released their catalog on all digital broadcast platforms, including previously unreleased B aspects, demos and live recordings.
Evanescence released four singles during the closing and the new album “The Bitter Truth”, which reached # 1 on iTunes in 22 countries, # 2 in Germany and # 4 in the UK. Soon they will release a special animated anthology series “Echoes From The Void” in collaboration with Heavy Metal Entertainment, inspired by the songs from “Bitter Truth”.
