Epica Give Update On Singer's Condition

Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA check in with the following update:

"After having had a couple of weeks of rest we were very much hoping that Simone’s (Simons - vocals) situation would have improved already. Unfortunately the last MRSA test was still positive and also the infections still haven’t stopped completely. We have the feeling Simone’s health is improving but unfortunately not enough yet. We cannot risk the health of Simone and therefore, with pain in our hearts, we cannot come to Mexico and Colombia again. Also two of our three shows in the UK are cancelled for this reason. It’s still impossible for Simone to make long trips. As you can imagine we feel really bad about this, especially since our Mexican/Colombian tour was already postponed once before, but we also hope you understand and respect our decision on this. You all have our word that we will come back as soon as possible to make up for all this. Unfortunately at this moment we just can’t tell when this will be but we hope before the end of this year."

MRSA can take months if not years to get over in sever cases... I think they'd be better off getting a temp replacement.
