Within Temptation Postpones European Tour Due To Singer's Pregnancy

Sharon den Adel , vocalist of the Dutch symphonic metal act Within Temptation, has posted the following statement online explaining the band's decision to postpone its forthcoming European tour to 2011:

"As we are all gearing up for the release of our new album I have news which might come as a surprise: Robert [Westerholt, Within Temptation guitarist] and I are expecting a child. To be honest, this was not planned at all, but we're very happy about it as we experience our kids as an enrichment of our lives.

"I'm happy to tell you that the release of our new album will not change: March 2011! The recordings for the album are completed and the songs are being mixed right now, all preparations for the release are in full swing, so there is no reason to put things on hold.

"However, we couldn't avoid rescheduling our tour as it will be impossible for me to deliver a great show for you while being in the final months of my pregnancy. Also due to the complications during the previous pregnancies, it is dangerous for our baby and for me to be very active in these final months.

"The tour dates have already been rescheduled to the fall of 2011. The tickets you have bought will remain valid for the new dates.

"We understand that the rescheduling of our tour is a blow for you and we can only sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused as we very much appreciate the fact that so many of you have bought tickets for the shows early on.

"We hope for your understanding and support and we'll do everything to make the upcoming tour the best you've ever seen from us yet!"
