Kamelot Touring Without Usual Keyboardist
That’s like peanut butter with no jelly. Like turkey with no gravy.
Well, it’s not like that at all.
But yes, Kamelot keyboardist Oliver Palotai has released a statement.
“This September, Kamelot will bring the ‘Silverthorn Tour 2013’ to North America! It will be a big metal party, with our friends Delain and Eklipse.”
Oli says that he and Simone [Simons from Epica] and I are expecting our first child, who decided to make its entrance in the spotlight right when I wanted to tour with my band, so instead of making this part of the tour, I will be here welcoming our new addition to the Kamelot family!”
That’s a good reason not to go out on tour with your band.
“The good news is: A good friend and fantastic musician will take my place behind the keys — Coen Janssen from Epica. Since we toured already many times together and he knows the songs by heart, he’s without doubt the best choice for the job. I wish him all the best and success; he will have a great time with my bandmates from Kamelot and is a fantastic performer. I will be back on stage for the European tour in November, with new skills like fast diaper changing, baby rocking or lullaby singing. See you there!”
