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!”
