Nightwish have postponed their Asian tour due to the rescheduling of their frontwoman’s radiation therapy. Floor Jansen had declared that her surgery went well and is now cancer-free, after a breast cancer diagnosis.

The band was scheduled to play three dates in China in April 2020. Due to the pandemic, those shows in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou were postponed to January 2022 and later to 2023. New shows were scheduled for Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Jakarta.

You can read the band’s statement below:

“The last stage of getting Floor back to full health involves radiation therapy, which has been rescheduled from February to January. And so, as a consequence, we are unable to come to Asia as scheduled. But don’t panic! All of our team are working solidly on making sure we all see you again soon.”
