Nightwish’s Floor Jansen cancels solo concerts due to health issues

Nightwish singer Floor Jansen has canceled her solo concerts announced for the Netherlands, the first on July 6 at Royal Park Live in Baarn and the second on July 8 at Caprera in Bloemendaal. Nightwish played their last concert with Jansen on June 17 at Lemonsoft Stadion in Vaasa.

The singer, who is pregnant with her second child, has released a statement via social media. It reads:

Dear everyone, with great regret, I have to cancel my shows on the 6th and 8th of July. The reason is that my health is not good enough to responsibly perform the shows.

I became exhausted after my last show with Nightwish in Finland. So much so that I collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. There, the doctors determined that my baby is healthy and I don’t have any serious illnesses. However, I was so fatigued that continuing to work is no longer an option. The show with Nightwish in Oslo had to be canceled as a result of this. That was 3 weeks ago. I had hoped that I would be able to rebuild enough energy to still perform those wonderful solo shows in the Netherlands. But unfortunately, that’s not the case. To ensure the health of both myself and my unborn baby, I need to rest and focus entirely on my recovery and the final phase of my pregnancy.

Canceling a show breaks my heart! It’s a decision I definitely don’t take lightly. But I hope to welcome you back to one of my shows in the near future! In good health. For now, I will temporarily bid farewell to the public stage and promise to take good care of myself and my little one.

Love, Floor
