Within Temptation have postponed their upcoming immersive event, “The Aftermath – A Show In A Virtual Reality.” The livestream is now set to take place on July 15 at 8PM CEST / 7PM BST for European fans and on July 16 at 8PM ET / 5PM PT / 9PM BRT / 7PM CST for North and South American fans.
Sharon Den Adel commented:
“You all know we are absolute heroes in rescheduling dates and now we’ve reached a new milestone: our shortest postponement in our career so far! We’re working very hard on our VR-event, but as it’s something we’ve never done before – and definitely something you have never SEEN before, we sometimes experience a few hiccups in the process that are completely new to us and the crew.”
To smooth everything out and create the best possible, spectacular and mythical experience for you, we’ve decided to postpone The Aftermath – A Show In A Virtual Reality to July 15 and 16. It’s only one week and we know that it’ll be worth the short wait. We can’t wait for you to see it. It’s going to be a show to remember!”
She also previously said the following about the performance:
“During the whole pandemic, we weren’t keen on doing a livestream. The magic of seeing and hearing a band perform live — combined with the energy of the crowd — is something you cannot simply recreate with a livestream. So, for a long time we were clueless. One thing we knew for sure: we would not compromise on a livestream if we could offer something out of the ordinary, something jaw-dropping, intriguing, spectacular and mythical! Then we found it: a world that we could shape into our wildest fantasies and in which we, as a band, could perform while still maintaining the dynamics and magic of our traditional live show.
We are absolutely thrilled to invite you to ‘Within Temptation: The Aftermath – A Show In A Virtual Reality’. A show that takes place in different scenes of a post-apocalyptic world, in which we are witness of the aftermath of destruction of mankind. A world in which it is unknown if anyone or anything of the human race survived. It is a search for answers — about both its becoming as well as its legacy.”
