From Kamelot:

“As many of you know, [KAMELOT vocalist] Roy [Khan; full name: Roy Sætre Khantatat] has fallen ill and could not make the North American tour.

“We have been rehearsing like madmen here in Tampa — the band is tighter than ever and [previously announced replacement vocalist] Michael [Eriksen] from CIRCUS MAXIMUS is truly an amazing singer; if there is one male vocalist in this world who is on par with Roy, it is Michael! However, after today’s rehearsal, we all decided that we do not feel right about doing the North American tour as anything less than a 100% KAMELOT experience.

“We appreciate that many fans have waited more than two years for new material and to see us perform together.

“Our new album, ‘Poetry for the Poisoned’, represents a labor of love from us, and to present it at anything less than full strength seems a disservice to all involved.

“Though we will suffer financial losses on this late-hour cancellation, we still feel it’s the right decision for us as a band to make.

“We regret disappointing all those who worked so hard to shape this tour, and especially those fans who were still so willing to come through and support us despite Roy’s absence. We are humbled by that type of support, and we sincerely hope that our return in full-form KAMELOT strength will be more reward for your unwavering loyalty!

“We will reschedule all shows in the near future, once Roy is able to return.

“Refunds can be obtained at the point of purchase.

“To thank Michael for his effort, the band will still appear at the sold-out ProgPower [USA] festival, as a one-off show with him and many special guest singers from the festival.

“Again, we want to thank all of you for your amazing support!!
