The vocalist Simone Simons comments: “We are super excited to tell you that due to a huge demand from our fans in Latin America for our ‘Design Your Universe’ anniversary shows. We have we decided to also celebrate the album’s anniversary there.”
“In celebration one of my personal favorite Epica albums, we will return to one of my favorite territories,” continues guitarist Mark Jansen. “When a huge amount of our fans made us clear that we should bring this show to Latin America we started looking into possibilities and I’m very glad we found a way to make this happen!”
Epica promises a special setlist focusing on the album, including fan-favourites such as “Kingdom Of Heaven” and “Design Your Universe”. Mark states: “The title track shows us that we can all create our destiny and it’s still one of my favorite tracks to play live. Also, quite a few other songs of the album deserve to be played again and we will! Our set is gonna be filled with DYU songs so don’t miss one of these opportunities.”
