Nightwish's Floor Jansen To Join Ayreon Onstage


(Prog) Nightwish singer Floor Jansen will appear onstage with Ayreon for two shows in the Netherlands next year. The performances will be held at the 013 venue in Tilburg on September 15 and 16, 2017, and will see Arjen Lucassen also joined by a raft of guests for the shows, which are being billed as the Ayreon Universe experience.

Nightwish's Marco Hietala, Symphony X's Russell Allen, Threshold's Damian Wilson, Blind Guardian's Hansi Kursch, Kamelot's Tommy Karevik, Katatonia's Jonas Renkse and Anneke van Giersbergen have so far been confirmed, with further names to be added in due course.

Ayreon Universe has been organised and arranged by Lucassen and Joost van den Broek, and will see music from all Ayreon albums and a selection of tracks from Star One showcased.

Lucassen says: "After the huge success of the four sold-out Ayreon theatre shows in 2015, Joost and I decided to boldly go even bigger. This is a full-on 'best of Ayreon' rock show in a big venue with as many original Ayreon singers and musicians as possible." Read more here.
