There was news and/or gossip around the web about the Katatonia and Epica gigs in Turkey a while ago. According to the bravewords website, Katatonia was dropped from the bill so this meant that they would not co-headline with Epica in the concerts in Istanbul and Ankara. However, the Swedish metallers made a clear statement on their official website yesterday. According to the statement, both gigs in both cities are NOT cancelled and Katatonia is co-headlining with Epica.

Check out the statement below :

To lay all confusion and rumors regarding the dates in Turkey to rest, we can now announce that both the show in Istanbul on feb 23 at Refresh The Venue and the show in Ankara on feb 24 at Jolly Joker will be a co-headlining event with Epica from The Netherlands. Epica will close the shows, but both bands will have the same playing time, so any fan of melody is definitely gonna kill two birds with one stone attending these very first shows of 2013! Please note that VIP tickets are not available for Katatonia and if you see any VIP ticket option available it’s for Epica only. See you soon! Şerefe!

It’s good to hear that Katatonia concert is not cancelled 😀
