Roy Khan is seriously ill, and has to sit out the North American tour. Michael Eriksen from Circus Maximus will be doing vocals for Kamelot on the tour instead, as they don't want to cancel.

I'm glad they're still going on with the tour even though Roy's ill, and atleast they picked a great vocalist for the tour replacement. Really wish that I'd be seeing them with Roy, but I'll still almost definitely be going to the Worcester date.

I know the songs you're singing saying nothing loud and clear I've heard that song a thousand times

This is disappointing, however, I hope Khan gets well and comes back soon.

I'm gonna reiterate what I said on Facebook: I'm not worried about how he'll be received at ProgPower, but I am worried about how he'll go down at the other Kamelot gigs - there's already a lot of hate going on because, well, he isn't Khan. I will definitely still be there, though.

Michael Eriksen is a better singer than Khan. (Hides)

Actually, as fangirlish as I am? This dude is an awesome replacement because he has the range that Khan doesn't really have anymore. In fact, I thought "Oh, maybe this means that they can play some of their older stuff. :o" and guess what? They just updated their MySpace, saying that they're rehearsing Nights of Arabia.

Yeah, I was really disappointed at first, but right now I'm more pissed at the circumstances and the fact that other fans are actually screaming at them to cancel/postpone when this happened five days before the tour and they've invested so much money in this. Jesus Christ, Khan hand-picked Eriksen himself, I doubt he'd do that if he thought he wouldn't do a good job.

Eriksen's involvement is actually the only reason I'm now actually considering going to this. I love the guy's vocals, and it would just be a cool thing to witness I think.

The vocals are the main reason I don't listen to Circus Maximus. I will probably skip this show now.

Hi Kamelot Nation.

As many of you know, Roy 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 Michael 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 2 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 soldout Progpower 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!!

Best regards, Kamelot Members.


Damn it. I was actually really looking forward to seeing them with Michael, or just seeing Kamelot in general. Hope they can come back soon, though.
