FLOOR JANSEN Cancels Solo Concerts Due To Health Issues, Reveals Collapse After Recent NIGHTWISH Show

Nightwish Live 2023

NIGHTWISH faced the unfortunate necessity of canceling their appearance at the Tons of Rock festival in Oslo, Norway, due to health concerns surrounding singer Floor Jansen.

Consequently, their final show took place at the Lemonsoft Stadion in Vaasa, Finland, where they performed a set comprising 16 songs. Sharing an update on social media, Jansen revealed that the Oslo cancellation led to the cancellation of two of her own upcoming solo performances as well.

She wrote: “With great regret, I have to cancel my shows on the 6th and 8th of July. The reason is that my health is not good enough to responsibly perform the shows. I became exhausted after my last show with NIGHTWISH in Finland. So much so that I collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. There, the doctors determined that my baby is healthy and I don’t have any serious illnesses. However, I was so fatigued that continuing to work is no longer an option.

“The show with NIGHTWISH in Oslo had to be canceled as a result of this. That was 3 weeks ago. I had hoped that I would be able to rebuild enough energy to still perform those wonderful solo shows in the Netherlands. But unfortunately, that’s not the case. To ensure the health of both myself and my unborn baby, I need to rest and focus entirely on my recovery and the final phase of my pregnancy.”

“Canceling a show breaks my heart! It’s a decision I definitely don’t take lightly. But I hope to welcome you back to one of my shows in the near future! In good health. For now, I will temporarily bid farewell to the public stage and promise to take good care of myself and my little one.”

Jansen is currently in the advanced stages of her second pregnancy, after successfully recovering from breast cancer in 2022, which required her to undergo surgery to remove the tumor.
