Floor Jansen Won’t Be Able To Perform With Nightwish Due To Health Issues

Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen announced that her health condition isn’t well enough for her to carry out her two upcoming performances in the Netherlands, which were planned for July 6 and 8. In her tweet, she said:

“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 time regarding after her hospitalisation, Floor explained:

“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.”

She told her decision about taking time off, and expressed her feelings about cancelling shows with following words:

“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.”

Short after the vocalist revealed her pregnancy in March, the group announced that they started working on a new album, but took a break from touring. The group ensured that this hiatus is unrelated to Floor’s solo career, or her pregnancy.
