Within Temptation have issued the following update:
"Unfortunately we have to announce that, due to family matters, Stephen hasn't been able to rehearse with us for the upcoming theatre tour. That's why Stephen has asked Mike Coolen to replace him for the rehearsals and consequently also for the theatre tour. You might have seen Mike Coolen (Brotherhood Foundation, Daybroke) with us before, as he replaced Stephen during a few shows last year. We kindly ask you to also give Mike a warm welcome!
Speaking of shows, the upcoming theatre tour will be our last tour for a while. The upcoming year we will focus on writing new songs and work on recording a new album. We have done over 180 shows in 40 countries in the past 2 years. New continents have been visited (like the United States, South-America and Russia) and we also did shows in Eastern Europe for the first time. The Black Symphony concert with the Metropole Orchestra in Ahoy Rotterdam has been an absolute highlight. We're still very proud of the amazing DVD and Blu-ray in which it has resulted. It have been two intense, but amazing years and we'd like to thank you all for giving us your warm welcome and support!
Within Temptations have posted the following update:
"We know you're all very curious on what will happen surrounding our new DVD. To start things off, we posted 2 clips online in high resolution quality. As the quality of Youtube isn't great, we wanted to put these online, for you to see how amazing "Black Symphony" looks!
You can check out these clips in various bitstreams depending on your internetconnection, but also send them to your friends and family. Those of you who send out the video the most, will win a signed "Black Symphony" DVD! Enjoy"

Guitarist Robert Westerholt has posted on the band's website that he will not be joining the rest of the band on the tour that will start on 10 January. Robert explains that reason for this is that he has severely bruised his right thumb, which makes it impossible for him to play guitar.
Within Temptation will be playing with 5 members only, and no new tour member will be filling in Robert's place.

Within Temptation have posted the following message on their official website:
"In November last year our third album 'The Silent Force' came out in Europe and we recently just released it in the UK as well. Things have been going great, and after a summer full of cool European shows it was also good to see some of our UK fans in London and at the Bloodstock Festival earlier this month. We are happy and a little proud to look back on a year full of highlights.
Now, the festival season is almost over. Everyone thinks Within Temptation are going to sit back and put our feet up! On the contrary, we are currently preparing the release of a new live DVD which will contain the special concert we did on Amsterdam's Java Island, cuts from many other live shows, interviews and backstage footage plus the promo videos since the previous DVD (from the Mother Earth tour). We want to get as many highlights on the DVD('s) as possible for our fans! The release of the 'The Silent Force Tour' DVD is scheduled for November 21st. And in the UK, to follow on from our first single 'Stand My Ground', we are also working on our second single - which will be 'Angels'.
