Greek Power Metallers Firewind have posted the following update on their official website:

"The second part of our World Allegiance Tour has already started and the first four shows have been fantastic so far! However, we're in the unfortunate position to announce that Apollo [Papathanasio; vocals] has to cancel the last seven dates of the European tour we're now on with Angra and Power Quest, due to a family emergency. Apollo will be performing the whole French leg of the tour, his last show being on February 25th in Toulouse. However, we've all discussed the situation and we decided to continue with a replacement singer. The person who will help us out in this difficult moment will be Henning Basse of Metalium. Henning is truly a world-class singer and a great frontman. We are excited to have him on board for the remaining dates! Please note that Apollo is NOT leaving the band, we have his blessings to continue as we all feel that canceling the rest of the tour would be the last option. Apollo will return for the UK headline shows and all upcoming tour dates."

20 - Pratteln, Switzerland at Z7
22 - Lyon, France at Ninkasi Kao
