About

Nightwish

Equal parts cinematic storytelling and gothic symphonies, Nightwish have sold more than 7 million albums worldwide and have received over 60 Gold and Platinum awards, making them one of Finland's most successful rock bands.

Hugely influential, unique, and unrivaled in the heavy metal pantheon, NIGHTWISH continue to expand the breadth and scope of their artistic vision with each successive release. Their 2011 studio album, Imaginaerum, arrived into the world with a visual counterpart "Imaginaerum – The Movie," an album-length film directed by Stobe Harju and produced by Solar Films, which created a musical fantasy world in the vein of David Lynch, Neil Gaiman, and Cirque du Soleil. A journey between two different dimensions, the film tells an extraordinary tale of the power of imagination & memory and what is most important in life.

The keyboard-driven compositions from bandleader Tuomas Holopainen surpass that of some of the most brilliant film scores and work brilliantly alongside their engaging and electrifying Dutch frontwoman Floor Jansen, who was announced as an official member of the band – along with British multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley – in October of last year. The band's 2013 "Imaginaerum World Tour," consisting of 104 shows in 34 countries and a total audience of over 1.5 million fans around the globe, was captured in the live DVD / Blu-ray titled Showtime, Storytime and includes the band's live Wacken Open Air set in front of 85,000 fans plus the two-hour Ville Lipiäinen-directed documentary film "Please Learn the Setlist in 48 Hours."

Their highly anticipated next studio album is set to release in spring of 2015, and it will include the longest song in the band’s history.

Soaring emotion, divine melodies, haunting choruses, and grandiose orchestrations, all will be treated to endearing NIGHTWISH fan favorites such as "Ghost Love Score," "Nemo," "Wish I Had An Angel," "Bye Bye Beautiful," and "I Want My Tears Back."
Support act from Netherlands, Delain, brings even more haunting symphonic melodies and a divine and versatile sound to what will already be a profound and fantasy-provoking performance.
