It feels like we’ve got Finnish musical greats on the mind for the past week that led us to last night’s spectacular Nightwish show at the Playstation Theater. If you missed that one it was your loss for sure and I’ll be cobbling together a full review with a gallery as soon as my head stops rattling because I had SUCH a great time with so many friends at this one. Now, the reason this notice exists is to tell you that the folks over at Infinity Concerts have announced a special one-off NYC show by the original voice of Nightwish, the one and only Tarja Turunen. Take a look at their statement below the dramatic poster. I’ll opine some more afterwards, don’t worry.
“It’s been a while folks… but we have some news! New York City fans; get ready to welcome the one and only Tarja Turunen for a very special night September 6th; for an exclusive area show!”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: According to my records, it’s been a LONG time like they denoted and it was back in 2009 that Tarja last did a performance in NYC. It was a show that I was happy to have attended and it was all documented in words and images on a Concert Review that you can examine HERE. I’m really curious as to what kind of show this might be for the fans because Tarja has been experimenting with sound across the last few albums. She has done a few classical themed released, some Hard-edged Rock and even a Christmas Album (albeit a slightly darker one in tone). Considering this is a one-off show, and given the size of the Highline Ballroom, these tickets will likely sell out quick. You can get yours care of our Calendar entry HERE.
