Venue: Nokia Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: Volbeat
Date: 5/2/2009
Label: Roadrunner Records

Last September the Big Apple was excited to find Nightwish making a return visit once again to close out the touring cycle in this part of the world for their release “Dark Passion Play”. The band was storming the country with fellow Finns Sonata Arctica but sadly a bad illness would hit their singer Anette and the New York show would be cancelled much to the disappointment of the fans. The show must go on was the mantra of the night as the guys in Sonata Arctica delivered an absolutely stunning set for those who chose to remain in the venue for the now free performance. We were glad to be there for it and more can be learned about that particular show by clicking HERE. Fast forward to this evening’s proceedings and a once again healthy Anette Olzon fronts her companions in Nightwish for a sold out Nokia Theatre Times Square appearance. The strange thing was that the city had been hit with a number of cases of the Swine Flu recently and resultant of this breaking news I would not be the only one on edge as I walked into a jam packed venue loaded with some two thousand plus people. Nightwish would bring the Danish rockers Volbeat along for this tour and they were an interesting choice based on the vastly different type of music that they would be delivering.
