Back in December, the mighty Nightwish announced their live-streaming event called “An Evening With Nightwish” and if you missed that one you can click HERE to see the original news and the specific details. Sadly, the band has been forced to move said event to a few months later which I’m sharing down below.
Dear people. I am leaving Nightwish and my public life.
For a quite a few years now I haven’t been able to feel validated by this life. We have streaming company big guns demanding 9/5 work from artists of inspiration while unfairly sharing the profits. Even among the artists. We’re the banana republic of the music industry. Biggest tour promoters squeeze percentages even from our own merchandise while paying dividends to Middle East. Apparently some theocrasies can take the money from the music that would get you beheaded or jailed there without appearing as hypocrites. Just a couple of examples here.
Finland’s own Symphonic wonder Nightwish have just announced a pair of special livestream events for next March. As you know these kinds of things aren’t new news anymore but we are finding bigger and bigger bands making this jump because touring just isn’t possible right now. We recently learned that KISS was going to do one (discussed HERE) and also the magnificent Trans-Siberian Orchestra as well (discussed HERE and happening tomorrow evening). Now let’s examine the bands announcement from their social networking.
In the past, a Monday always generally started with some tour announcements so let’s start ours with some 50/50 news from the Symphonic Sensations of Nightwish. The band recently announced the cancellation of all 2020 tour dates for North America but at the same time have revealed some rescheduled ones. Let’s look.
The Band Statement:
Due to the current situation surrounding covid-19 in North America we are forced to postpone our shows.
The Press Release:

(psst, I posted that news HERE), that will be released on April 10, 2020 and will be a double album containing 9 tracks on the main CD and one long track, divided into eight chapters on CD 2.
