    Your biggest frustration at the past was going solo of the band members. Should we (the fans of NW) be worried about your Auri solo thing, and wasting your inspiration on that thing?

    Decades World Tour 2018

    It's cool to see as a guest performance, but I actually prefer Marco. Floor sounds lovely in the clips from this show. The operatic parts sound better than ever.

    - You look like a cheerful guy. Can you tell me how do you deal with daily problems and anxieties? - How can I annoy you? - Do you feel like Yoko Ono? - Do you use social networks? - Do you play some PC games? - Do you smoke weed? - Where is situated the soul in human body? - What can makes you believe in God again?

    The Tuomas thread

    Great news! Hopefully it will include most songs performed on this tour, one way or another. On a different note, I'd love to see a new album by For My Pain... but I feel that ship sailed a long time ago. Fallen is still one of my favourite Gothic Metal albums ever.

    Ask Tuomas [OPEN]

    Hello from Germany, Mr. Holopainen. - Do you miss any meat recipe, maybe german Currywurst or Fish? - Where are you bracelets? - Are you anxious type of person? - After listening to Auri album I concluded that you suffer from midlife crisis. Is that true? Do you feel that there is less time left? - Why do you look uncomfortable in video interviews? - Do you feel any pressure to make a magnum opus and masterpiece for Floor voice? - What is the most awkward thing you saw from the stage in audience? - What is your biggest dream or remaining ambition for Nightwish? Do you want Nightwish to become next Iron Maiden? - Did you read the Bible? - Will the next album be more heavy, maybe proggy or more metal? - After how much songs do you usually stop composing? How do you know "that's it, I finished now"? - Why do you always write usually 10 songs? Can we expect double album from Nightwish? - Do you decide if someone else from the band write a song? - Would you call Wilska growling for the next album? - Do you ever soothe your nervousness or anxiety with loud metal music like Rammstein or Panthera? - Why did you create Auri when you say that with Nightwish you can do anything? - Will the next album will be original or full of recycled ideas? - How much wine makes you hammered? - What is your top summer destinations? Do you like swimming in hot sea? - What do you choose: Summer or Winter? - Have you ever thought about suicide? - Have you ever humiliated or bullied someone intentionally? - What do you think about making music without an inspiration? You know, what if you must write a song or album on purpose, something like Sleeping Sun. That ballad is a greatest hit of yours and you said that it was written with ''recipe''. Can writing with pressure makes a good song / album? - When will you play with an orchestra? Maybe the last show of this tour? - Did you ever seen this video clip? What is your comment? - Why you dragged back your stage position? - Why do you love hats so much? Aren't you afraid that that will makes your hair fall? - Don't you think that God helped you to become famous? Thank you very much and sorry for my English. See you in NÜRNBERG.

    Sports

    So, the World Cup is over. Best thing of the whole tournament were the many surprises and so-called favourites hitting the dust!!!! Not so much fancy and attractive football. Croatia and Belgium most attractive teams, France the most solid and Russia the feistiest team. I can live with Modric as best player. Best goal? Probably Belgium's second against Brazil. Looking forward to the next World Cup? Not at all!! And that corrupt imbecile of a FIFA president Infantino calling it the best World Cup ever! They should call him Infantilo! Over to the Tour de France.........yesterday absolute mayhem on the cobbles in Northern France.... Real men.........., no time wasters, no foul mouthing towards the referee, no nonsense, no diversIf there are any divers, they most likely end up in hospital!

    Ask Tuomas [OPEN]

    Hi Tuomas, thanks for your time hope you're doing fine - speaking about the new Nightwish album, you said that you wrote some of the material. I am curious about the creative process. How do you come up with a song? Do you first write the melody and then the lyrics, or is it a mixed process? - will the new Nightwish album be inspired by Dawkings works? - You said that The greatest show on earth was originally longer than the published one. Will you use the cutted parts for the new album? - are you filming material from the decades tour? maybe for a future release? (live album/dvd/documentary) - Which Tv series are you following right now (if you have any time while on tour), or can you recommend a movie that you saw in the past months? - will there be another AURI album? - I know this is something that is always being asked but, is there even a remote possibility of a once-in-a-lifetime concert with a full orchestra and choir? (Planet Hell is on my thoughts right now)

    Ask Marco [OPEN]

    1. As a vaper myself, I want to ask you how long do you use the E-cig? Do you build your coils or simply buy it? What is your favorite e-juice? I see you smoking cigarettes too, so do you combine them or trying to quit them for good? 2. How do you make decision to grow your beard even longer? Is it a keeper or just a little change? 3. Whats the thing that frustrates you the most on tour? 4. Tell me your 5 bad habits? 5. Do you have a bucket list? 6. Where are your ear rings? 7. Do you have any songs or plans (ideas) to compose for the upcoming NW album? 8. Was it strange to sing with Tarja after all these years? 9. Are you an atheist? 10. How do you know if some good riff pop-out? Do you represent your work to someone firstly (to your kids maybe), or you just know that it is good? 11. What is your biggest fear(s)? 12. What do you think about the flat earth movement? 13. Is it easy to step in Tapio shoes and sing 'Devil' and 10th Man Down? 14. How do you 'nourish' your voice through all these years? 15. How do you comment the 'attacks' you (as a band) received for the so-called self-plagiarism for EFMB album? 16. Can you cook? If so, what’s your favorite dish to make? 17. Compare this Nightwish and Nightwish before 15 years ago and tell us what do you miss, and what do you enjoy more now. 18. Do you think that it is time to make more heavy and more technical album? 19. Have you ever placed a bet on your hair and beard? 20. Let's say that you cannot perform with backing tapes one night. Would you cancel the show or you will continue playing raw like the old days?

    According to what Robert says here it seems like 2019 is certain. I am also very curious on the new direction. I would like to see some older elements meet new ones. I don’t think the album will be much influenced by My Indigo. It was a whole album where Sharon could get this music “out of her system” (not saying it in a negative way) and she is also not the main composer either. But I’m definitely very curious. I hope we’ll get an EP or at least a single this year.

    Ask Floor [OPEN]

    Hi Floor, hope you're doing fine and thanks for your time. we are waiting for you in december in Milan can't wait! so here's my questions: - how do you deal with your baby while on tour? is she curious about the cities and new things she sees while touring? - are you teaching your baby both dutch and swedish? - having a baby and "aging" have somehow influenced your voice? perhaps it seems to me that your voice has deepen through the years or is it only mine impression? - from Hannes social medias I saw you've been in Italy on vacation, hope you enjoyed your stay. Is there an italian city/place that you've never been but you wish to visit someday? (have you learned some italian?) - besides metal, what other bands/singers do you like? - I really love your new stage outfit (the tight black one). How do you choose your stage outfits? do you come with ideas to INGEBORG STEENHORST or does she propose different things and you choose between them? - How is your in-ear monitors setup? - Do you follow any tv series? - Is there a song from the old era not in the decades setlist that you would like to sing? - lately we have seen pictures and videos of you without your nose-ring. is it something related to a change in your look or with the baby? - how do you train your voice? - Northward. I'm very curious about this project and really looking forward to it. Have you a release date for the first single (and video) and the album? - Northward. Can you tease us with something about the lyrics? Have they been all written back in 2008 or have you added/changed something while recording? is there a theme? - Northward. Will it be a one and only album or maybe there will be the opportunity to have something more in the future? (I guess touring is not an option)

    Ask Marco [OPEN]

    Hey Marco, I've read your book (which is great) and read that you went through a divorce. I went through a divorce myself and kickboxing and music helped me get through it. What helped you get through yours? Greets Leonie from The Netherlands

    Ask Floor [OPEN]

    Hey Floor, First of all I wanted to say, that (as a fellow Dutch woman) I am proud of what you do. Although most of The Netherlands don't know you. But hopefully that changes soon. You are still 'Neerlands trots' (Dutch pride) to me! My question is: what went through your mind when you got the phonecall to be in the band? Love, Leonie from The Netherlands

    Ask Emppu [OPEN]

    Dear Emppu, Playing in bands like Nightwish and Brother Firetribe are probably a dream come true. Do you have any other dreams or phantasies that you would like to come true? Much love, Leonie from The Netherlands P.S.: I hope you've found a nice space for the string art guitar I gave you in London! ;D

    Within Temptation

    Why is everybody assuming the album for sure won't be released this year? At least from the translations I read, there's a lot of ambiguity on that matter. I mean, it says they will tour next year to support the new album, but it doesn't say the album itself will be released in 2019. They could very well release it at the end of the year and then "companion the release of the new album" with a tour next year. I'm not saying it'll be released this year for sure, but I don't think we have the information to be certain either way. At the very least, I'd bet we'll get a new single and a clip before the end of 2018. A couple of new songs played at the Europe tour seems reasonable, too. Anyway, I'm very, very curious to see/hear this new direction they're going. One of the things that fascinates me about this band is we can't really predict what they'll do next. Sharon saying things like it'll be a mix of Hydra with The Unforgiving, very heavy, yet influenced by My Indigo and bringing some completely new elements to the table, it's all over the place to me. But it makes me beyond hyped. The Unforgiving is my favorite album from them and one of my favorite albums overall (and I always surprise myself with Hydra, remembering how much I like it everytime I listen to it), so I'd be over the moon with anything close to it. I don't get people who look at that album I say they sold out (which is a pretty innocent thing to say, overall). It's probably the most ambitous Symphonic Metal album there is, even defying what Symphonic Metal can be. At the same time, I'm intrigued to hear the new, surprising elements Sharon keeps talking about. They could be anything, as far as I know. Now I'm probably starting to embarrass myself with all the gushing over WT and should stop. I guess I'm just hyped and needed to vent about it a wee bit. LOL

    Ask Troy [OPEN]

    1. Let me do some quote from youtube video about your openly secular thing: Whats your opinion about these kind of comments? You are accused very often that you washed Tuomas' brain, that you made him be vegetarian/vegan, you made him to be atheist, you turned him against being metal, and such things. Does these kind of comments hurt you maybe? 2. Do you mind that your previous band Iona broke up? 3. Did any member of the band (or crew) tried to play your Uilleann pipes? 4. Did you really need to confront the whole metal community by writing on your FB page that the metalheads should stand aside of AURI while advertising that exact same album on the main FN fanpage of Nightwish which consists mainly of those exact same metalheads? 5. Do you like to growl like Tapio Wilska? 6. Do you think that the album AURI is being little forced? 7. Why you don't play the flute/recorder part in The Carpenter C-part of the song? 8. What happened with “Bongo, Bongo, Hey! Hey!” song? 9. Let's say that you get time machine to go back. What would you change in your life? 10. Why you never did a stage diving? I think you promised it once. 11. Last time you said that you voted YES for Brexit. What if you need a visa for playing in Europe with NW in the future and you don't get it for some reason? 12. Is there a thing that you and Tuomas don't аgree? 13. Do you still have any dreams/desires you want to achieve?

    Qué genial A esta altura creo que ya no va a haber cambios en el setlist. Va a ser el mismo hasta que termine el tour.

    Ask Emppu [OPEN]

    1. Are you an atheist? 2. Why you started to look rusty and scooped on stage? 3. Why you stopped headbanging like maniac? Especially dual headbanging with Marco like the old times? 4. Why you don't use different tuned guitars on stage? Why you need to lower down the old songs? Don't you think that lowering down the songs is a sin? 5. What's the most stressful thing on long tour for you? 6. Do you have any plans or ideas for writing a song(s) for the upcoming NW album? I really miss your songs, and I think that Floor deserves it. 7. Have you ever been so drunk on stage, so much that you can not perform? 8. How can you cope to be father and going on hectic tours? 9. Why you never did a stage diving? 10. Were you terrified by the idea for Troy catching the second guitar? As I remember, you said that Nightwish don't need а second guitarist? 11. Do you still think that a good song starts with a guitar solo and has at least 2 more solos? 12. Have you ever broken a guitar on purpose? 13. Do you know how to play harp? 14. What do you listen when home alone? Any bands to recommend? 15. Have you ever wanted to pee in the middle of a gig?
