Algo del backstage de grabación de la canción y del video de "An Empty Dream" de la película argentina "Corazón Muerto".



Se pueden escuchar varios segundos de la canción, por ahora me resulta muy interesante.

De hecho le dio a "Ciaran's Well" un toque de "The Ring" :) Es una historia parecida. No igual, pero parecida.


A mi me encanta también cuando usa esa atmósfera oscura (como en Darkness o Lucid Dreamer también)

Tarja to release live performance “Luna Park Ride” on May 29th, 2015 on earMUSIC - The live performance is available for the first time as audio and standalone video - including over 70 minutes of bonus material


Imagine an enchanted audience in front of an enormous stage in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Thousands of fans screaming just for her: the one and only Tarja. Having their cameras and cell phones ready to film what will become one hell of a performance, Tarja finally appears, dressed fully in black and with the most beautiful smile on her face; she is in full bloom. Let the show begin.

Filmed at Stadium Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina on March 27th, 2011 during Tarja’s “What Lies Beneath World Tour 2011”, “Luna Park Ride” will be released as 2CD, 2LP, DVD, Blu-ray and Download on May 29th, 2015 on earMUSIC.

Previously included in a very limited edition of her Top 5 live production “Act I”, May 29th finally sees the stand-alone release of the breathtaking “Luna Park Ride”. For the first time available on audio and video, the fan filmed material is topped with 14 (!) bonus live performances and offers the full package including previously unseen photos.

Ranging from Tarja classics like “I Walk Alone” to “Until My Last Breath”, the high quality audio mixed by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, Robert Plant) and fan video recordings also feature Nightwish rarities such as “Stargazers” or the electrifying medley of “Where Were You Last Night”, Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” and Bon Jovi’s classic “Livin’ On A Prayer”.

The 70 minute bonus material, also mixed by Tim Palmer, takes the fans on a tour of Tarja’s festival appearances and club shows from 2010 to 2014: From Tarja’s 2010 show at Masters Of Rock in Czech Republic with her band, choir and full orchestra live on stage, to a 2011 performance at Summerbreeze festival in Germany including a very special Gold Award presentation, continues with a recent performance in Ekaterinenburg, Russia as well as a performance together with Van Canto at last year’s Wacken Open Air. The bonus material finishes with three fan favourites – “Never Enough”, “Die Alive” and “Victim Of Ritual” – performed at Summerbreeze Festival 2014.

“Luna Park Ride” will surely take you on a wild ride!

Insisto en que estoy más emocionado por los extras que por el Luna Park 2011 que ya lo vi hasta el hartazgo cuando salió en su momento.


Y sí, podría haber sido mejor un DVD de la nueva gira.

Veo que sigue adicta a sus bailecitos extraños. Jajaja.


Suena muy bien, es increíble la cantidad de gente que es capaz de convocar y se la ve muy comoda en el escenario como cabeza de banda. Yo creo que ella nunca se esperaba esto después del despido.

No por algo se largó a llorar apenas terminó el recital. Show o no, la verdad que es fuerte esa imágen, verla de rodillas con la bandera argentina con todas las lágrimas en su rostro, tremendo.


La verdad que yo tampoco me esperé que llenara el Teatro El Círculo en el 2011. Recuerdo hacer un panorama del teatro apenas nos hicieron entrar, estaba vacío y pensaba "y bueno, seremos 100 locos que nos gustá NW/Tarja, ni en sueños llena este lugar". Antes de empezar hago otra vista panorámica, el teatro repleto xD "OK, me cerró la boca".




Amo a esta mujer xD Me encanta que se prenda a estas cosas para nada serias

Gira en Navidad



El Q&A de ayer:


This is all I could find in the comments (some may have already been posted):


Q: What made you want to film the Luna Park Ride, dearTarja Turunen ?


A: Actually we didn't film the LPR or the bonus material ourselves. When we released my fist live video “ACT I” we wanted to add something special for the limited Media Box Set.

We got to know that the venue had arranged multi track recording of the show, so we sent the files to Tim Palmer and we got a great audio mix from the show.

But still we didn't have any images from the show!!

So we asked the fans that have filmed the concert to send us their material and surprisingly got lots of great phone and small cameras’ footage from you.

We only added the images filmed by cameras that were used for the screens during the show and we arranged the edition of the video. We were very happy with the result for a “non professional” video recording. It gives you a special feeling like if the listener would be among the crowd.


Q:Hey, Tarja! Luna Park Ride features a performance of Anteroom of Death, in which you share the stage with Van Canto. How was it like to perform live with so many singers, and only voices, choirs and drums to accompany you?


A: It was very kind from Van Canto to invite me for their concert at Wacken Open Air last year. I have known them for some years now and met them many times. Since they worked in the song Anteroom of Death for my album, we have been wishing to perform together. Finally and luckily this happened.

Is not the first time for me to sing with choir. I have been myself part of several choirs like church, opera, kids and university choirs to mention few. Also I have collaborated and still do, with choirs in my classical concerts. Surely to have all these singers on such a stage like Wacken made it particularly special


Q: What is the funniest or most amazing memory from Luna Park Ride?


A: Luna Park is a very respected venue in Buenos Aires. One of those that as an artist you always wish to have the chance to play in.

I have gone to see shows there from great musicians and bands like Deep Purple, Scorpions, Joe Satriani, Ringo Starr, Alice in Chains, Tears for Fears and Roxette. So it was an emotional experience indeed to play there!


Q: How did you choose which performances to put on the bonus disc?


A: We didn't film nor record any of the bonus material ourselves. We checked with festivals and venues I’ve been performing in the last years and found out that few have registered images and audio from my shows. They let us use their material so what you see as the bonus material was what we could get. We tried to improve the images as much as possible and we mixed the audio again with Tim Palmer who has also mixed ACT I and the Luna Park concert.


Q: Why did you choose to make another live dvd from a WLB tour's concert instead of one from Colours on the Road's?


A: ACT I was based in the albums “My Winter Storm” and “What Lies Beneath” and ACT II will be based in “Colours in the Dark” and my next studio album.

LPR is a special product for you made by you. The Luna Park concert was very emotional and dear to me and for that reason I wanted to make it available for all to see. Nevertheless, it is not comparable to the technical production of ACT I or of the future ACT II.


Q: Why did you decide to make a DVD only for this show? It is the same show we've got in the mediabook of Act I, so is there any special reason?


A: I love this show and the fact that as we were not filming it for a DVD release, we were all relaxed and having a lot of fun on stage. It is usually harder and nerve breaking for us knowing that there are cameras following you. The Media Book of ACT I was a limited edition of only 1000 units. It has long been out of stock and the record company strongly believes that there are many more fans worldwide willing to have it.


Q: Mike Terrana made a copyright claim on all trailer and videos from "Luna Park Ride" and Earmusic deleted the videos ... what happened?


A: I must say that this came as a surprise for me. I got to know about it at the same time as you did by reading the legend displayed by Youtube on the videos. We are at the moment discussing with Mike what are his claims about.


Q: Hi!

My question: is there any reason why the two live DVDs you have released to date are of the shows you gave in Argentina? (For my part, the better. I am more than proud to have been part of both :)).


A: LPR is a companion to ACT I. It was originally released as a bonus DVD in a limited edition box set of ACT I. So as a package it made a lot of sense for us that both concerts were filmed in Argentina. I have also released a live video “Beauty and the Beat” filmed in Czech Republic and another one with “Harus” live in Finland. I have plans already for my next live video ACT II and I can only say that it won’t be a complete concert filmed in Argentina.


Q: Hi Tarja Turunen, among the bonus live of LPR, there will be " Never Enough" from the Summerbreeze show, which was a funny and original footage, so how did you come up with this amazing idea to take the camera and filming the crowd such an " in front the scene" ? could you carry the camera at your ease while you singing, or was it difficult for you ? I've never seen an artist doing this, mayebe you're the first ! (or not).


A: Actually the camera was very heavy! I agreed with the film crew to do this in advance, but didn't have time to rehearse it at all. So at the beginning of “Never Enough” when the camera was handed to me, I got surprised by its weight, lost my concentration and completely forgot the lyrics of the song!! This is a real live recording, so you can go and check it yourself in the video

It also didn’t help that the camera had a wire. I am used to run on stage with my wireless handheld microphone, so to have suddenly a wire was again, not easy while singing.

It was fun though!

¡Buenísimo! Gracias por compartirlo.


Una lástima que el nuevo DVD no sea acá, pero es justo para los demás fans. Es que me acuerdo esa semana que Tarja estuvo en mi ciudad, y escuchar los ensayos desde la puerta del teatro, ver seguido a sus músicos y que todo se de entre amigos y conocidos fue realmente una exeperiencia inolvidable :) Veremos quiénes serán los nuevos afortunados apra Act II.


Sorpresivo lo de Mike Terrana.... ¿qué pasó con el Tío Mike? xD

Yo comprendo que ame Argentina, que sea su hogar y demás, pero ciertamente que cada DVD de ella sea filmado en Argentina, no ofrece variedad, seamos honestos. Me da gusto que para el ACT II piense grabar en otra parte. Si no, ya parecería Opeth (quienes han sacado a la fecha 3 DVD's en vivo, los tres grabados en Inglaterra...)
