    Decades World Tour 2018

    End of all Hope and Ameranth (unfortunately, as it's one of their biggest and most successfull singles) were the two weakest pieces for me. I can totally see why they switched them out of the set-list.

    Great full show, significantly better than their Wacken performance, imo! Other highlights apart from the already mentioned Devil for me are a really good live performance of Nemo (Marco even started headbanging to it, lol), a really fun and energetic Greatest Show and Earth and capping it off with an amazing Ghost Love Score. Tuomas was going wild during that and I love the joking between Emppu and Floor at the end!

    Wasn't there also an interview with Tuomas during the Imaginaerum tour where he said that he asked his band mates to tone down their activities on stage so not to distract from the audio experience of the music or something to that effect? Or did I imagine that, it was a long time ago after all :p

    *shrug* I'd rather have better playing and less head-banging than the other way around as it was in 2008, when imo the band was at its lowest point with its live performances (and not only due to Annettes vocals). I like the current energy that they bring on stage, it suits the songs and their kind of music.

    The Floor thread

    Yeah, sorry that you got 13 years of fandom drama crashing down on you. I have no idea about the technical aspects of singing, but I really liked the Floor video and what you are doing on your channel in general.

    Great visual quality, also, apparently they'll post the full set next week.

    The Floor thread

    Like everything on Youtube, the quality of those reaction channels is very varied. There are definitely some that only review Ghost Love Score because they know it will get them clicks, but there are also others who really start going deep into Nightwish discography and become passionate fans. There are at least three channels I remember where the reviewers then actually went to a concert. It is really paying off for Nightwish that they have such a strong live performances catalogue with Floor. Getting so much free positive publicity in our social media age is great for the band and the Decades tour has come just at the right time to benefit from that.

    I'm torn on this. I like the album version with Tarja and Tapio but Floor and Marco's version has really grown on me as the tour has gone on. Marco's delivery has imo improved a lot over the course of the tour, though I do agree that his tempo sometimes wanders a bit. I guess it might be a tough song to perform for him since in the original version the bass and the vocals were done by two people instead of one? As to the setlist, I'd definitely like to keep Slaying the Dreamer, there is such a great energy to the song and I think Floor definitely has made it her own. Don't see much chance for End of All Hope, I feel it is not a song where Floor really shines and that there is a reason they removed it from the set-list for Dark Chest of Wonders. I'm sad that Elvenpath will likely leave the set-list permanently, I really like the song despite the somewhat cheesy lyrics.

    Yes, I agree with the previous poster. Apart from a few early shows in the US where they still seemed to finding their feet, their live shows this tour have been of a consistent really high quality. I am really excited for the Live DVD of this tour!
