Nightwish

  • How Did You Discover Nightwish
    Must have been in the early 2000's, The Kinslayer was the background-music in a video I watched. But somehow they stayed always a bit "under my radar" until I saw the Ghost Love Score video from Wacken 2013 not too long ago. I was blown away and now I'm hooked.
  • How Many Times Seen Live?
    Two times, 2008 and 2016, but "only" on Festivals, waiting for other Bands, as I was not really into them back then (yeah, a shame, I know :( ). In 2016 I was already amazed by Floors singing and her Stage presence. But strangely I took me two more years to fully appreciate them.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I totally sign your "please not again" list. As this was the "Decades"-Tour, the live clip promoting the DVD should only be (in my opinion) one of the songs that made this tour so special: - Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean (holy crap I don't know how people can stand still for one second when this song is played) - Slaying The Dreamer - Dead Boys Poem (I don't know if a ballad qualifies as a promo-clip, but it is so awesome) - Deep Silent Complete - I would also like The Kinslayer or 10th Man Down, but this is more a personal than rational choice as these were the first two Nightwish songs I heard back then

    Decades World Tour 2018

    That is also what I read/heard. So I also think we'll get the Buenos Aires-Show (and hopefully some nice bonuses). I really can't wait for that DVD/Blu-Ray to be released. Watching the (some surprisingly good Quality) Videos on YouTube and reading the Reports of the People here on the forum who went to these Shows is so much fun, but makes me a bit sad on the other Hand that I did not attend those Shows. How could I, I re-discovered them literally days after the Shows here

    Well, on the other hand you are also "responsible" for people like Floor, so you are off the hook

    I think no further explanations are needed for this one on a Nightwish-Forum

    The Floor thread

    Wow, nice one! (Not exactly what Essexboyinwales and I thought of though ) Also love the text she wrote there, about the perception of metal-music in the Mainstream media and that she sees herself as an "ambassador of good Music" (which she certainly is ) in this show. This will be very interesting to watch for sure. We have a similar Show here in Germany but I never payed Attention to that to be honest, because I am not a fan of the "Mainstream/Radio"-Music represented there. With Floor there though, this is of course a must-see I am really curious how she will deal with the other Songs and vice versa (as NeoGeorg already stated)

    Haha Or maybe she announces that she will play the guitar on the upcoming Album and Emppu will sing. As we all know she and the band as a whole likes trying new stuff

    I'm very excited, too! Just wondering what that Music related thing could be? What is Music related that she has never done before? We will know more tomorrow

    2020/2021 Tour Setlist

    Sounds very uplifting indeed, thanks

    2020/2021 Tour Setlist

    Sooo I hope for at least a few of these (but of course not in this order): - Ghost Love Score - Storytime - Ghost River - Romanticide - Alpenglow or My Walden (I did not really care about those two at first but they really grew on me) - Stargazers - Dark Chest of Wonders - Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean/Dead Boy's Poem/10th Man down (I really hope they keep playing some of those from the last tour as I am a dumb person and "rediscovered" them literally only a few days after their show here in Novermber ) - Last Ride of the Day - Sahara - Sleeping Sun - Yours is an Empty Hope/ Shudder before the Beautiful/ Weak Fantasy - New Stuff (of course) But in the end, no matter what songs they will play, it will be great for sure

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    Saw them finally live on Friday, sold out (not too big) venue, a crowd going totally crazy, lots of beer and sweat, just how I like a concert It's been years since their last concert in Munich (they do not come to Europe very often), but it was totally worth the wait.
