The band is spending the summer of 2015 in Europe, with a number of select festival performances in Belgium, Finland, Germany, and more.
South and Central America are up next in September and October with over a dozen shows in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and more. Relentless trekking will continue in November with a triumphant return to Europe for a month-long headlining journey across every major point of the old continent.
Australia will follow in January 2016, and then it’s back to the US of A in February and March for more of that relentless touring.
Nightwish are currently promoting their latest album “Endless Forms Most Beautiful,” and both fans and critics agree that this metal team still knows how to deliver a crushing blow.

Known for operatic voice of Tarja Turunen and her vocal successors Anette Olzon and Floor Jansen, the band released its debut album “Angels Fall First” in 1997, establishing a national reputation of a strong upcoming band.
Things kept looking up for the group with 1998’s “Oceanborn,” while the major breakthrough came in 2000 with the release of their third studio album, “Wishmaster.” Thanks to hits like the title track and “Kinslayer,” the gang managed to storm over Europe and garner a massive following.
Although Nightwish always garnered more fans on the old continent, their music was quick to finds its way to every corner of the world. The two subsequent albums, 2002’s “Century Child” and 2004’s “Once” brought new hit singles such as “Bless the Child” and “Nemo,” increasing the band’s album sales, fanbase, and chart figures.
A major breaking point occurred in 2006 with the departure of Tarja, but the band recuperated and kept charging forward with new vocalist Anette Olzon, who was ultimately replaced by the current singer Floor Jansen.
Regardless of what future might bring, Nightwish’s place in the pantheon is more than secure, as fans and critics unanimously praise them as the key figure in popularization of symphonic metal.
The group’s latest studio album was released in 2015 under the title of “Endless Forms Most Beautiful.” As always, the team is set to relentlessly tour across the globe in order to properly promote it.
The current lineup of the band features Tuomas Holopainen on keyboards and piano, Emppu Vuorinen on guitar, Jukka Nevalainen on drums and percussion, Marco Hietala on bass and occasional lead vocals , multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley, and Floor Jansen on lead vocals.
