Early this morning, we were treating to a very welcome and unexpected tour announcement! After hearing that Nightwish will take most of 2017 off, before beginning to work on their next album, it seemed as though we would have a few more years to wait before seeing them here in North America again. However, it appears we're getting a bit of a retrospective tour, which appears to focus on the bands older material. This promises to be an extremely special event. See the full press release below for details!
In March 2018, Nightwish will begin their 9-month-long 'DECADES: WORLD TOUR 2018' starting with 34 shows in North America.
Nightwish will have a very special set list for the tour, featuring rarely heard material from the earlier era, and excitingly for both band and fans, they will revisit the old songs with some new twists.
This set list will be a "one-off" and only performed on this 'DECADES:
WORLD TOUR 2018".
Pre-sales will start on Monday, June 12th for most of these North American venues.
To accompany the tour, Nuclear Blast will release a 2-CD compilation, DECADES, on March 9. 2018. On the night of the show, every ticket holder will receive a copy of the 2CD as a memento of this unique tour.
