Nightwish Announce Four North American Shows
Nightwish are getting ready to release their first new album in five years, Human. :II: Nature. (not a typo — that’s the name of the record, weird punctuation and all). And while fans in North America have no doubt been nightwishing that this meant a tour was imminent, today they learn a hard lesson: you can nightwish in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills up first. This is exactly the reason I only ever daywish.
Which is to say, Nightwish will tour North America… but they’re only doing four shows in three cities. So if you don’t live in New York, L.A., or Toronto, look into vacation time and travel arrangements.
The dates — which include Apocalyptica for the Los Angeles shows — are below. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
09/08 Toronto, ONT @ Meridian Hall
09/11 Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Palladium (w/ Apocalyptica)
09/12 Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Palladium (w/ Apocalyptica)
09/15 New York, NY @ Terminal 5
European and U.K. fans are luckier, ’cause Nightwish will actually be doing a proper tour for ’em.
