Legendary Finnish symphonic metal band NIGHTWISH will perform live in New Zealand for the first time in January 2013!
NIGHTWISH rose to fame in the late 90s. In 1998 the band’s ‘Sacrament Of Wilderness’ single hit #1 on the Finnish music charts and by January 1999 their album ‘Oceanborn’ was in the top 5.
In Auckland NIGHTWISH will perform tracks from their latest album ‘Imaginaerum’, described as an audio visual testament of what the band has always been about.
According to NIGHTWISH’s chief songwriter Tuomas Holopainen, “The original idea I had was to film 13 short stories related to the songs with a connected storyline, shot by Stobe Harju. It was important from the very beginning that the album would work as its own individual piece of art, as well. It is a thematic album about life itself, about imagination, love, goodness and beauty, with a touch of darkness and melancholy.”
NIGHTWISH – Tuesday January 8th at Studio Auckland.
