NIGHTWISH WILL START THEIR 9-MONTH ”DECADES: WORLD TOUR” FROM NORTH AMERICA
In March 2018, symphonic metal legends NIGHTWISH will begin their 9-month-long 'DECADES: WORLD TOUR 2018' starting with 34 shows in North America.
The band will have a very special setlist 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 setlist 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. On the night of the show, every ticket holder will receive a copy of the 2CD as a memento of this unique tour.
To accompany the tour, Nuclear Blast will release a 2CD compilation »Decades« on the 9th of March 2018.

Symphonic Metal band from Kitee (Finland).

A creation of keyboardist and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen, Nightwish formed in 1996 as an acoustic band. The first incarnation of the band included singer Tarja Turunen and guitar player Erno "Emppu" Vuorinen, along with Tuomas himself.

In 1997, drummer Jukka Nevalainen joined the band, which recorded its first album, Angels Fall First. The next year, bass player Sami Vänskä joined in.

Nightwish's popularity began to grow, reaching its top in 2002, when their album Century Child became a top-seller (it made Gold in Finland in two hours, and Platinum in two weeks). In the meantime, bassist Sami Vänskä was replaced by the bass player of Tarot (and ex-Sinergy), Marco Hietala, who would also provide some male vocals.

In October 2005 the band fired the singer and founding member, Tarja Turunen, motivating their decision with her selfish behavior and lack of respect towards the band and fans, which grew worse in the last years. Turunen was replaced by Anette Olzon in 2007. Olzon left the band in October 2012. Floor Jansen took up the vocal duties for the rest of the tour. Jansen was finally made an official member in October 2013. At the same time Troy Donockley was also promoted from a touring member to a full-time member.

In August 2014 Jukka Nevalainen announced that he cannot peform on the upcoming album due to his long-term insomnia, and that the album would be recorded with Kai Hahto instead. It is currently not known whether he will continue with the band.

Current lineup:
Tuomas Holopainen - keyboards
Emppu Vuorinen - guitars
