PiercingMetal Thoughts: To say that I am excited about this announcement is an understatement because Nightwish have remained one of my very favorite live bands since the years before I even had this little home on the web. As many tenured readers know, it was the Nightwish gig at L’Amour’s way back when that led me down this path of discussing, photographing and spreading the word on that which is extraordinary in the Metal scene of the world. It’s kept the band special to me personally and I am blown away by the level of success they have achieved along with the amazing music that they keep on delivering. You can be rest-assured that I will be at the New York City show and as I close up this announcement I wonder what the readership thinks about it. Chime in down below in the comments and I will see you next time.
