The Press Release:
October 21st 2005 is a historic date for every NIGHTWISH fan – many tears flowed, yet the foundation was laid for a new beginning and the ongoing continuity of the band. What subsequently appeared as the DVD titled End Of An Era was not only the final show of their mega-selling “Once” tour, but also the very last joint performance with their singer Tarja Turunen. Due to all of these facets and more, the DVD will give you goose bumps many times over, yet it crowns the end of the Tarja chapter with a unique show that could hardly have been better or more spectacular. The setlist is stunning and contains 18 hymns, such as the opening “Dark Chest Of Wonders,” “Sleeping Sun,” “Nemo” and “Bless The Child” through to the final “Wish I Had An Angel”. If you do not already own this live masterpiece, you can now look forward to the extensive new edition.
On December 07th End Of An Era will be re-released as 3LP and Earbook formats including BluRay, 2CD and 3LP.

There are good live concert DVD’s and then there are absolutely incredible ones and this my fellow Metal heads is the one that you will not easily forget, turn off or be left the same after watching. The Symphonic Operatic Metal fanatics know full well that Nightwish is one of the superpowers in this genre and had held the banner high after numerous releases of note. The concert was filmed in the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland back in October of 2005 as the band supported their latest release “Once”. It was a show that found the band on top of their game and raising the bar ever higher as far as both live performance and musical content were concerned. From start to finish the film keeps your attention as they explode upon the stage with their opener “Dark Chest Of Wonders” from the moment it begins and when lead singer Tarja Turunen walks out the crowd is absolutely ecstatic. Since this was the final night of touring for the “Once” album they were treated like returning heroes and admired legends. Those that had luckily witnessed a Nightwish concert in the past can attest to how exciting they are on stage musically and how tight the delivery of their songs comes across. Tarja herself has an incredible voice and while she seems able to break down walls with it at times there are other moments were she is as soft and subtle as a whisper. The show itself primarily focuses on the last release as well as touching upon some music from “Century Child” and while it features some of their classics in the mix for good measure you will need to purchase “From Wishes To Eternity” if you wanted the very old stuff. With this being a hometown closing show I had expected and hoped to find more of these in the set but it would not be the case. Continue reading “The End Of An Era” [DVD] by Nightwish→
