Good stuff again! Some of these I used to know, but got erased from my memory over time.


1. After Forever, ReVamp, Northward

2. Hmm... the London Philharmonic Orchestra?

3. Guitars, uileann pipes, hmm... flutes of some sort, voice? 😁

4. I'd say Century Child... but did he play on Over The Hills And Far Away? I think he didn't.

5. Sabaton drummer Hans Van Dahl (spelling?)

6. As an official band member it was EFMB... but he did play on Imaginaerum, Dark Passion Play... and perhaps even Once? I think I remember Pip Williams introducing Troy to NW during the recording of Once but did he play on that album? Not sure about this one.

7. Hmm... no idea! I'd say June something. But she did just turn 40 so the year is 1981.

8. Alyson Avenue? I don't know if she was part of any other bands before Nightwish.

9. Elize Ryd and Alyssa White-Gluz (but Alyssa barely sang at all IIRC as she wasn't familiar with the lyrics while Elize had auditioned to replace Tarja so she knew at least a couple of songs)

10. Tuomas' American friend who died of cancer... but I can't recall the name just now. Rowland?

Sorry, I couldn't make up my mind. 😁 I'll take a guess:

6. Dark Passion Play


That's great! Better than last time, you got 8/10! Your guess went right, by the way 😎 And really good thinking on question #9!

So I must have missed #7 and 10, no surprise there! 😁 I'll have to check the story relating to #6. About #9, I watched that show on YouTube a few times, a fascinating story! And Marko singing "Rest Calm" was fire! 🤘

You mean the Denver Debacle? Funny story, I was searching through internet if I could find DVD or Blu-ray of that show, but instead of finding that, I found this forum!! ☺️

Ha! 😄 Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a quality (or even complete) recording of this once-in-a-lifetime show, but perhaps there are still treasures to be unearthed.

I'm compiling a list of the available YouTube recordings from the various shows, and going chronologically I'm just getting started on the Imaginaerum tour.
