Fugazi Posted July 8, 2021 Share Posted July 8, 2021 Showtime, Storytime (2013) recorded on August 3 2013 at Wacken Open Air Germany during the Imaginaerum World Tour (2012-2013) Track list (with relevant threads when available) Live performance (CD/DVD/BR*) Dark Chest Of Wonders Wish I Had An Angel She Is My Sin Ghost River Ever Dream Storytime I Want My Tears Back Nemo Last Of The Wilds Bless The Child Romanticide Amaranth Ghost Love Score Song Of Myself Last Ride Of The Day Outro: Imaginaerum Bonus Tracks (DVD/BR) I Want My Tears Back (live from Tuska Open Air Helsinki June 30 2013) Ghost Love Score (live from El Teatro Flores Buenos Aires December 14-15 2012) Please Learn The Setlist In 48 Hours (tour documentary) YouTube Nightwish Table Hockey Tournament Christmas Song For A Lonely Documentarist (YouTube) Note: * Take note that the Blu-Ray transfer of this recording is slightly (but noticeably) slower that the CD/DVD recording. If you're thinking about buying this album, do consider choosing the DVD over the Blu-Ray version. Here's a review I found on Amazon that will explain the issue better than I could: Quote Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 25, 2020 by Dizdoz Purple OK - firstly this is not a review about the performance, which is absolutely stunning, but reflects a fault on the Blu-Ray. I believe it to be a coding error, almost as if the data stream could somehow have been edited at 25fps but it is in fact playing back at 24fps, which is the framerate stated on the box and in the metadata information of the Blu-Ray file. None of the songs play back at the correct speed; for example the Blu-Ray 'Romanticide' runs at 5m 07s from first to last note, but the official live music video (an edit taken from the exact same concert) run time is 4m 55s. If the Blu-Ray is over speeded to replay 25 frames within 1 second, i.e. at ~1.042x speed, then 'Romanticide' runs at the correct speed. Because the audio pitch is correct, it suggests framerate encoding is the issue, and the fault runs for the duration of the concert. This is such a shame because the quality of the visuals and the sound mix is excellent, and showcases an incredible band at an unbelievably high level of performance. As another reviewer has stated regarding the same playback speed issue, there is an indefinable 'loss' to the overall atmosphere and energy of the concert. From the band: (from Nuclear Blast) What better way to conclude the year as to recapture one of its outstanding highlights by revisiting Finnish Symphonic Metal legends NIGHTWISH taking the likewise legendary Wacken Open Air by storm? After being decorated with triple platinum status in Finland as well as gold status in numerous European countries (Germany, Switzerland, Poland, among others) for their most current studio masterpiece »Imaginaerum« and following the highly successful release of their very own fantasy motion picture »Imaginaerum by Nightwish«, the band is closing in its cycle of the `Imaginaerum World Tour´ with a festival triple – Wacken Open Air being the first of those final shows. The `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013 visited in 34 countries, consisted of 104 shows with total audience attendance of over 1,5 million fans. And what would be a better way to celebrate the grand finale as to capture the entire show at Wacken Open Air – the world’s biggest heavy metal festival – for a live DVD/Blu-ray? The live show in the front of 85 000 screaming metalheads was directed by Ville Lipiäinen, filmed with seventeen cameras and has a total duration of 85 minutes. Mastermind and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen states: “The time has come soon to wrap up the magical & memorable one-and-a-half year `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013! We still have three shows left, one of them being at the legendary Wacken Open Air Metal Festival on the 3rd of August. This show will be something extra special, since it will be released later this year on DVD/Blu-ray, together with a massive `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013 documentary. Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen, has been nothing but incredible during her time in Nightwish on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film! “ The second disc consists of 120-minute tour documentary ‘Please Learn The Setlist in 48 Hours’, with no short of drama or overall madness. Also, there is a 16-minute NIGHTWISH Table Hockey Tournament, filmed on tour. On top of this there are two music clips: ‘I want my tears back’ (Live at Hartwall Arena) and ‘Ghost Love Score’ (Live in Buenos Aires).
