Looking forward to see what other shows they have planned next summer. I don't expect a return to North America though, probably only a few Finnish festivals?

With Floor's solo tour in April - May, and the shows in Asia (if it happens), nothing is off the table as I don't expect a return to North America either. There could be some Finnish shows, though I question where the final show of the tour would be? Maybe Kitee or Helsinki?

There's been a reshuffling of the 2023 Asian shows, so it's now:

  • Jan 15 - Singapore
  • Jan 17 - Manila
  • Jan 19 - Taipei

Tapiei has been moved from Jan 13 and and there's no longer any mention of a show in Jakarta on January 17. Also no mention of the China dates, aren't they part of Asia as well?¬†ūü§Ē

Looking at the past tours, it has been

  • Helsinki
  • Tokyo
  • Hildesheim (Germany)
  • Helsinki
  • Helsinki
  • Moscow
  • Nivala (Finland)
  • Ludwigsburg (Germany)
  • Siilinj√§rvi (Finland)

My guess would be some festival like Graspop or Hellfest, but they probably won't do the same festival two years in a row.

Beat me to it¬†ūüėÖ¬†Thank you Fugazi for uploading the setlist.

Oops sorry! ūüėĀ

It would appear that any changes will have to wait until the European leg. I think there's a recent interview where someone in the band implies that there will be a surprising addition to the setlist in November, but I can't find the exact interview right now. ūü§Ē I think it's about time they play Nymphomaniac Fantasia, we've been waiting all these years! ūüėĀ

Ok I'm updating the above post with some of the videos that are popping up now from Rio de Janeiro... One think I'm noticing is that there's a new stage background setup, with screens but no neon lights. It's different from what they had in Europe, but also in North America (no screens at all).

And tonight it's Sao Paulo, a sold out gig!

Another show announcement!

https://70000tons.com/home/

Don’t you ever dream of sailing through the pristine Caribbean Sea alongside 3,000 headbangers from around the world watching your favorite metal bands?

Finnish symphonic legends, NIGHTWISH, will grace the stage twice on board Round 11 of 70000 TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, once on our journey towards beautiful Bimini and once on the way back. This is only the first of 60 world class artists that will join us next year!

This journey we will embark on will be ‚ÄúI‚ÄĚndelible, forever etched in the history books of Heavy Metal!

Round 11 of 70000 TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will sail from Miami, Florida to Bimini, The Bahamas and back on board the Freedom of the Seas from January 30th to February 3rd, 2023!

----

This will be the second time Nightwish play at 70000 Tons Of Metal, the first time going back to January 2012 with Anette. Of course since they perform twice during one cruise, these will actually be their third and fourth shows at that festival.

Looks like you were right @Moondance! ūü§ė But it will be the penultimate show. Time to play "Kiteen Pallo"!

 

Nightwish announces home town show to Kitee next summer

Arto Mäenpää - 8.11.2022

https://chaoszine.net/nightwish-to-play-a-hometown-show-in-kitee-next-summer/

 

One of the most successful Finnish bands of all time, Nightwish, will perform in their hometown Kitee in June 2023. Human. :II: Nature. -world tour concert will happen on Friday, June 16, 2023 at renovated baseball stadium of Kitee. The concert is organized by Kiteen Pallo, the city of Kitee and the event production company Nordic Live Productions.

Nightwish has previously also announced another concert in Finland, which will take place on Saturday 17 June 2023 at Vaasa‚Äôs Lemonsoft Stadium. Kitee and Vaasa‚Äôs performances are Nightwish‚Äės last domestic concerts before the band takes a break to work on a new album. Nightwish‚Äės Kitee‚Äôs concert will be one of the biggest single events in eastern Finland during summer of 2023.

Tuomas Holopainen, founding member and leader of the Nightwish band, is excited about the upcoming concert in his hometown:

‚ÄúThe band let out a collective squeal of joy when we were told about the gig at Kiteen Rantakent√§. It will be the last performances of the Human. :II: Nature. world tour, and for me the absolute highlight of the whole round. My hometown, its people, and people from all over the world are guaranteed to create a magical setting for the event . We‚Äôll be waiting in our spots, see you there!‚ÄĚ

The group’s arrival in Kitee has been awaited for two decades

The best-known songs of Nightwish, who play symphonic metal and were founded in Kitee in 1996, are e.g. ‚ÄúNemo‚Äú, ‚ÄúSleeping Sun‚Äú, ‚ÄúStorytime‚Äú, ‚ÄúWish I Had An Angel‚Äú, ‚ÄúAmaranth‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúNoise‚Äú. In addition to the keyboardist and leader Tuomas Holopainen, singer Floor Jansen, multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, bassist Jukka Koskinen and drummer Kai Hahto will be seen on stage. Tommi M√§ki, CEO of Nordic Live Productions comments:

‚ÄúNightwish‚Äôs concert in Kitee, the band‚Äôs founding city, has been awaited for two decades. We are really excited that we will be able to produce a concert at the renovated Rantakent√§ next summer. We thank the band for their trust, and we promise to make the June 2023 concert a memorable and unique experience. In addition to Nightwish, the concert will feature a few other bands from the beginning of the evening, which will be announced later.‚ÄĚ

Nightwish is one of Kitee’s biggest pride

The story of the worldwide famous band Nightwish is recorded in the Kitee Tourist Information ‚Äď A Nightwish Story exhibition center, which opened in the center of Kitee in 2020. The exhibition presents the band‚Äôs journey from a small band project in Kitee to one of the biggest metal bands in the world. The exhibition, which has gained worldwide fame, features rare material that can only be seen and experienced in Kitee. Kitee City Manager Pekka Hirvonen comments:

‚ÄúA Nightwish Story exhibition center will be open around the clock between June 15 and 17, 2023. It‚Äôs absolutely amazing to have Nightwish, which has strong crystalline roots, perform at Rantakentt√§. The renovated stadium offers an excellent setting for the event, and we, as a city, warmly welcome the concert guests.‚ÄĚ

Baseball stadium’s visitor record is expected to be broken

The total capacity of Kiteen Rantakenttä baseball stadium is around 10,000 people for the concert. In addition to the 2,800-seat grandstand, which was renovated in 2020, almost the entire baseball field serves as an audience area. The concert is expected to be sold out, which would clearly break the stadium’s previous visitor record. The current audience record for Rantakkettä is 7,773 spectators in the 1996 East-West match. The local major baseball club Kiteen Pallo is strongly involved in the arrangements of the concert. Tommi Mäki adds:

‚ÄúWe expect Rantakentt√§‚Äôs capacity of more than 10,000 seats to be filled quickly after ticket sales start. At the same time, it would be the biggest event in the history of the baseball stadium. In the realization of the concert, we cooperate closely with Kitee city, Kiteen Pallo and other local clubs and organizations.‚ÄĚ

Kiteen Pallo also warmly welcomes Nightwish to Rantakenttä

Kiteen Pallo’s Mikko Varonen comments about the upcoming show:

‚ÄúNightwish is the brightest star in the music world of our region, and the event has a special meaning for Kiteen Pallo, as well as for all the club‚Äôs partners and fans. We believe that Rantakentt√§‚Äôs audience record will be broken with a bang. Years of cooperation with the band members have been seamless, and the upcoming event also shows respect for our cooperation. We are very proud to be from Kitee, and we welcome all Nightwish fans to Kitee for the whole event week.‚ÄĚ

Ticket sales for the concert will start on Friday, November 11

Ticket sales for Nightwish‚Äės Kitee concert will start on Friday, November 11, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. at the ticket office. There are age-restricted tickets and K18 tickets on sale for the concert. In addition, various VIP tickets are sold for the concert.

If the cruise wasn't so damn expensive, I would've gone on for it. I've heard so many wonderful experiences that metalheads have had on the cruise, so maybe one day... ūüôā

It was a lucky guess, but I am happy that they band are performing in the town where they had formed back in 1996. I'm very certain that with the news of them performing in Kitee, there is a possibility of special guests joining in for the show?

Now I can't choose where I'd rather be next year, on a cruise ship in the Caribbean watching not one but two Nightwish shows in a row, or in Finland to see them on home turf with all the pyros and visiting the NW exhibition and stuff. ūüė≤

It's probably a given Kitee will be a special show, either guests or a special setlist or fireworks, or all of the above! ūüėĀ They did mention other bands performing, don't know it will be local or international bands.

Tero Kinnunen (producer) posted the same on his Instagram, and the tag shows he was in Vantaa, Finland -- perhaps in the same warehouse where they recorded the virtual show? This could mean that the band met to rehearse for the European leg, perhaps shuffling the setlist a bit? ūüĎÄ

Also, many European shows are already sold out:

  • 20 Nov - Antwerp - SOLD OUT
