Another one down. This is the Century Child tour, considered by many to be the finest of the Tarja period. Sadly there's only a partial official release from this period, a few songs recorded during the Oslo concert and released on the "End of Innocence" DVD. On the other hand there are a number of quality pro recordings from complete or almost complete shows available online, such as Summer Breeze Open Air, Amsterdam, Rauma andย Gates Of Metal. Oh and the Montreal show recording is crazy good considering it's filmed from the crowd, sound and image are both excellent. Enjoy! Next up is Tarja's last tour with Nightwish.

According to the Lutakko web page, the June 23 2002 gig in Lutakko actually took place on June 20, therefore before the Himos Festival. Since it was a warm-up show, it makes sense for it to be the first of the tour, but can anyone confirm the date?

Edit: The June 23 date appears to have been mentioned here as well: https://www.palasokeri.com/forum/1944/all/#1949
