Nightwish

Order the Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition) here: https://nightwish.bfan.link/human-nature-tour-edition


Ahead of NIGHTWISH's glorious return to our European stages, kicking off this Sunday in Belgium, the Finnish Symphonic metal stars are proud to release their Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition) today! Including a Blu-ray Digipack of the band's live stream event, An Evening With Nightwish In A Virtual World, the release is a testimonial to a formative time in our history, which pushed artists to their limits and demanded creative solutions for the live business.

An Evening With Nightwish In A Virtual World was a creative solution - a one-of-a-kind event, unique in the band’s history. It was an exceptionally ambitious production, allowing fans to follow the band playing live in an astonishing 3D world, designed according to the band’s vision. 

“This is definitely one of the coolest things NIGHTWISH has ever done”, NIGHTWISH commented. “Entwining visual elements, technology and music in such an extraordinary way offers a unique experience to us all.”

Besides today's release of the Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition), NIGHTWISH have also released a stunning video for 'Last Ride Of The Day' taken from the An Evening with Nightwish in a Virtual World show:
