Nightwish’s tour to promote the album “Human. :II: Nature.”, could not take place as planned due to the pandemic, but we already know when we will make up for it – the Finnish group will perform in Gliwice next December.
We would like to thank you for your patience and appreciate you keeping your concert tickets! With great pleasure, as well as hope for its success, we announce a new date for Nightwish’s concert in Poland.
The performance of the Finnish legend of symphonic metal will take place on December 14, 2022 at Arena Gliwice. Special guest will be the band Beast In Black, currently promoting the album “Dark Connection” (2021, Nuclear Blast Records), and Turmion Kätilöt will play as support.
The concert is organized by Mystic Coalition, an alliance of companies with extensive experience in the concert, festival and publishing market, which includes Knock Out Productions, Mystic Production and B90.
The Finnish band, led by keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, has been blazing its own trail in the metal world since the second half of the 1990s. Its trademarks are infectious melodies, bombastic arrangements and a female voice that combines sweetness and strength – a task currently filled by Floor Jansen, who made her debut as Nightwish’s vocalist on the album “Endless Forms Most Beautiful.” There is probably no metal band that has been more spectacularly successful in the 21st century.
Last spring saw the release of the long-awaited double album “Human. :II: Nature.” , containing 17 premiere compositions. The themes of the songs include humanity’s relationship with nature, technology and art. The material is difficult to assign to one genre – it is full of unexpected twists and turns, from rock to metal, to folk to neoclassical, but it is always 100% Nightwish.
BEAST IN BLACK (Finlandia)
In the special year of 2020, Finnish fans of classic heavy and power metal, the Beast In Black group, turned five years of existence. Founded by guitarist and vocalist Anton Kabanen, who formerly played in Battle Beast, the group managed to tour a good chunk of the world during the five-year period, released two studio albums, and gained a sizable fan base thanks to live performances that were as outstanding as the albums.
Anton Kabanen – guitar and keyboards, Máté Molnár – bass guitar, Kasperi Heikkinen – guitar (ex-U.D.O.), Yannis Papadopoulos – vocals and drummer Atte Palokangas were quickly signed to the renowned Nuclear Blast label. Their debut album “Berserker” (2017) went gold, proving that strong, melodic music in which influences of Accept, Judas Priest, Blind Guardian or Manowar clash will always be in demand.
TURMION KÄTILÖT (Finlandia)
Their name is Midwives of Condemnation, and their music is just as crazy. In it, a powerful death metal sound coexists with cold industrial mechanics and danceable rhythms, but there’s also enough room for rousing, anthemic choruses shouted by two possessed vocalists. Some say Turmion Kätilöt is party metal – yes, but with the assumption that it’s a BDSM party in a nuclear fallout shelter arranged for those who survived the nuclear holocaust and are all the same.
