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)!

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.

As well as the release of their Tour Edition album, the recent news of vocalist, Floor Jenson’s health scare in testing positive for cancer, left fans around the world shocked. As of today, the singer has confirmed that she is now cancer free. Read her statement below:

“Great news! I am cancer free The surgery took everything cancerous out and it hasn’t spread! I’ll get local radiation therapy in February to make sure everything stays out.
I’m getting my energy back after the surgery and feel a huge relief to know it was successful!”

“I’m not back to a 100% but I have no doubt the shows will give me the power push I need to rock with all of you on the upcoming European tour.

Thank you for your amazing support and well wishes.”

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.”
