Over the past two years, symphonic metal luminaries  NIGHTWISH have also been affected by countless cancellations preventing them from touring their new album. Until now…

They’ve not yet been able to present their highly successful album Human. :II: Nature’ live, globally.

Now, this is about to change with the launch of their lengthy European tour, taking place this November and December, featuring an exclusive Irish date in Dublin’s 3Arena on November 23rd.

As a special, limited release set to coincide with the tour’s start, on November 18th, NIGHTWISH will present the Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition) as a luxurious 2CD plus Blu-Ray Digipak.

It will include their recent album, alongside the virtual live show from The Islanders Arms 2021 on Blu-Ray – region code free for the first time. Originally previously available just as a DVD release, and on Blu-Ray just in Japan, this new edition is the ultimate version to re-experience the unique and magical show NIGHTWISH created after their world tour had to be canceled.

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

Half a year in preparation, premiering on May 28th and May 29th, 2021, ‘An Evening with Nighwish’ in a Virtual World was not just a regular digital show. 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.

Songs from Human. :II: Nature. were debuted live to a massive audience of more than 150,000 fans across 108 countries!

Around 30 people from seven different countries, many of them long-time fans, put everything they had into crafting a high-quality virtual concert featuring a NIGHTWISH-themed tavern, elaborate animations, and 3D models, that provided an atmospheric and inimitable stage for the band’s stellar, career-spanning set, brilliantly mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox.

So, while NIGHTWISH fans can look forward to seeing Floor, Tumas, Emppu, Tryo, Jukka, and Kai in the flesh over the coming months, the Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition) invites you to revisit a one-of-a-kind unique event in the band’s history.
