Re: Nightwish make it official: Floor Jansen is staying

Drummer Jukka Nevalianen made his first comments in years to a Finnish paper. He said he no longer suffers from chronic insomnia, which is what led to his departure in the first place, and said he still handles all the Nightwish business.

I got the vague impression from his comments that he might simply not wish to return as drummer but stay as the biz guy. He has 3 small kids, after all. 18 month tours might not sit well with him. The band is taking 2017 off, so we'll see if he returns or not. I hope he does, I liked his playing.

Re: Nightwish make it official: Floor Jansen is staying

With the new Blu-ray about to hit stores - I think they're featuring the Mexico City performance and Ghost Love Score from this set is #2 on my favorite versions with Floor - the first being from the Argentina show when she was still not an official member. Phenomenal.

In any event, I really like the "Floorgasm" at the end of the song. I've seen Tarja's version and she just walks off, which I don't like. That little "oomph" at the end by Floor gives me chills.




@ the 44min - 45min is when it starts.

The Vehicle of Spirit Blu-ray (mentioned above) released in the US this week. Just finished watching the concert on the 2nd disc (The Tampere Show). Too many close-up camera shots, but the music sounds great. The first disc has a Wembley show with a few different tunes from the Tampere one. And there are a 10 extra live songs from various shows on the 2nd disc. I like it.

Yeah, I've had this disc for 2 weeks now - it was released in Europe first (imported it from Amazon.de). I prefer the Wembley show over the Tampere one.

The LPCM tracks sound phenomenal but the DD 5.1 sounds really low.

There will be a 9-month tour next year. No L.A. show, so looks like I will be seeing them at The Grove in Anaheim.

In March 2018, symphonic metal legends NIGHTWISH will begin their nine-month-long "Decades: World Tour 2018" starting with 34 shows in North America.

The band will have a very special setlist for the tour, featuring rarely heard material from the earlier era, and excitingly for both band and fans, they will revisit the old songs with some new twists.

This setlist will be a "one-off" and only performed on this "Decades: World Tour 2018".
