NIGHTWISH SET TO CAPTURE UPCOMING WACKEN OPEN AIR SHOW FOR LIVE DVD RELEASE 1st August 2013
Nightwish have reached triple platinum status for their latest studio masterpiece 'Imaginaerum' in Finland and gold status in numerous European countries (Germany, Switzerland, Poland, amongst others). The band also released their highly successful fantasy motion picture, 'Imaginaerum by Nightwish' and have toured all around the globe in support of both these releases.
The legendary Finnish symphonic Metallers are now approaching the end of their album cycle, and the last three live shows in support of 'Imaginaerum' are closing in...
So to celebrate the grand-finale, Nightwish are recording the entire show of Germany's upcoming Wacken Open Air – the world's biggest Heavy Metal festival – for a live DVD/Blu-ray.

Mastermind and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen states: "The time has come soon to wrap up the magical and memorable one-and-a-half year 'Imaginaerum World Tour' 2012-2013! We still have three shows left, one of them being at the legendary Wacken Open Air Metal Festival on the 3rd of August.
"This show will be something extra special, since it will be released later this year on DvD/Blu-ray, together with a massive 'Imaginaerum World Tour' 2012-2013 documentary.
"Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen, has been nothing but incredible during her time in Nightwish on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film!"
