Nightwish are a Finnish symphonic metal outfit hailing from Kitee. Formed in 1996, the band currently consists of Tuomas Holopainen, Emppu Vuorinen, Jukka Nevalainen, Marco Hietala, Troy Donockley, Floor Jansen, and Kai Hahto.
Their unique brand of gothic yet melodic metal has helped the group become Finland's most successful band abroad (and the third most in the country itself!), having sold over eight million records worldwide and acquiring over 60 gold and platinum certifications on the way.
Nightwish have released seven studio records to date – the latest being their 2011 concept album 'Imaginaerum' – and with each release, they solidify their place in metal history, as well as Finnish history too.
Nightwish made a return with new LP, 'Endless Forms Most Beautiful', in March 2015, supported by touring across the world, including a gig at the SSE Arena Wembley in winter, their only UK performance of the year.
Nightwish returned with a best of compilation in 2018, titled 'Decades', and will play UK arena shows in December. Check below to find the full dates and tickets!
