Nightwish is a symphonic power metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen.
The band soon picked up drummer Jukka Nevalainen, and then bassist Sami Vänskä after the release of its debut album, “Angels Fall First” (1997).
Although Nightwish have been prominent in their home country since “Angels Fall First”, they did not achieve worldwide fame until the release of the albums “Oceanborn” (1998), “Wishmaster” (2000), and “Century Child” (2002). Their 2004 album, “Once”, has sold more than one million copies and was the band’s breakthrough in the US.
Their biggest US hit single, “Wish I Had An Angel” (2004), received MTV airplay and was included on 3 US film soundtracks to promote their North American tour.
The band produced 3 more singles and 2 music videos for “Once”, as well as a re-recording of “Sleeping Sun” for the “best of” compilation album, “Highest Hopes” (2005).
To date, Nightwish has released 8 full-length studio albums with “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” being the latest released in early 2015. Nightwish is the most successful Finnish band worldwide, selling more than 8 million records and receiving more than 60 gold and platinum awards, having released 5 #1 albums and 13 #1 singles.
This will be Nightwish debut headlining show in Singapore and it will be the ONLY show in Southeast Asia after their Australia leg.
