Ahead of NIGHTWISH‘s glorious return to our European stages, kicking off this Sunday in Antwerpen, Belgium, the Finnish Symphonic metal superstars are proud to release the Human. :II: Nature. (Tour Edition) today!
Including a Blu-ray Digipack of the band’s live stream event, An Evening With Nightwish In A Virtual World, the release is a testimonial to a formative time in our history, which pushed artists to their limits and demanded creative solutions for the live business.
An Evening With Nightwish In A Virtual World was such a creative solution – a one-of-a-kind event unique in the band’s history. 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.
“This is definitely one of the coolest things NIGHTWISH has ever done”, the band commented. “Entwining visual elements, technology, and music in such an extraordinary way offers a unique experience to us all.”
