Finland's NIGHTWISH have posted the following statement on their web site:"Since NIGHTWISH is having a break from touring at the moment we do not have any chance to participate in any of the Asia-charity concerts organized in January. This is something we really would have wanted to take part in. So now we did the only thing we could: a direct donation in the name of the band [in the amount of 10,000 euros; approximately $13,000]. [We] wish we could do more. "All those going through the tragedy, you are in our thoughts. " (Thanks: Novocain / Planet Nightwish)
