NIGHTWISH: First Spring 2008 North American Date Announced

The first date for NIGHTWISH's upcoming spring 2008 North American tour has been announced: May 22 at The Boardwalk in Orangevale, California. The band is also expected to perform at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 24. Additional dates will be announced in early November, including a very special show for Canadian fans.

Tickets for the Orangevale concert are now on sale though EnterTheVault.com.

As previously reported, NIGHTWISH's previously announced November 15, 2007 concert in Florida has been moved from House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista to Club Firestone in Orlando. Similarly, NIGHTWISH's November 6 concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California will now be taking place at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and EnterTheVault.com.

Fan-filmed video footage of NIGHTWISH's concert last Friday (September 28) at Delphi Showpalast in Hamburg, Germany can be viewed below. The band took the stage under the guise of a NIGHTWISH cover act from Japan called SUSHI PATROL and played a similar set to the one performed in Tallinn, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland earlier that week.

Video footage from the Helsinki concert can be found at this location.

NIGHTWISH will make its "official" live debut with new singer Anette Olzon on October 6 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The group's U.S. tour kicks off on October 15 in West Springfield, Virginia.
