Released on March 13 via Nuclear Blast Records, "Made In Hong Kong (And In Various Other Places)" contains a DVD documentary (with a running time of approximately 45 minutes) of NIGHTWISH's world tour in support of the band's latest album, "Dark Passion Play", as well as a CD featuring live recordings from the trek. The documentary footage was reportedly directed by Ville Lipiäinen.

"Dark Passion Play", the latest studio album from NIGHTWISH, has been certified platinum in Switzerland for sales in excess of 30,000 copies. Meanwhile, the band's "End Of An Era" DVD has achieved gold status in the country by shifting more than 3,000 units. The NIGHTWISH bandmembers were presented with the awards prior to their March 28, 2009 concert at St. Jakobshalle in Basel.

The "End Of An Era" DVD, which was released in 2006, contains footage of the band's final performance with former singer Tarja Turunen, recorded in October 2005 in Helsinki, Finland.
