WITHIN TEMPTATION: Italian Concert Footage, Photos Posted Online

Italian website DelRock.it published a new photo gallery of WITHIN TEMPTATION's January 11, 2008 concert near Milan, Italy. Check out the pictures at this location.

Fan-filmed video footage from the show can be viewed below.

WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt is forced to sit out the band's current tour due to a recent "unfortunate accident" in which he severely bruised his right thumb, making it impossible for him to play guitar.

WITHIN TEMPTATION's November 24, 2007 concert at the Beursgebouw in Eindhoven, Holland was filmed for an upcoming DVD, tentatively due next summer. The sold-out show at the 8,000-capacity venue included lots of special effects, an acoustic section, Broadway-style musical elements and guest appearances by Anneke van Giersbergen (AQUA DE ANNIQUE, ex-THE GATHERING) and George Oosthoek (ex-ORPHANAGE).

An acoustic version of "What Have You Done", taken from the "special edition" version of WITHIN TEMPTATION's new album, "The Heart of Everything", is available for streaming at this location.

WITHIN TEMPTATION was honored in the "Best-Selling Artist - Netherlands" category at the World Music Awards on November 4 in Monte Carlo.

The World Music Awards (founded in 1989) is an international awards show that annually honors recording artists based on their worldwide sales figures, which are provided by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).

As previously reported, WITHIN TEMPTATION will be joined by the Dutch Metropole Orchestra for a special concert at the Ahoy Stadium in Rotterdam, the Netherlands on February 7.

WITHIN TEMPTATION's latest album, "The Heart of Everything", sold 7,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 106 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's first U.S. release for Roadrunner Records, "The Heart of Everything" also topped the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
