Former NIGHTWISH Singer ANETTE OLZON Closes Her Official Blog

Former NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon has "closed" her official blog, just hours after it was announced that she was parting ways with the group.

In her final message to the fans, she wrote, "Dear blog readers: With this I say farewell to you and this blog. This blog was a way for me, as the singer in NIGHTWISH, to keep more in touch with you, NIGHTWISH fans. Now when this chapter has ended, there is no more need for me to do this blog and from today I close it.

"I want to thank you all for being my readers for so many years, for your loving support and I wish you all a happy and healthy life! Stay kind to others and live life easy!

"Lots of love, Anette Olzon (from now on just Anette Olsson;=)"

As reported earlier today, NIGHTWISH will be joined on the road by Dutch singer Floor Jansen (AFTER FOREVER, REVAMP). The band stated about the decision, "In recent times it has become increasingly obvious that the direction and the needs of the band were in conflict, and this has led to a division from which we cannot recover."

They added, "We are all strongly committed to this journey, this vehicle of spirit, and we are sure that this will lead to a brighter future for everyone.

"We forever remain excited about the adventures to come, and we are extremely proud of the two beautiful albums and the wonderful shows we shared together."

Olzon joined NIGHTWISH in 2007 as the replacement for Tarja Turunen after the latter was fired in 2005.
