Speaking to YeboTV from New York's Nokia Theatre at Times Square last night, NIGHTWISH's bassist/vocalist Marco Hietala had this to say about the Vintage Vinyl event: "We will be doing a 30-minute full electric set of songs from the new album. We are very much looking forward to the performance and meeting our fans. I really did not have any idea just how big this event has turned out to be until now. I had better not tell the rest of the band the whole world will be watching or they may get nervous (haha)."

NIGHTWISH is currently in the midst of a headlining U.S. tour. Fan response to new lead vocalist Anette Olzon has been positive. Hietala adds, "Tuomas (Holopainen) is feeling a bit under the weather right now but he is getting checked out and we hope to have him back to full health soon. The tour has been going very well so far."
