TARJA TURUNEN And MIKE TERRANA Talk 'Beauty And The Beat' Tour In New Video Interview

Infomusic.ro conducted an interview with former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen and acclaimed drummer Mike Terrana (TARJA, AXEL RUDI PELL, RAGE, YNGWIE J. MALMSTEEN, MASTERPLAN) prior to the April 11 Bucharest, Romania concert on their "Beauty And The Beat" tour. You can now watch the chat below.

The first "Beauty And The Beat" concert took place in September 2011 at the Roman Amphitheatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The setlist consisted of songs from Tarja's solo career, NIGHTWISH covers and classical pieces. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.

Tarja stated about the Plovdiv concert: "When I walked to the stage, the audience was so loud that I got pretty confused with my thoughts and emotions, so I burst into tears even before singing a note! It was wonderful. The whole concert was wonderful. I was very, very happy.

"The whole idea of performing together with the orchestra, choir and Mike is very unique and I knew that this concept would work live, as it did. We hope that we can do this more often and it could happen wherever!

"I needed to hug Mr. Terrana a loooooong time before and after the concert. Actually, Mike enjoyed the concert so much that he told me afterwards this: 'Dear Tarja, if I should die tomorrow, I would die happily.' It was the best concert he said he had done in his career so far. I was VERY happy to be a part of that."
