TARJA TURUNEN Checks In From Mexico

Former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen has issued the following update:

"We have been rehearsing with the band in Monterrey, Mexico for couple of days. Everything went perfect with the help of the local promoter and some friends. And we are ready to rock tonight! It was really nice to meet the people of the band again and to see how well Kiko [Loureiro, guitar] has understood my music and the spirit of it. I am truly happy to have him on board and it seems that the rest of the people are happy too. This is the beginning of one of my dreams getting real. I have been waiting my Latin American tour for several years and it feels really fantastic to be able to perform like this on my own. I am a very lucky girl… The sun is shining in Monterrey and I am sure that tonight will be a very 'hot' show."
