Nightwish announce new UK tour dates, after once again being forced to reschedule their UK and European tour due to the pandemic.
The Finnish symphonic metallers were originally due to hit the road in November and December 2020, before rescheduling the Human :II: Nature run for May 2021 due to COVID. Unfortunately, though, as the pandemic continues, the band have pushed the dates back again – now to the end of the year.
Announcing the first postponement, Tuomas Holopainen called the situation “a most unfortunate but necessary move in order ensure everyone’s safety and make the best out of this bizarreness that all of you and us are going through”.
This time around the band will be without bassist/co-vocalist Marko Hietala, who left Nighwish earlier this month citing a combination of disillusion with the music industry and chronic depression.
Nightwish will be joined by Amorphis and Turmion Kätilöt.
