Nightwish: Finns Come to North America

Published: 2004-02-15
The Kitee, Finland rock sensations Nightwish are coming to North America for a tour in August. Nightwish is bringing the atmospheric hard rock band from Helsinki Lullacry with them.

Nightwish came into being in 1996 as some friends sat around a campfire. Appropriately it was around midnight when the idea came about. After a slow start because two of the band members were in the Army, Nightwish exploded onto the European rock scene. To date the band has four gold singles, two gold albums, and one platinum album to their credit. When Nightwish performs in Montreal it will mark a return to the French Canadian city for the band. By the time the band reaches North America they will have released a new album.

The female fronted band Lullacry has been described as an atmospheric heavy rock band. They have also been called gothic. Female singer Tanja is ready to take on today's pop tarts and the world by storm. To date Lullacry has released three albums.

August 16 Toronto
August 17 Montreal
