Nightwish made a triumphant return to North America in September 2012, wrapping up the month-long U.S./Canadian leg tour in Lake Buena Vista, Florida on October 14th, and then returning to the remainder of North America when touring Mexico at the end of November, kicking off December in Puerto Rico, and playing the final show in North America in Costa Rica on December 3rd. Word has it that during their stint in Latin America, performances will be filmed for a DVD slated for release in September of next year!
To welcome the band back to North America, OSA held a contest to design our Imaginaerum tour OSA t-shirts; our first contest in 7 years! The polls have closed, the votes have been cast, and the Oceansouls have spoken! Congratulations to our contest winner, Adrian "Angel of Grief" from Poland, for his "Jack-in-the-Box by Moonlight" design! His creative design will be featured on our upcoming 2012 tour OSA shirts, which are now onsale in our brand-new OSA Shop! Our user-friendly online store allows you to make purchases using PayPal.
The contest was a big success, and we'd like to thank everyone who participated; as well as our contributors to our wonderful prize package. A huge thanks to our friends at Roadrunner Records, Sonic Cathedral, and Bazillion Points!
The contest was such a success that it even garnered attention across the pond when our contest winner was interviewed for a Polish newspaper! Click on the link to see the scan where OSA is featured in print!
Even the band themselves have given us a thumbs-up! Take a look at the video below to see just how much they appreciated their gifts of OSA t-shirts at their recent show in Anaheim.
Now that the contest has ended, we have archived everything to our brand-new Flickr page! You can take a look at all the contestants' lovely designs, as well as see the screenshots of the final polls that declared the winner.
