As 2014 begins, the Imaginaerum theme park has closed its doors and Nightwish will go on a well-deserved hiatus to write the new album. The Imaginaerum tour has been commemorated on the band's new DVD, Showtime, Storytime; featuring the two newest official members of Nightwish: Floor Jansen and Troy Donockley! That's right, Floor and Troy have gone from "special guest stars" to being recruited full-time to the the band. This DVD will be the first official release featuring the new lineup, and we can't wait to hear the new music with Nightwish as a 6-piece!
Although the tour is officially over, that doesn't mean an end to Nightwish's momentum! Whether it's Marco and Troy guesting on the upcoming Ayreon album, Floor touring for her latest album with ReVamp, Tuomas getting ready for his long-awaited Scrooge McDuck project, or Emppu's band Brother Firetribe releasing a new album; the members of Nightwish are keeping busy. And fans will still have plenty of Nightwish music to tide them over, with the release of the live DVD Showtime, Storytime!
We all know that Nightwish are beloved in their home country of FInland, but now there is also a museum in their hometown of Kitee to commemorate their storied past; where you can see all sorts of items pertaining to Nightwish history! The museum was created by none other than Tuomas' mother, and is now open to the public. So if you have ever considered making a pilgrimage to Finland, now is as good a time as any!
