This was my first Nightwish concert, and considering the repeated “you’re in for a treat” mantra I had been hearing from others who had seen their shows previously, my expectations were very high. Nightwish did not disappoint. They were everything I had expected and more. Floor with her amazing vocals, along with the class A musical talent of the others in the band, provided an atmospheric experience that was otherworldly. Additionally, The Lyric was a prime venue to showcase this incredible band. The sound quality was amazing, and the way in which the seating is arranged, I don’t think it would be likely to have a bad seat. I was so impressed with the performance of this band, I was actually considering taking a road trip to see one of their Pennsylvania shows. However, I did snap back into reality to realize that would not be feasible with my everyday schedule. I cannot wait until the next time Nightwish comes to the area for another amazing musical experience.

The current line up is EPIC! Tuomas never disappoints- his compositions and keyboards were second to none.. Marco delivered excellent male vocals and thumping bass. KaI on drums was precise and tight. The addition of Troy and his flutes and pipes was a no brainer- he makes the band better....Emmpu was crisp on the guitar and was engaging with the audience for the entire show.. Much has been said about the 3 vocalists Nightwish has employed over the last 20 years- The current, in my opinion far exceeds the others. Floor Jansen knows how to put on a show. She can sing it all- From incredible highs to remarkable lows, she does not disappoint. I have never seen anyone with better stage presence! The combination of all the above made for a very memorable evening.. This band should be better known in this country. The music is crisp, tight, detailed and surreal. We did the VIP and met the band members, an experience to never forget.

A VIKING AND VALKYRIE MAKE A MAGICAL NIGHT
Stage AE was a perfect venue that provided a personal, upclose intimate show. The acoustics were great. I can't sing enough praise about the night. Marco was a rock god,that could only be rivaled by the unparalleled stage presence of of Floor. Thank you for a wonderful night.

This bands repertoir is legendary. The current lineup has a lot of character (a la John, George and Ringo), and all that personality shines through. The 3 front performers engage with the croud as if you’re the only one there, but the Queen and monarch in this beautiful spectacle is vocalist Floor Jansen. It may a be a sin that this band is not as huge in USA as they are in Europe, but for us American fans, we have the good fortune of seeing their amazing show in small intimate venues. The last 2 epic songs, “The Greatest Show on Earth” and “Ghost Love Score,” alone would make this one of the most climactic concerts I’ve ever seen. I walked away with the profound and comforting idea ringing in my head. “We were here.”
