NIGHTWISH - virtual world rescheduled!

De interactieve ”An Evening with Nightwish In a Virtual World” concertervaring die de ”Human. :II: Nature.” World Tour moet aanvangen, is uitgesteld van maart naar mei door veranderingen in het tourschema van de band.

Je leest het goed, zelfs virtuele livestreams worden uitgesteld... Nightwish hun livestream die in maart zou plaatsvinden wordt uitgesteld naar mei. De reden die ze daarvoor geven is "veranderingen in het tourschema". We fronsen toch even onze wenkbrauwen bij zo'n reden, want er wordt in de verste verte door geen enkele band getoerd en zelfs 2021 optredens worden uitgesteld naar het najaar of zelfs 2022. Aangekochte tickets blijven geldig, maar er kan ook geupgrade worden naar een VIP-ticket. Hierin zit inbegrepen een online sessie met de basgitarist. Ook hier fronsen we een tweede keer de wenkbrauwen, want het is helemaal nog niet bekend wie deze persoon is. Zoals je al kon lezen, is Marko Hietala immers opgestapt en is het nog een vraagteken wie hem als sessiemuzikant op tournee zal vervangen. Het lijkt dus iets heel goedkoop te zijn om een VIP sessie op te zetten met een nog onbekend iemand die feitelijk niks met de band te maken heeft, in plaats van een jarenlang bandlid.

Het persbericht is als volgt:

The new dates are Friday, May 28 and Saturday, May 29, 2021. Tickets purchased for the original dates are automatically valid for the new dates, or can be returned by March 12, 2021.
