TARJA TURUNEN Doesn’t Completely ‘Close The Door’ On Reunion Tour With NIGHTWISH

Former Nightwish vocalist Tarja Turunen was recently asked if she would ever consider doing a reunion tour with the band.

Former NIGHTWISH vocalist Tarja Turunen was recently asked if she would ever consider doing a reunion tour with the iconic symphonic metal band if her and her bandmates ever worked things out between them.

Speaking with Top Link Music manager and concert promoter Paulo Baron and music critic Regis Tadeu, Tarja responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It is very, very hypothetical that all what you said will happen, first of all — it’s very, very hypothetical.

“I’m living in a world, like we are all living in a world, that things happen without us noticing,” she continued. “I mean, I can’t really close any doors in that sense; I’m not that kind of person any longer. I learned so many things in this life already. I take them as they are.

“So I don’t know. It would be very hypothetically possible,” she added. “It would be unlikely to happen.”

Tarja was terminated from NIGHTWISH at the end of their 2005 tour by being presented with an open letter, published on the NIGHTWISH web site, which read: “To you, unfortunately, business, money, and things that have nothing to do with emotions have become much more important.”

NIGHTWISH keyboardist and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen later called the decision to part ways with Turunen “the most difficult thing I ever had to do.”

Tarja would go on to say that the way she was kicked out of the group goes to show that her former bandmates were not her friends. “Maybe one day I’ll forgive, but I will never forget,” she said.
