VIDEO: NIGHTWISH Play ‘Secret’ Show In Finland

Nightwish play surprise warm up gig.

NIGHTWISH played a special “secret” concert last night (Wednesday, July 28) in Oulu, Finland. The band played at a venue called Club Teatria disguised as a NIGHTWISH cover band called NEVSKI & THE PROSPECTS, however speculation about the group actually performing was strong enough to cause a sell out.

NIGHTWISH played the Oulu show as a warm-up for their festival appearances in Finland this week: July 30 at Qstock and July 31 at Kuopiorock.

The Oulu gig marked NIGHTWISH’s first fan-attended show in more than two a half years. It was also NIGHTWISH’s first live concert with session bassist Jukka Koskinen, who stepped into the group as the replacement for longtime NIGHTWISH bassist/vocalist Marko “Marco” Hietala.

NIGHTWISH’s latest album, “Human. :II: Nature.”, was released in April 2020. The follow-up to 2015’s “Endless Forms Most Beautiful”, “Human. :II: Nature.” is a double album containing nine tracks on the main CD and one long track, divided into eight chapters, on CD 2.
