Nightwish - Releasing New Live DVD


Showtime, Storytime was Nightwish's last DVD released three years ago after vocalist Floor Jansen joined the band. Now, after touring for a year and a half throughout almost every corner of the world, the time has come for Nightwish to immortalize their Endless Forms Most Beautiful tour on DVD. The symphonic metal visionaries are set to release their new live milestone Vehicle Of Spirit on November 4th, featuring not only two full concerts, but also plenty of bonus material.

"The title Vehicle Of Spirit came from a friend of Troy's, who after seeing our show a few years ago defined Nightwish as 'A vehicle of spirit that defies category'. That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title," states keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen.




Sold out arenas and spectacular shows with pyro effects, wind machines, video screens and Nightwish's melodies are the elements that made their latest tour so unique. Special highlights for the band have been two particular shows: The one in London, where they not only played their hymns such as 'Élan' and 'The Greatest Show On Earth' to more than 12.000 fans, but also welcomed the world famous scientist Richard Dawkins live on stage with them. Richard Dawkins' works had a massive impact on the thematical orientation of their latest studio album Endless Forms Most Beautiful. Finland's Tampere show was a home run for the band and never before Nightwish had such an immense stage production with them.

Tuomas added: "I would say the main part of the DVD are those two shows, both Wembley and Tampere. Wembley is mentioned first due to its recognizably and legendary status. I remember the show being very special, both a goal achieved, and a starting point. The crowd was heartwarming. The presence of Richard Dawkins on stage was just mind-blowing. The overall experience was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill ride! The show in Ratina Stadion, Tampere, was a home crowd specialty (for 4/6th of the band) with the biggest stage production we've ever had. A lovely atmosphere throughout the concert, with many same faces in the front row as there were 15 years ago. Heartfelt."

When it comes to the artwork of the DVD, Nightwish decided to walk different paths this time and come up with a little alternative idea, as Tuomas explains: "We didn't want to include a traditional band shot for the cover, as on the previous DVD release Showtime, Storytime. So we started brainstorming on different options and the idea of a classic silent movie era Hollywood visuals quickly came up. With those classic slogans the cover has a little tongue-in-cheek-touch to it, but it's still classy and eye catching in its simplicity and originality."

Sounds like a cash grabber but it's worth it for a good recording of "The Poet And The Pendulum" with Floor.
