I dont think so cuz i've heard that he is in jail!!!
A guy called Elias will play the guitar during this tour.
This is what I belive.

Position #1? Well, it says Sonata Arctica on the album, so I'm not very suprised. Though I really don't like Unia at all.

Your'e maybe right! I don't know what's really going on.

Icewings - 31.05.2007 at 19:14

Lioncourt - 31.05.2007 at 21:37  
@Hyvaarin: I read in a recent interview that they will come to Australia.

@Lord Hellbender: That is a rumor started buy a finnish tabloid.
APOHAKC - 31.05.2007 at 21:54  
Some chiks in Serbia will be dissapointed :/
Bas - 31.05.2007 at 23:53  
i'll most probably see them on the swiss date
a shame it's still so far away...

i havent heard the new album yet, but i didnt really like reckoning night either, so... i'm hoping they'll play mainly older and mainly fast songs
Eddie - 01.06.2007 at 11:41  
Hmm, if Jani wont play this tour I will hope that Elias Viljanen will fill the band up again. I'd love to see that guy live, he's really good.
ThunderAxe1989 - 01.06.2007 at 16:42  
Congrats to the band! I want to hear the album so badly! Here is Jani's statement: http://www.janiliimatainen.net/news/news-jani-statement.htm
