NIGHTWISH: London Footage Posted Online

Finnish/Swedish symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH are currently on tour in the UK, leaving behind a trail of sold-out shows, including Thursday night's packed crowd at London's Astoria. Click below for some YouTube footage for a quick glimpse of NIGHTWISH's UK tour before they bring their unique brand of symphonic metal to U.S. shores again in May. In some of the footage they are joined by a musician named Troy who contributed to the band's latest CD, "Dark Passion Play", playing bagpipes. According to the band's manager Ewo, Troy is a "fantastic magician as well!"

Some songs from NIGHTWISH's concert in Frankfurt, Germany will be broadcast on Germany's biggest rock and metal radio show, "HR3 Hard 'n' Heavy - Die Lange Harte Nacht", on Friday, April 4 at 11:30 p.m. CET. International listeners can listen to the program via the Internet at this location.

NIGHTWISH will announce its upcoming U.S. fall tour dates on April 8.

Keeping in line with the tradition of the band's first two U.S. tours in support of its latest CD, "Dark Passion Play", the group is putting two dates on sale early — September 17 at La Zona Rosa in Austin, Texas and the previously announced September 24 at the Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both of these dates are on sale now exclusively through, with special VIP meet-and-greet tickets available for Austin only
