Autumn 2007: after almost a two-year hiatus, the new singer of Nightwish has been chosen, the new album is ready, and a new world tour looms ahead. The pressure is immense, but Anette Olzon fulfills the expectations as the new front woman, charming the sold-out arenas around the world, and lifting the band to a class completely of its own in the history of Finnish Hard Rock.
Nightwish: Dark Passion Gallery is a photojournal by the renowned Rock photographer Ville Akseli Juurikkala (HIM, Apocalyptica, The 69 Eyes); a story of the first world tour by Finland's biggest rock band with their new singer, told in breathtaking pictures.
Juurikkala followed the band for almost a year, ever since the first gig until last summer. While the focus is on Europe, there's also plenty of scenes from around the world, from Asia to the Americas. The emphasis is naturally on the band members and their lives, both on-stage and backstage, but the reader also gets to follow the long days of the 50-strong crew.
While on tour, Juurikkala shared his life with the band members, traveling on the same bus, sleeping in the same hotels (sometimes in the same room), and hanging out in the same backstage rooms. He witnessed the daily life of the band at close range, and now you have the chance to experience it, too, through the glorious pictures in this beautiful book.
