20.11.2008 | Source: viihde.mtv3.fi
Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) just finished her European tour and yesterday she performed in a church in Kuusankoski, Finland. She will also perform in two different churches next week where she sings Christmas songs. Her previous concert held in Kuusankoski was a very good experience.
"The atmosphere was amazing and it was lovely to see people leaving the church with a smile on their faces", Tarja told to finnish Viihdeuutiset.
According to Tarja, she has a very talented group of people playing with her on these church concerts.
"I am performing with Kalevi Kiviniemi, Marzi Nyman and Markku Krohn. I love performing with them cause I know the talent they all have. We have a very nice line-up on these church concerts".
Tarja has been very busy and she hasn't been able rest much. This is also the reason why she hasn't payed much attention to Nightwish's sad incident during their tour in Brazil when their current vocalist Anette Olzon left the stage in the middle of the show. Tuomas Holopainen had commented the incident saying that Anette simply lost it cause audience was showing her their middlefinger and screaming Tarja's name.
"It is impossible for me to comment this any further since I wasn't there. I simply don't know what happened for real.", Tarja said.
How can a performer brace herself to situations like these?
"Difficult to say. Every situation is different and there is no one way to brace every situation."
People still yell your name on Nightwish shows and it seems old fans have followed you. How does this make you feel?
"First of all I never accept any aggressive behaviour towards anyone. Of course it warms my heart that there are old fans who have followed me. I have gained lots of new audience also through these church concerts. Although there were some young girls all dressed in black in the Kuusankoski church too. It felt great also!"
