NIGHTWISH's HIETALA Forgets Song Lyrics At Finland's SAUNA OPEN AIR

NIGHTWISH bassist/vocalist forgot the lyrics to the song "The Islander" during the band's concert at the Sauna Open Air festival on June 7, 2009 in Tampere, Finland and was forced to start the track all over again, with the rest of the group accompanying him. Watch fan-filmed video footage of the performance below.

NIGHTWISH's video for "The Islander" was honored with a "Best Music Video" award at the Muuvi awards ceremony, which was held on April 17, 2009 in Helsinki.

"The Islander" clip was shot and directed by Tuomas "Stobe" Harju at the end of 2007 in Rovaniemi, Finland near the Arctic Circle.

Muuvi awards are handed out annually to the best Finnish music videos.

"Made In Hong Kong (And In Various Other Places)", the new CD/DVD from NIGHTWISH, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 15. It also opened at No. 2 in Finland and dropped down to No. 5 in its second week of release.

Released on March 13 via Nuclear Blast Records, "Made In Hong Kong (And In Various Other Places)" contains a DVD documentary (with a running time of approximately 45 minutes) of NIGHTWISH's world tour in support of the band's latest album, "Dark Passion Play", as well as a CD featuring live recordings from the trek. The documentary footage was reportedly directed by Ville Lipiäinen.
