NIGHTWISH Warn Of Fake Facebook Profiles

Finnish symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH have issued the following warning:

"If you are a Facebook friend with Tuomas, Emppu, Jukka, Anette or Marco, you should know that all those "Tuomas Holopainen", "Emppu Vuorinen", "Jukka Nevalainen", "Anette Olzon" or "Marco Hietala" profiles are FAKE!

We are not talking about fan sites, they are OK, but there are lot of profiles made by person who is acting like he (or she) really is, for example, Tuomas. This is not acceptable. We suggest you to write something not-so-nice to their Facebook-wall if you already are a friend of those fake NW members and you thought that they really are from Nightwish.

If somebody from Nightwish band decides to start their own Facebook (or whatever...) profile, we will inform you about it. Just in case."

Earlier this month, Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen finished a raw demo of the band's follow-up to 2007's Dark Passion Play which featured new singer Anette Olzon. Between July and September the band will reconvene at a secret location in Finland to rehearse the material together and build a final demo which will be properly recorded over the fall/winter and early spring 2011. The as-yet-untitled new material could surface as early as September of 2011.

As previously reported, management has informed that the band is investigating the possibility of starting the next world tour in Los Angeles. Plans would call for a one-off North American exclusive at the 6,000 seat auditorium within the Universal Amphitheater. This venue would allow Nightwish to bring pyro and the full production to North America for the first time. A full continental tour would commence three-four months later, tentatively billed as late 2011, or early 2012.

Stay tuned for further updates.
