Oceansouls Of America, a US-based fan-site for Nightwish, has posted the following teaser, neither confirming, nor denying the validity of California Nightwish date in January. While the Finnish act will be in Los Angeles to kick off their world tour with a date at the Gibson Ampitheater, in Universal City (part of the Dinsey complex) on January 21st, the concert in question is shrouded in mystery. Apparently, on October 24th, the Finnish language newspaper Karjalainen quoted the band's management, offering details of a "secret Nightwish gig scheduled somewhere in California in mid-January."
They also hinted to look for a band named RUBBER BAND OF WOLVES playing in the Los Angeles area at the same time. The flyer on the Key Club's website utilizes a dark, pixelated image of the Wishmaster cover art. Check it out below:
