As usual with the US/Canada tours, tickets are available from Enter The Vault. There are a limited number of VIP tickets available and all tickets go on sale from June 6th.


...another North American tour? HECK YES. I'm so excited! I didn't get a VIP ticket last time but I really think I will this time. :D


It seems rather strange to us lot in Europe that they're doing 2 North American tours and only one much smaller European tour, haha. Especially given Nightwish's popularity in Europe. I suppose America is just so huge and they're trying to get cover as much of it as possible.

I think we're all just hoping that a UK tour or a bigger European tour will be announced eventually!
