Finnish sextet NIGHTWISH recently released their long-awaited ninth record “HUMAN. :II: NATURE.” – it conquered the charts worldwide, including landing them a #1 in their home-country of Finland and Germany, and #2 in Canada, Austria, Hungary and Switzerland. Today, the band announce that they’ve had to postpone their European tour that was originally scheduled for November and December of 2020, until May 2021.
Mastermind Tuomas Holopainen comments: “During these most peculiar and challenging times we`ve been forced to reschedule our shows, and that`s now also the case with the European leg of the “Human :II: Nature” World tour. Please check the new dates below.
This is a most unfortunate, but necessary move in order ensure everyone`s safety and
make the best out of this bizarreness that all of you and us are going through.
It`s not for forever, though, and The Caravan will soon be on the move again.
Until then, take care of each other & see you all in the spring of 2021!”
