Nightwish Announce Australian Tour With Sabaton


Nightwish return to Australia in January 2013 since their sold out tour in 2008 to perform their latest album "Imaginaerum".

" 'Imaginaerum' is an audio visual testament of what Nightwish have always been about. After their last album - Dark Passion Play - they knew they wanted to do something so big, detailed and innovative that it would leave the people experiencing it completely awestruck. So instead of a concept album, the band set the album to a film to accompany the album. Enter the dream emporium...Imaginaerum."

Sabaton will join the Finnish rockers in Sydney and Melbourne as the main opening band, they'll be performing their latest release "Carolus Rex". Other supporting acts include Eyefear, Black Majesty, who will only perform on select days,  and Darker Half.
