Nightwish - 04/04/08

The first proper gig of the year! Also the first blog entry of 2008, and its been a while coming hasn't it! So onto Nightwish at the Manchester Apollo. I was very much looking forward to this one as it was the first gig of theirs that i had seen with the new singer - Anette Olzon, who has a totally different presence and voice than their old singer Tarja Turunen.

So not suprisingly given the differing range of Anette's voice, the band stuck mainly to songs from last years "Dark Passion Play" album, with a smattering of old tunes thrown in for good measure.

Unfortunately the soundman should be shot, as the sound was terrible to begin with and not very loud at all throughout the whole show! However the bands performance was very good! Luckily Nightwish are the main headliners at this years 3 day Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival, where I can re-evalue them. It was still a lot of fun though!

Next up in the world of metal is the "Metal Hammer - Defenders Of The Faith Tour" that will thunder through Manchester Academy next Friday (25/04/08) which will be reported on soon after! See you then!
