    Hey, Angelinos! What are you doing on May 1 of next year? If you love epic, majestic Euro metal, then you will be seeing Finland-based symphonic metal storytellers Nightwish. They are planning ahead. The band has announced a prestigious show at the internationally renowned Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, known for hosting artists such as Robert Plant, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Paul Simon and The Talking Heads. The show is slated for this upcoming May 1, 2015. That's almost a year from now.

    Their music is equal parts cinematic storytelling and gothic symphonics and Nightwish continue to expand the breadth and scope of their artistic vision with each successive studio release. The keyboard-driven compositions by band leader and song composer Tuomas Holopainen surpass that of some of the most dynamic film scores and work brilliantly alongside the band's engaging and electrifying Dutch frontwoman Floor Jansen. All told, this will be an absolutely electrifying performance and is an evening under the stars not to be missed.

    Checking in from Europe's Land of a Thousand Lakes, vocalist Floor Jansen shared her thoughts on the special upcoming L.A. show, saying, "It's a great honor for NIGHTWISH to play in this legendary theatre! A fantastic location that will surely enhance the magic of the music. We can't wait to start touring with this new album we're recording now! New and old songs, it will be special to play them live at this amazing place."
