Good thing the money is going to charity. People (at least around here) will feel alot of exitement until that day
Lanfawn - 20.02.2007 at 17:52  
finally! anticipating this...

Hmmm, would tuomas go totally biblical with the new single?
Golden Wing - 20.02.2007 at 18:28  
Ohhh.. we have to wait so long! I hope that new song and singer will be worth such long waiting, otherwise Nightwish will be the biggest letdown in my life...

So we know about the release date of the new album, but who is the new singer of Nightwish?
Princ_Of_Horror - 21.02.2007 at 10:08, one thing I know..the new singer has big expectations to fill..will she be as good as Tarja or not we are yet to see..but some how I think I will be saying 'the old Nightwish was better'..but time will tell..

Maybe most of us have thought that since the departure of Tarja
Katatronik - 21.02.2007 at 13:27  
The mystery goes on...
Yes we all hope that the new singer will be as good as Tarja... IMO, she will be "different", not a copy of Tarja...
penguin_king - 21.02.2007 at 13:27  
Tarja was good for the band, but she was becoming too much of a diva, as stated in the letter Tuomas and the others wrote. The new singer will breathe life into the band, IMO, and signify a new change. It won't be the same, but they'll still be as good, maybe even better.
AnarChrist - 21.02.2007 at 15:45  
I'm quite sure that the name of the new singer is Eva,I don't know why though.
NortheRnmost - 21.02.2007 at 18:09  
HYPE HYPE! Tarja returns as a singer, just a pr trick But seriously, why look for a new singer when they have Marco?
Ziburan - 07.03.2007 at 11:46  
I think it would be better not to just have Marco as singer.
The mixture of a male and a female voice fitted nicely in Nightwish.
I do agree that the new singer is probably not a copy of Tarja.
Better not I would say.
Lord_BeTzE - 12.03.2007 at 15:24  
Ok, let's see what Tuomas's gonna show now... I wish they don't change everything. I can't wait so much time
The Captain - 12.03.2007 at 18:41  
The biggest thing that I am waiting on is what style the new singer will sing. Will Nightwish go in a new direction and choose a extreme female singer? Or will they stick with the same female classic/opera singer that made them stick out? Will the singer even be female at all? Tune in May 30th to find out.
Youngblood1AB - 17.03.2007 at 12:31  
That place they are kicking off their tour at... its a real dump!

A sin for a band as elegant as Nightwish!
Imraghil - 07.07.2007 at 15:31
