Nightwish Plays Atlanta to Kick Off Their "Decades" Tour

Nightwish played the first date of their “Decades” Tour. The band had announced the setlist for the show would be “very special,” saying they would feature “rarely heard material from the earlier era, and excitingly for both band and fans, they will revisit the old songs with some new twists.”
They were not kidding. Older tracks like “Elvenpath,” “Devil & the Deep, Dark Ocean” and “Slaying the Dreamer” made their live returns. Possibly most surprising was the performance of their first single, “The Carpenter” for the first time since 1998, with Troy Donockley taking on the song’s male vocals. Many of the performances were special for another reason, too: it was the first time current lead singer Floor Jansen was performing them for a live audience.

The set was also dotted with live favorites including “Nemo,” “Élan” and Chapters I, II and III of “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The final performance was live mainstay “Ghost Love Score.”
But the true closing number was a recording of the spoken Chapters IV and V of “The Greatest Show on Earth,” sending the audience home with the words "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
The band has made it clear that this is a special setlist for the current tour, so make sure you catch it while you can. The band will be playing venues across the US and Canada through the end of April before heading to the UK and Europe for a series of summer festivals and tour dates to run through December.
