Finnish/Swedish symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH will perform at the House of Blues in New Orleans, Louisiana on September 20 as part of the third U.S. leg of the band's tour in support of the "Dark Passion Play" album. The trek, which will also include a September 24 date at the Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, North Carolina, is tentatively scheduled to begin at the end of August and run through the end of September. Final details, including special guest support and on-sale dates, will be officially announced in early April. Discussions have also started to bring the band back to North America in early 2009 for additional touring. Those plans should be finalized by the summer.

In other news, NIGHTWISH has officially sold out of all VIP tickets for its spring 2008 tour.

If they sucked so bad, their VIP tickets wouldn't be sold out months in advance.

I do agree that popularity doesn't equal succes. Even thought Nightwish is far from being a flawless band, they are still pretty good. I can't wait until the era of Tarja fans b*tching about Anette is over. If you don't believe me on this one, check out Nightwish videos on youtube and read the comments.
