The kick-off show for this highly-anticipated 27-date headlining tour of North America by Finland-based symphonic metal storytellers Nightwish is slated for Thursday, April 9, 2015 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Direct support for the tour will come from Sweden’s avid war historians Sabaton; opening will be Dutch symphonic metallers Delain.

A veritable showcase of two of Nuclear Blast’s most dynamic artists, each date on this tour promises to be an electrifying evening of symphonic anthems, soul-soaring energy, and extraordinary musical grandeur.

Nightwish will be touring in support of their brand new eighth studio album, Endless Forms Most Beautiful, due out in North America on March 31st. Watch the video for the Nightwish single “Elán” – a loving tribute to the stars of Finnish entertainment who came before them – on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel:

Sabaton is touring in support of the 3-disc deluxe edition of Heroes, their Billboard-charting seventh studio album from 2014. Watch the video for the Sabaton single, “To Hell And Back” – which tackles Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in war veterans – on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel:
