Nightwish return to Kiev with a big solo concert.
What does a person remember when he is told about Finland? In most cases - about music. After all, a whole galaxy of groups came out from there, which influenced the musical tastes of Ukrainians in the 2000s - Poets Of The Fall, HIM, The Rasmus ...
... well, and, of course, Nightwish. A living legend from Finland returns to Ukraine as part of a world tour. Well, and as usual with legends, Nightwish go with his retinue - young, but popular compatriots Beast In Black.

Perhaps only Nightwish can be called the most popular group from Finland in the whole world. They were able to popularize symphonic metal.
And they were so able that even those people who were extremely skeptical of such music began to fan from it. Now those who had any doubts about aerobatics Nightwish will be able to dispel them.
Probably, no one suspected that 23 years ago a group would appear in the town of Kitee, which would not only break the charts, but also become the hallmark of the heavy music of the whole country.
Right now, Nightwish is six people who have almost five million Facebook followers. These are nine million albums sold worldwide, and one million of them are in Finland.
These are stable hits in the top 50 of the American Billboard chart with several albums and the first lines of most European charts. These are thirteen songs that took first place in the Finland singles charts, despite the increased popularity of hip-hop and pop music. These are the imperishable hits of Nemo and I Wish I Had An Angel, which are familiar to more than one generation.
But most importantly, Nightwish is a group that can conquer, fascinate and surprise even those people who are never surprised at anything.
