    The very first show for the IMAGINARIUM WORLD TOUR will take place at the GIBSON AMPHITHEATRE, Universal City, CA, U.S.A, on Saturday the 21st of January 2012.

    This will be the biggest NIGHTWISH show production ever on the North American soil and strictly a one-off -- there will be no US tour until later in 2012.

    The ticket sales will begin soon.


    ....

    Fuck, guess I'm making a trip out to LA.

    They probably decided to put all their money towards one large show. Gibson Amphitheatre can seat over 6000 people and is probably a lot cheaper than a place like Radio City in NYC which is just a little smaller. They sold out Wiltern last time they played which is 2300.

    Looks like the same time frame as the 2012 NAMM convention. They might be in town for that & scheduled a show. I think Angra did the same this past January.

    Radio City can also seat just over 6,000.

    Whoops, I read the 5933 # which I guess doesn't include the pit seating which brings it to 6015

    Difference is that Nightwish uses pyro in their shows overseas. You cannot do that in Radio City.

    So I'm guessing Enter the Vault will be selling tickets for this next Friday.

    I cant see them selling out a place they've never headlined before. Very, very ambitious even with a worldwide fan base.

    Gibson is 2x the size of The Wiltern. So unless part of the venue is curtained off, another act brought on or Live Nation "papers it" .....dunno.

    And, with tickets being available at $275 a pop at Enter The Vault ($250 plus $25 Service charge) how many people may be turned off?

    Er, nevermind. Tix are half gone already.

    Crap, those tix are expensive. Cheapest I could find were here for $105. Looks like I'm going to have to pass.
