    You haven't even heard her do it and you're jumping to conclusions?

    And why not? Look, before you send out the white-sheeted guys with the nooses in hand, why don't you see her live first? Her performance may be an epiphany to you.

    I've heard her voice and know it pertains to the pop/contemporary style. Singing those old songs in that style is probably going to sound really weird to those of us used to (and those who prefer) Tarja's operatic voice. At least on those songs. *shrugg*
    I am interested to hear what it might sound like but i'm not anticipating something fantastic. sorry :p haha

    You got to also remember that this was a CD release party, in which the NIGHTWISH cover band NACHTWASSER performed, which turned out to actually be NIGHTWISH. I believe once they hit the tour circuit you will see them in true NIGHTWISH form, thought not with the Opera vocals of Tarja. And I also have to say Read the book, and alot of things will become clearer.

    Two songs is not bad considering they only played one(Sleeping Sun)at pp4. So adding Sacrament of Wilderness(which is a tough song to sing)is a good sign to me.
    Cant wait to hear her sing the old stuff.

    Set list looks good to me. I gotta believe they'll be mixing it up a bit more at future shows, too. And if they do, hopefully I Wish I Had an Angel gets lost in the mix. Can't stand it, and as a closer it's even worse.

    Can't agree more. I recently got the End of an Era DVD, and I would've liked to have seen "Over the Hills" swapped with "I Wish I Had an Angel." Oh well...

    Open with "Bye, Bye Beautiful", and then close with "Wish I Had An Angel" anything in between is just the icing on the cake.

    Amaranth
    Eva
    Sahara
    Stargazers
    The Riddler
    Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean
    The Pharoah Sails to Orion
    Wanderlust
    Kinslayer
    Wishmaster
    Crownless
    Sleeping Sun
    Romanticide

    They should play that imo, random I made but I think 3-4 new songs and the rest old is plenty for new album promotion, look at Sonata Arctica.

    Heh, I predicted that would be their opener and everyone told me I was nuts. Too inflamatory. I didn't think the guys would care. It's the perfect opener for this tour.

    This is from the printed setlist that someone grabbed from the stage after the Nachtwasser concert:
    I assume that Blood Diamond is from the movie soundtrack composed by James Newton Howard.

    They have said in recent interviews that they rehearsed 10 tracks from DPP and 20 old songs (also made new backing tracks to the oldies for Anette). The rate between old/new songs played at gigs is planned to be about 60/40.

    As you can see there are alternative pairs marked for three tracks; obviously the setlist will change between gigs more often than on their previous tours.
    Which suits very well to me :saint:

    Most everyone I talked to figured this was a no brainer. Couldn't see them opening with an epic song, and Amaranth is the single so I couldn't see that either. Those aside, nothing else on DPP lends itself to an opener better than Bye Bye Beautiful.

    Sounds like a great setlist imo. Look forward to see them in NYC in a few weeks.
