Finnish melancholic dark rock/metal icons AMORPHIS will be direct support to the metallic operatic powerhouse NIGHTWISH for an exclusive North American performance in early 2012. The show will take place at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City on January 21, 2012. Joining them will be DOMMIN. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
“The opportunity of playing exclusive show with NIGHTWISH came about around February,” commented guitarist Esa Holopainen. “We were totally exited about the idea as we didn’t have a chance to do a tour in the US with the Skyforger album. Now we have a special show where we will try to offer as much material as possible from the last two albums. It’s a great privilege to be part of an evening which is going to be memorable and special for everyone.”
