The band were initially scheduled to perform three dates in China in April 2020. In January 2021, those shows in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou were postponed to January 2022 – which have now been pushed even further back.
Now, the 2023 tour will now consist of four shows in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and new shows in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Jakarta. While dates and venues for the concerts have been announced, ticket sale dates have yet to be confirmed.
The tour is being held in support of Nightwish’s 2020 album, ‘Human. :II: Nature.’ (stylised as ‘HVMAN. :||: NATVRE’). The album featured lead singles ‘Noise’ and ‘How Is The Heart?’. The record – their ninth – marks their first double-release, the second half featuring lush orchestral music over the band’s core metal.
