Nightwish are due to embark on a North American tour early next year. The band will tour a series of American and Canadian cities. Delain are due to support at all events.

Bassist Marco Hietala had this to say about the tour: “Hi to all! Our work on the new album has been going with serious productive speed and comfortable ease at the same time. It´s going to be great to get it out to you and play these pieces live. And with this announcement it will obviously happen quite soon! Here are the dates for the North-American shows. Come on over and we´ll raise hell and kick some arses together!”
