Finnish symphonic metal titans Nightwish have their sights locked on Australia, with plans to return to our shores at the start of next year for their Endless Forms Most Beautiful tour.
Armed with their 2015 album release of the same name, the Floor Jansen-fronted metallic maestros will arrive Down Under in January 2016, for a run of five dates across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
The band will be performing tracks off their brand spanker, which hit number 16 on the ARIA charts mind you, as well as a generous selection of fan favourites from across their entire catalogue.
Nightwish, who parted ways with their founding vocalist Anette Olzon back in 2012, last visited Australia in 2013 with Jansen at the helm.
Tickets to their 2016 Australian tour go on sale from Monday 18th May, with limited VIP meet and greet passes available for 20 fans per show.
