After 12 years, Nightwish’s ex vocalist Tarja Turunen will appear on stage with Marco Hietala, bass player of the band, as a part of the “Raskastan Joulua” tour, a series of live performances in Finland for Christmas. Hietala will perform in all 25 dates, while Tarja on the last 4. Marco commented that will not let the past affect their current collaboration and hopes everything will go as planned. Tarja Turunen served as a Nightwish vocalist from 1997-2005, when she was fired after an open letter she received on October 21 2005, after the last date of their “Once” tour, which was recorded as a DVD called “End Of An Era”.
