Makes me wonder if we are gonna get another "Open Letter" kicking out "You-Know-Who".

I'm just happy to have seen them twice on their Very Long World Tour.

Very happy to have seen them twice during this tour, have to agree with Butcher on that.

Nice looking set, but the only song on there that I haven't seen them do but would like to is Romanticide. Ghost Love Score would be cool, but as much as I like her, I'm not sure how it'd be with Anette on vocals.

Actually, it was a pretty solid staple in the Dark Passion Play sets until sometime last year.

Yes Wishmaster is played almost all the time from what I remember. I haven't even been paying attention to their sets at all lately I thought the tour ended months ago. Still a cool set not as cool as the set I saw them do in Toronto in October two years ago but still cool. Damn they all must be burnt out now and how well is Anette's voice holding up? I know she's never performed this long of a tour before in her life.

That's not "years", seeing as how they've done two US tours in the last year (SINGULAR).

But, I'll repeat myself: It was in almost every set until one point last year. I think it was in a handful of last year's US dates too.

I saw them in the fall of '07 and the srping of '08 and Whismaster was played both times. It's deffinately a staple for them because they get a good sing-a-long going with the crowd during the chorus. I haven't seen many recent sets so maybe they just gave it a break for a few months.

i noticed they also stopped playing 'bye bye beautiful' too. Then again, i would have prob blew my voice out during that song lol (which i ended up doing during 'wish i had an angel'

Only 3 songs from AFF/OB/WM/CC!? Shit...

btw Anette's is OK, but for some other kind of music, her voice fits horrible with Nightwish sound.

They never play anything from AFF and I don't really blame them I don't think it was that good compared to the other stuff. From OB they've played SOW on and off this tour but I don't know about anything else. The first time I saw them this tour they did She Is My Sin,WM, Ever Dream and Slaying The Dreamer. The next time they did Come Cover Me, WM and Ever Dream. I know that Dead Boys Poem and Dead To The World have been played a bit during the last half of the tour.

As for Anette her voice fits well with the stuff from DPP that was written for her voice. I try not to be too hard on her with performing the old stuff I think she does an OK job with them but also keep in mind that she's performing songs that were written for someone to sing that has a totally different voice.
She really doesn't deserve all the shit some fans give her all she's doing is performing a job she was hired for. I feel if someone doesn't like the way she fits the band they should put more of the blame on Tuomas instead of her since he's the one who hired her.
