White Pearl, Black Oceans?!?!?! :wow:

I had been hoping for Beauty and the Beast w/ Tony joining Nightwish. But, whatever, THIS IS STILL AMAZING OHWOW.

I also like Draw Me being in the Sonata set being the real ballad of the set in place of Broken or Tallulah. I like all of their ballad-y songs, but I'm glad that it's a different one than when I saw them last October.

Seeing this tonight in Worcester. Will report any set changes.

...But, out of curiosity, what is the surprise in Nightwish's set? It all seems pretty par for the course lately, though it's nice to see Sacrament is back. I'd actually have to say the biggest shock of their set is the absence of Nemo.

Nightwish didn't do Nemo?

I've never listened to Nightwish at all, but I thought Nemo was, like, they're Number Of The Beast, so to speak.

a little dissapointed with Sonata's setlist
except for White Pearl, Black Oceans

and i still think Nightwish plays too much new stuff
i like the new stuff and all but half the setlist is new
but glad to see The Siren, Dead to the World, and Sacrament Of Wilderness.

cant wait for the hollywood show!

Yeah, the surprise in the Nightwish set I was referring to was the absence of " Nemo. " Also, they did " Slaying The Dreamer " which hasn't been done in a while.

Oh. Didn't even notice that, they played it last year when I saw them, so it didn't shock me to see it on the set (They ended up not playing it at my date this go around, though, hah). I forgot that I hadn't seen it on many of the sets since then.
