Nightwish,one of the world’s leading symphonic metal bands and Finland’s most successful music export – sets the stage for an exquisite interactive experience in March 2021.
In ‘An Evening with Nightwish in a Virtual World’, the band will perform at The Islanders Arms, a tavern built in virtual reality. The event takes place on two nights, Friday March 12th and Saturday March 13th 2021.
On both evenings, the audience can expect an unforgettable 90-minute performance, and will get to hear songs from the latest album Human. :II: Nature. live for the first time. The setlist has variation each night.
Released in April amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Human. :II: Nature. has not been performed live yet. Having had to postpone their world tour in 2020, Nightwish decided to create something unique to lighten up the dark times.
A full-length live experience that reaches magical dimensions will be set in virtual reality – at The Islanders Arms tavern. During the evening, both the band and the audience can dive into diverse imaginary 3D worlds.
The technical production is led by Zoan, whose Burst Live platform also powered Finnish rap superstars JVG’s May 1st virtual reality show that attracted more than a million viewers last spring.
For an interactive virtual show experience, members of the audience can create avatars and join the show on their computers or mobile devices. The audience can react with gestures, cheers or emojis, and chat with other fans. One can also dress up their avatar with Nightwish merchandise.
