Finnish/Dutch/British symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH will release “Decades: Live In Buenos Aires” on December 6 as a Blu-ray digibook, 2CD digipak, Blu-ray+2CD earbook and 3LP via Nuclear Blast. The set was recorded on September 30, 2018 at Estadio Malvinas in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the “Decades” tour in support of the band’s compilation album of the same name. The “Decades” tour ran from March 9, 2018 to December 15, 2018 and consisted of stops in 82 cities across Europe, North America and South America. 

A performance clip of the song “Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean”, taken from “Decades: Live In Buenos Aires”, can be seen below.

“Decades: Live In Buenos Aires” was captured by 19 cameras on that extraordinary night in Argentina. NIGHTWISH came out to the rousing “End Of All Hope” and took its final bow to the unmatched epic “Ghost Love Score”. In between saw a set filled with pure trailblazing glory — incorporating distinguished tracks “Wish I Had An Angel”, “Sacrament Of Wilderness”, “Elvenpath”,“Devil & The Deep Dark Ocean”,“Dead Boy’s Poem” and many more. Pre-order your copy here or at the NIGHTWISH webshop.

“I didn’t just want to pick out the most successful NIGHTWISH songs for this tour,” keyboardist and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen explains. “Instead, I asked myself which songs I would play to somebody who had never heard of our band. At some point during the preparation process, I realized that I was smiling all the time. I remembered the curious, innocent boy writing all of these songs.”

Tentatively due in the spring, NIGHTWISH‘s next album will mark the band’s second full-length release with singer Floor Jansen, who has been touring with the group since 2012. Holopainen said last year that the arranging and recording process for NIGHTWISH‘s follow-up to 2015’s “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” album would take most of 2019. Tuomas also said that there is a lyrical theme tying together all the songs he has written for NIGHTWISH‘s next record, but he declined to elaborate.
