NIGHTWISH Frontwoman To Embark On Christmas Concert Tour

In the wake of the tremendous success of her Christmas solo single in Finland, NIGHTWISH frontwoman Tarja Turunen has agreed to embark on a Christmas concert tour in December 2005. Exact cities and dates will be announced during the coming months.

As previously reported, Turunen's single, "Yhden Enkelin Unelma" ("One Angel's Dream"), has been certified gold in Finland for sales in excess of 5,000 copies (gold certification for albums is 15,000 copies). The single, which was released in early December, entered the Finnish single chart at position No. 2 and has since moved into the No. 1 slot, where it has remained for the past three weeks.

Turunen recently completed a video shoot for her collaboration with German "Star Search" winner Martin Kesici on his song "Leaving You for Me", which is due to appear on Kesici's second album. The "Leaving You for Me" single is scheduled for release on January 31, 2005 and will include the promotional video for the song.
