NIGHTWISH has been forced to postpone its previously announced fall 2020 European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping the globe. The new dates will now take place in May 2021 and will include shows in U.K., France, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
Mastermind Tuomas Holopainen comments: "During these most peculiar and challenging times, we've been forced to reschedule our shows, and that's now also the case with the European leg of the 'Human :II: Nature' world tour. This is a most unfortunate, but necessary move in order ensure everyone's safety and make the best out of this bizarreness that all of you and us are going through. It's not for forever though, and The Caravan will soon be on the move again. Until then, take care of each other and see you all in the spring of 2021!"
