Finland-based symphonic metal masters NIGHTWISH have sold out their biggest UK show to date. They will headline the 12,000 capacity sold-out Wembley Arena on the 19th December - making history as the first Finnish band to ever headline the venue.
Nightwish's Tuomas Holopainen comments
'The Wembley Arena show will surely be the most fantastic finale to this ongoing European tour. "Sold Out Wembley" -a phrase from every musician's dreamland, THANK YOU! '
Endless Forms Most Beautiful entered the UK National Charts at #12 earlier this year, making this the band's highest UK chart position to date. The album also debuted at #3 in the Indie Chart and #1 in the Rock Chart as well as the topping the charts in the band's native Finland and elsewhere throughout Europe.
