“We Were Here”: NIGHTWISH at Queen Elizabeth Theatre Vancouver, 7 April 2018 (Photo Gallery & Gig Review)

People literally came from far and wide for the recent Nightwish show at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver (we spoke with folks from cities as far-flung as Montreal and San Diego) to catch the band’s retrospective “Decades” tour – and we’ve never seen so many smiling faces at a metal show.

Time constraints being what they are, we’ll skip the lengthy analysis in order to meet our posting deadline but suffice to say that this is the sort of show we love to see – a band at the height of their respective careers and talents, meticulously crafting a show of fan favourites old and new – truly, an unforgettable shared experience.

The only question remaining is, what happens next? After all the touring to support their previous album, Endless Forms Most Beautiful, will Nightwish take a lengthy (and certainly well-deserved) hiatus at the end of the Decades tour?  Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
