And what an era it was.
5 November 2012 | by lars_hendrikxSee all my reviews

This is without doubt my favorite concert of all time.

The camera-work, the effects and of course the music. Of course, the rating is high because mainly Nightwish fans have watched it, which is natural. You don't start watching a Nightwish DVD when you've never heard about them.

This DVD shows the quality of Nightwish. During certain songs, they can get the entire crowd silent (Ghost Love Score). You can see people crying during the concert because they are overwhelmed by the music, a beautiful sight. I don't deny being a huge Nightwish fan which might influence my rating and review, but you can definitely tell they are doing a very good job during this concert. This is one the few bands that's better live than in the studio. You can really enjoy their music with the ambiance this concert brings.

Definitely a recommendation if you love this era of Nightwish.
