Tuomas Holopainen, Nightwish
3/12/2016, City National Civic Auditorium, San Jose
Another heavily Finnish tour came to San Jose with Nightwish, Sonata Arctica and Delain from The Netherlands. I'm partial for Finnish bands and it's always great to see any of them make it all the way to US west coast. This is the 2nd time I saw Nightwish with Floor Jansen and the show was definitely better than the previous one in San Francisco. The previous time I saw the band Floor had just gotten in to fill in for Anette. Tuomas who's the musical brain of the operation is usually not the most visible character on stage and it's great to get photos of him when he's really into the music.
