  1. Is Floor still in Nightwish? I am assuming yes, but not sure. Just curious as a fan of the first disc, this band will never play U.S. shores live unless part of one of the cruise ship/festival package deals.

    • I’m not quite sure if she is still apart of Nightwish since she was recruited literally last minute to fill in for the tour. If I find out anything else, I’ll let you know
