Tarja says “No” about returning to Nightwish

Ex-Nightwish frontwoman Tarja Turunen recently told Ilatehti that she won’t return to Nightwish, stating “I would be ready to return to Nightwish – if all the band and management were changed. No one knows what I went through over the years with the band. I accept how hard it is for fans to understand my feelings.

When questioned about her thoughts on Anette recently departing from Nightwish, she stated that it did not surprise her.

Keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen dismissed Tarja at the end of a tour by presenting her with an open letter which was published on the Nightwish website at the same time, which came to great shock from fans of the band and caused many to be quite vocal about the decision. He wrote: “To you, unfortunately, business, money, and things that have nothing to do with emotions have become much more important.

Anette Olzon joined the band in 2007. At the weekend she missed a concert, telling fans she’d had to go to hospital. Nightwish played the planned show with the help of backing singers from tourmates Katatonia. Anette responded by saying that should not have happened. The following day, it was announced she’d left the band, witht eh decision being “mutual”.

The Finnish metal outfit are continuing their Imaginaerum tour with Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen [ex-After Forever/ReVamp] standing in, which has led some fans to believe that she will be joining Nightwish as their new vocalist.

Floor commented “I’m trying to find words to describe how I feel, but it’s impossible to cover it. I’m on a high. The time to prepare was scarily short. I packed and left, and printed the lyrics into my head on the way over from Amsterdam to America. Next day I jumped on board the bus and the adventure began. On the day of the first who we did a long soundcheck to rehearse. You cannot imagine how nervous I was. But the intro started, I ran on staff, and all nerves were gone. The excitement lasted the entire show and way after.
