This week I had the pleasure of seeing Nightwish on their Imaginarum tour (read my interview with Tuomas Holopainen here). Vocalist Annette Olzon recently departed the band, and the incredibly talented Floor Jansen is handling vocals for this tour. Many – scratch that, all – fans are calling for Floor to be appointed full-time singer, and that would be amazing. She’s seriously the best live singer I’ve ever heard.

Here are some pics I took on the night. Hope you dig ‘em! And check out my Steel Panther photo special.

Peter Hodgson Hi! I'm Peter Hodgson. I write for Gibson.com, Australian Guitar, Australian Musician, Mixdown Magazine (including my instructional column, 'Unleash Your Inner Rock God,' which has been running since 2007), BluntBeat (including their weekly hard rock/metal column Crunch) and The Brag. And I'm Assistant Social Coordinator with Seymour Duncan. I've been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and I've been writing for magazines since I was 18. I've also worked as a guitar teacher (up to 50 students a week), a setup tech, a newspaper editor, and I've also dabbled in radio a little bit. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and my hobbies include drinking way too much coffee, and eating way too much Mexican food. You can check out my guitar playing at Bandcamp or on YouTube, and feel free to email me at iheartguitarblog@gmail.com If you'd like to support the site, feel free to kick in a couple o'bucks using this donation button.
