“Vehicle Of Spirit” is the name of the upcoming live DVD package of the finnish Symphonic Metal band Nightwish that will be release on November 2016.
The band has been playing performing around the world their “Endless Forms Most Beatiful Tour” for a year and a half, a tour with never seen pyro effects, video screens, wind machines sold out arenas that made it unforgettable , so now Nightwish decide to release their new live DVD that will include 2 full concerts and plenty of bonus material.
Tuomas Holopainen: “The title »Vehicle Of Spirit« came from a friend of Troy’s, who after seeing our show a few years ago defined NIGHTWISH as ‘A vehicle of spirit that defies category’. That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title.
“I would say the main part of the DVD are those two shows, both Wembley and Tampere. Wembley is mentioned first due to its recognizability and legendary status. I remember the show being very special, both a goal achieved, and a starting point. The crowd was heartwarming. The presence of Richard Dawkins on stage was just mind-blowing. The overall experience was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill ride! The show in Ratina Stadion, Tampere, was a home crowd specialty (for 4/6th of the band) with the biggest stage production we’ve ever had. A lovely atmosphere throughout the concert, with many same faces in the front row as there were 15 years ago. Heartfelt.”
About the artwork on this DVD, we can see that Nightwish goes for an alternative idea this time and in words of their Keyboardist and Songwriter, Tuomas Holopainen:
“We didn`t want to include a traditional band shot for the cover, as on the previous DVD release »Showtime, Storytime«. So we started brainstorming on different options and the idea of a classic silent movie era Hollywood visuals quickly came up.
With those classic slogans the cover has a little tongue-in-cheek-touch to it, but it’s still classy and eye catching in its simplicity and originality.”
