Nightwish

They're better than they've ever been live now with Floor, definitely time for a headlining return.

I'd be happy with that. Much better than most higher up bands.

A very hit and miss live band for me. Bloodstock '08 and Wacken '13 they were one of the best bands there, Hellfest this year and the last time I saw them on tour though they were super dull.

Really dislike the new vocalist, but mostly their music is good enough that it doesn't really matter.

So as long as they promise to avoid playing stuff off the last 2 albums and not be boring, I'd love to see them headline a day.

Now they've got a top quality frontwoman again, I would like to see them :)

Interesting. I saw them in Brum when Floor was just the "temporary" singer. There was a fairly robust chant from the crowd of "Best singer yet!" I tend to agree with that. I've been really disappointed with Re-Vamp: the music doesn't do it for me. But I do like Floor, both as a singer and as a front-woman, and I would love to see this version of Nightwish at Bloodstock.

WTF? My universe is collapsing. I find myself on the verge of agreeing with Killing_time :o The thing is, Floor's a great vocalist, and a huge improvement over Anette. But Tuomas has been writing some really uninspiring songs lately, and he's certainly not making best use of Floor's vocal talents. I'll probably want to see them anyway, just because she'll do well with the back catalogue. But they're not the band they once were.

Yes, a million times yes!

I liked the band with Tarja and the other woman, but I LOVE them with Floor. One hell of a voice and their latest album is amazing.

Really? I thought they were on autopilot at BOA 08, but they utterly smashed it at Hellfest this year, it was a phenomenal performance, even some of my friends who don't even like them said they were on fire that night.

I massively prefer them with live Floor, Annete never really seemed to fit in and Tarja didn't want to be there, they're easily the best live they've ever been now. And as for the albums, I don't think they've gone downhill at all since Tarja left, in fact I think they've improved, Imaginareum and EFMB were both brilliant albums.

A big YES then.

Agreed. I've seen them I think 7 times and that was by far the worst performance I've seen from them.
