Well that's honestly a shame. I've been a fan of Nightwish when they had Tarja and Anette. Anette was definitely a big change, but I thought it may be a welcome change, because she added a little more spunk to their music. However, I could definitely see where they may have alienated some of their fans when they picked up Anette.It's a shame she's gone, especially in the middle of a tour.

Agreed. Even though the temporary vocalist they are employing Floor Jensen is closer to the style that Tarja brought to the band, i am just ticked off at the timing of this change. Oh well, we will see how it goes...

I agree with that, but you have to question the quality of the music. She's not Tarja, nor is she Anette. A lot of things can go wrong, unfortunately.Definitely let me know how the show goes. I'll be curious.

Wow, I'm surprised.

But Floor Jansen is a fantastic vocalist. I think I prefer her to annette. I'd love to see them now.

Wow seriously?
I have mixed feeling about this since I wasn't ever really the biggest fan of Anette anyway (I preferred Tarja even if she was kinda... erm... well we all saw the letter) But I'm curious to see how this new talent fits into the aesthetic of Nightwish.
