Nightwish fans should pay attention, as Tarja Turunen is coming to Nijmegen for a show. The former front woman of Nightwish has a vocal reach of three octaves to die for. Under the name Tarja she has been conquering the hearts of thousands of metal fans since 2005 on her own. With her fantastic band of course, as these men can play unbelievably tight. Her solo records feature both symphonic metal and classical music.
Her seventh (!) solo album “In the Raw” came out recently. Because of her experience and craftsmanship this is yet another terrific album. She is supported by Björn Strid of Soilwork and Lacuna Coil’s vocalist Cristina Scabbia. The (sometimes electronic) cinematic background music gives the overall symphonic metal sound an extra layer of depth. Of course, the incredibly catchy refrains and explosive production are still present. We personally think this is going to be a show of the same high quality!
