Nightwish have once again been forced to reschedule their UK and European tour.

The Finnish symphonic metallers were originally supposed to be hitting the road in November and December 2020, before rescheduling the Human :II: Nature run for May 2021 due to COVID. Unfortunately, though, as the pandemic continues, the band have pushed the dates back again – now to the end of the year. They'll be joined at the shows by Amorphis and Turmion Kätilöt.

Announcing the first postponement, Tuomas Holopainen called the situation "a most unfortunate but necessary move in order ensure everyone’s safety and make the best out of this bizarreness that all of you and us are going through".

"It’s not for forever though, and The Caravan will soon be on the move again," he added.

Of course, this time around the band will be without bassist/co-vocalist Marko Hietala, who left Nighwish earlier this month citing a combination of disillusion with the music industry and chronic depression.
