Nuclear Blast headlined this Nightwish - Imaginaerum World Tour 2012-2013!. But began their opening paragraph: "The fans of Nightwish had to be patient for a long time. Finally the time has come. After more than four years, Nightwish will release their long-desired fifth studio album entitled Imaginaerum on the 2nd of December 2011. At the same time, the album serves as the soundtrack to a movie that will involve an old balladeer with an incredible power of imagination as its protagonist. Imaginaerum appeals to our fantasies and long forgotten desires from a magical world. The anticipation is huge, for it’s been three and a half years now that the Finns raised the roofs of sold-out stadiums. Nighwish are known for their exceptional special effects and brilliant stage and light shows. The creative work of Nighwish is bombastic, their sound epic, passionate and breathtaking. How their new album sounds and in what way it’ll be effectuated visually can be experienced on the Imaginaerum world tour in spring."
