Nightwish released their brand new best-of compilation Decades on March 9th via Nuclear Blast to celebrate more than two decades of their career. It's only right, then, that this milestone should be celebrated with an extensive world tour. Currently touring North America, the band has announced that their special guests for the upcoming European shows this November and December will be up and coming heavy metallers Beast In Black, led by former Battle Beast guitarist Anton Kabanen.
