Vocalist Floor Jansen (REVAMP, ex-AFTER FOREVER), who replaced NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon to finish out the remainder of shows on the band's North American tour for Imaginaerum, has issued the following update:
"A big hello from Oklahoma City! Another backstage moment, and actually again, I am writing right before the meet & great we’ll have today!
I left you in Anaheim. We had a nice meet & great there. So wonderful to see people really welcome me into the band! We do one every night now and it’s great for me to meet loyal Nightwish fans who are happy to see me and thank me for stepping in. I feel loved!!!
Also behind the scenes I meet the most wonderful people! We played 'Higher Than Hope' after I met the mother and sister of the man whom this song is about. They came to the show in Anaheim and when they were also there the day after in San Diego, we played it for them. Emotional rollercoaster, but so beautiful! Music is emotion and to be able to sing these songs live is just something special, I can’t put this into words really…
My cold is almost gone and hasn’t been bothering me when I sing anymore. I can now belt out the notes and vary in dynamics and vocal styles. The songs scream for that! It feels so good!
