An Evening with Symphony: Nightwish in Manila

On the evening of March 29, fans of the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish gathered at the SM Skydome for what promised to be a night of epic music and unforgettable performances. The band had been touring extensively in support of their latest album, and this stop in Manila, presented by PULP Live World, had been highly anticipated by local music lovers.

As the lights dimmed and the first notes of “Music” and “Noise” rang out, the crowd erupted in cheers and applause, signaling the start of a journey through Nightwish’s incredible repertoire. The band’s signature sound, blending heavy metal riffs with symphonic and operatic elements, was on full display, with each song performed with precision and passion.
Frontwoman Floor Jansen was a powerhouse on the stage, her voice soaring high and low, bringing to life classic Nightwish songs such as “Nemo” and “Storytime,” and newer hits like “Élan” and “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Her stage presence was mesmerizing, and the crowd couldn’t help but sing along to every word.

The band’s instrumentalists, led by founder and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, were equally impressive, each bringing their unique skills and talents to the fore. Guitarist Emppu Vuorinen shredded with abandon, while drummer Kai Hahto pounded the skins with relentless energy. Bassist Marco Hietala and Troy Donockley on the uilleann pipes and whistle rounded out the sound, creating a sonic landscape that was both dramatic and beautiful.

As the set drew to a close, the crowd’s energy didn’t wane, and Nightwish came back for an encore, performing favorites like “Ghost Love Score” and “The Greatest Show On Earth.” The night ended on a high note, with the band members taking their bows and the crowd cheering for one more song.

For those in attendance, the Nightwish concert will no doubt remain a cherished memory, a testament to the band’s talent and passion for music.
