After some internet ninja action worthy of note, Mrs Rolling Eyeballs successfully scored Nightwish tickets for us today, which means that we’re going to see them in action in Manchester, at the O2 Apollo on Sunday November 4th.
Permit me to now do the Snoopy Dance around the living room at the very prospect of seeing one of my favourite bands live for the first time.
Happily, we’re in the seated section, which means that I can be authentically curmudgeonly in the company of my fellow old rockers rather than mixing it up down the front with people who still have their own teeth and no back pain to speak of. I look forward to boring you all with more observations and nerding out over Nightwish nearer to the time (by which point, Mrs Rolling Eyeballs will hopefully be familiar with the songs and able to sing along with Anette Olzon – knowing my wife’s lovely voice, she might even have a shot at some of the Tarja era stuff, too…)
