Finland-based symphonic metal storytellers NIGHTWISH will make their debut at the iconic Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday, May 1, 2015. The band will support their upcoming spring 2015 studio album. VIP tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 9 at www.EnterTheVault.com. General tickets go on sale Friday, September 12.

Equal parts cinematic storytelling and gothic symphonics, Nightwish have sold more than 7 million albums worldwide and have received over 60 Gold and Platinum awards, making them Finland’s most successful rock band.

Hugely influential, unique, and unrivaled in the heavy metal pantheon, NIGHTWISH continue to expand the breadth and scope of their artistic vision with each successive release. Their 2011 studio album, Imaginaerum, arrived into the world with a visual counterpart “Imaginaerum – The Movie,” an album-length film directed by Stobe Harju and produced by Solar Filmswhich created a musical fantasy world in the vein of David Lynch, Neil Gaiman, and Cirque du Soleil. A journey between two different dimensions, the film tells an extraordinary tale of the power of imagination & memory and what is most important in life.

The keyboard-driven compositions from bandleader Tuomas Holopainen surpass that of some of the most brilliant film scores and work brilliantly alongside their engaging and electrifying Dutch frontwoman Floor Jansen, who was announced as an official member of the band – along with British multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley – in October of last year. The band’s 2013 “Imaginaerum World Tour,” consisting of 104 shows in 34 countries and a total audience of over 1.5 million fans around the globe, was captured in the live DVD / Blu-ray release Showtime, Storytime and includes the band’s live Wacken Open Air set in front of 85,000 fans plus the two-hour Ville Lipiäinen-directed documentary film “Please Learn the Setlist in 48 Hours.”

Soaring emotion, divine melodies, haunting choruses, and grandiose orchestrations, all will be treated to endearing NIGHTWISH fan favorites such as “Ghost Love Score,” “Nemo,” “Wish I Had An Angel,” “Bye Bye Beautiful,” and “I Want My Tears Back.”

Multi-platinum rock band Styx returns to the City National Civic of San Jose on January 28.

With over 30 million records sold in North America alone, Styx is one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet. Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman have been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 40-year history.

On January 31, 2012, Eagle Rock Entertainment released Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live on DVD, Blu-Ray, and DVD/2CD. This show was recorded November 9, 2010 at the historic Orpheum Theater in Memphis, on the tour that saw them perform both these albums in their entirety for the first time. The 20-song, two-hour and 11-minute presentation features stunning high-definition visuals accenting the complex musical arrangements recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, and LPCM Stereo. The staging of these two multi-platinum albums and the fevered response makes this concert a must for all STYX fans. Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live also includes the bonus feature “Putting On The Show,” an inside look at the people and equipment needed to stage such a massive spectacle. On May 7, 2013, Eagle Rock Entertainment released the entire concert as a 2CD set entitled The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live.

STYX also released their double-disc REGENERATION, VOLUME I & II on October 24, 2012 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. In addition to thirteen STYX classics and a brand new song, “Difference In The World,” the collection also includes interpretations of “High Enough,” and “Coming Of Age,” originally recorded by Damn Yankees, which featured Tommy Shaw, along with Night Ranger’s Jack Blades, Ted Nugent and drummer Michael Cartellone. The band had originally re-recorded these acclaimed anthems to sell only at their live shows, as they continued to tour the globe and introduce a new generation of fans to their chart-topping hits. Now, for the first time, this music has been made commercially available.

Over the course of their illustrious career they’ve performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Throughout their career, they have had two Super-Bowl appearances, multiple Pollstar box office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Yes (to name a few), and no end in sight. STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.

Two bona fide guitar heroes in their respective fields – Eric Johnson in the rock realm and Mike Stern in the jazz world – go toe-to-toe on Eclectic, a scintillating musical showcase that brings together their disparate influences in one potent package for one night at City National Grove of Anaheim on January 22.

Guitar aficionados of all stripes will stand slack-jawed hearing these formidable six-stringers exchanging high octane licks on Stern’s funky “Roll With It” and Johnson’s cruising pop anthem “Hullabaloo.” The two dip into a jazzy bag on Eric’s “Tidal” and on Mike’s surging modal romp “Remember.” More fretboard flights ensue on Johnson’s jazzy “Benny Man’s Blues” and on Stern’s dark, slow-grooving “You Never Know.” It’s somehow fitting that these two sons of Jimi close out this six-string extravaganza with a scorching rendition of the famous Hendrix blues, “Red House,” with each of them trading vocal choruses. “It was my singing debut,” says Stern. “I sang the first verse and Eric sang the second verse, then he sings the first two lines of the third verse and I sing the last two lines of the third verse.” Sterns sums up the project by saying, “This whole record, even though we did it in the studio, was really recorded live. A couple of things were fixed but there was that spontaneous quality which is what we were looking for and I definitely think that’s what we got. I really dig the way this record came out. It has a lot of energy and a lot of musicality.”

Recorded at Johnson’s studio in his native Austin, Texas, Eclectic, scheduled for release on October 27, 2014 on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group.

With Johnson’s warm-toned distortion licks, smooth intervallic leaps up the fretboard and his occasional audacious wah-wah licks blending organically with Stern’s fiery be-bop and blues-based vocabulary, Eclectic is chockfull of thrilling fretboard fusillades, tempered with some uncannily lyrical six-string work by two of the most esteemed players of their generation. For music aficionados, this collaboration is a match made in heaven.

Multi-platinum rock band Styx returns to City National Grove of Anaheim on January 21.

With over 30 million records sold in North America alone, Styx is one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet. Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman have been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 40-year history.

Early on, Styx’s music reflected such then-current prog rockers as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and the Moody Blues, as evidenced by such releases as 1972′s self-titled debut, 1973′s Styx II, 1974′s The Serpent Is Rising, and 1975′s Man of Miracles. While the albums (as well as non-stop touring) helped the group build a substantial following locally, Styx failed to break through to the mainstream, until a track originally from their second album, “Lady” started to get substantial airplay in late ’74 on the Chicago radio station WLS-FM. The song was soon issued as a single nationwide, and quickly shot to number six on the singles chart, as Styx II was certified gold. By this time, however, the group had grown disenchanted with their record label, and opted to sign on with A&M for their fifth release overall, 1975′s Equinox. On the eve of the tour in support of the album, original guitarist John Curulewski abruptly left the band, and was replaced by Tommy Shaw. Shaw proved to be the missing piece of the puzzle for Styx, as most of their subsequent releases throughout the late ’70s earned at least platinum certification (1976′s Crystal Ball, 1977′s The Grand Illusion, 1978′s Pieces of Eight, and 1979′s Cornerstone), and spawned such hit singles and classic rock radio standards as “Come Sail Away,” “Renegade,” “Blue Collar Man” and “Fooling Yourself.”

The band decided that their first release of the ’80s would be a concept album, 1981′s Paradise Theater, which became Styx’s biggest hit of their career (selling over three million copies in a three-year period), as they became one of the U.S. top rock acts due to such big hit singles as “Too Much Time on My Hands”. It also marked the first time in history that a band released four consecutive triple-platinum albums.

Over the course of their illustrious career they’ve performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Throughout their career, they have had two Super-Bowl appearances, multiple Pollstar box office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Yes (to name a few), and no end in sight. STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.
