NIGHTWISH Cancels Oslo Show Due To FLOOR JANSEN's Health

"Floor's pregnancy is totally unaffected, and she heads home for some much needed rest."


Nightwish has unfortunately had to cancel their June 22 show in Oslo, Norway due to vocalist Floor Jansen's health. Nightwish notes that Jansen's pregnancy is unaffected by her health issue, and that the band will begin rehearsing their new material soon. Still, we wish Jansen all the best at this time.

"Due to circumstances concerning Floor's health, we're unfortunately forced to cancel our show in Oslo on the 22nd of June. Floor's pregnancy is totally unaffected, and she heads home for some much needed rest.

"Even though all six of us are gutted over this decision, it was an easy one to make, as health must always come first. On a more positive note, the rehearsals and recordings of the new album begin in less than two weeks, so onwards!"

Nightwish has previously made it known that they'll be going on touring hiatus after their June shows, and that their new album is due out in 2024.

"As the Human :ll: Nature – World Tour is drawing to a close, we feel now is the time to tell you of our plans for the next phase in our journey," wrote the band at the time.

"After the planned shows for June 2023 we will be 'hanging up our spurs' for an indeterminate time, as far as live concert performances go, and won't be touring the next album. The reasons for this decision are personal, but, we all agree, vital to the wellbeing and future of the band. Be assured that we still love working together, and this decision has nothing to do with Floor's pregnancy or our other individual projects.

"However, an album of 12 new songs will see bright daylight in 2024, as will 3 music videos! The band is positively hyped beyond words over this new upcoming musical adventure. Stay tuned for updates from our legendary Nightwish band camp & studio this summer!"
