Finnish symphonic prog metallers Nightwish have announce that they've had to postpone their European tour until May 2021.

"During these most peculiar and challenging times we've been forced to reschedule our shows, and that's now also the case with the European leg of the Human :II: Nature World tour," says Tuomas Holpianen. "Please check the new dates below.

"This is a most unfortunate, but necessary move in order ensure everyone's safety and make the best out of this bizarreness that all of you and us are going through. It's not for forever though, and The Caravan will soon be on the move again. Until then, take care of each other and see you all in the spring of 2021!"

The tour, with both fellow Finnish prog metallers Amorphis and Turmion Kätilöt in support was originally set for November 2020.
