Tarja Turunen trails Luna Park Ride

Former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen will release Luna Park Ride on May 29, she’s announced.

The performance was recorded by fans in Buenos Aires in March 2011 – and she’s issued a trailer for the live package which will launch on 2CD, 2LP, DVD, Blu-ray and on digital formats via earMusic.

A statement reads: “Imagine an enchanted audience in front of an enormous stage in Argentina. Thousands of fans screaming just for her. Having their cameras and cell phones ready to film what will become one hell of a performance, Tarja finally appears. Let the show begin.”

Along with the 15-track performance, the CD, DVD and Blu-ray editions come bundled with over 70 minutes of bonus material taken from her live gigs between 2010 - 2014, including her appearance at last year’s Summer Breeze festival in Germany.

Last year Turunen revealed she had no interest in listening to Nightwish and aside from snippets on the radio, hadn’t heard anything from her old band since being sacked in 2005.

Her last studio release was 2013’s Colours In The Dark.
