Watch live video for Nightwish’s Shudder Before The Beautiful


Nightwish have released a video of their performance of Shudder Before The Beautiful.

The clip is taken from the band’s upcoming live Vehicle Of Spirit package which will feature the band’s performances from London’s Wembley Arena in the UK, along with their show at Tampere’s Ratina Stadion, Finland. It’ll launch on December 9.

Keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen says: “The title Vehicle Of Spirit came from a friend of Troy Donockley’s, who, after seeing our show a few years ago defined Nightwish as, ‘A vehicle of spirit that defies category.’

“That beautiful description has followed us ever since, and felt like a perfect match as the DVD title.”

Vehicle Of Spirit is available for pre-order from Nuclear Blast’s online store.

Last month, Nightwish singer Floor Jansen thanked fans for their well-wishes after revealing that she is expecting a baby with her partner Hannes Van Dahl.

The band have just wrapped up four dates in the Far East.
