    • Former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen has scheduled the following shows in Novemebr/December:

      Nov. 25 - D - Berlin Columbia Club
      Nov. 29 - HU - Budapest Petöfi Hall
      Dec. 10 - D - Köln Live Music Hall
      Dec. 13 - NL - Amsterdam Melkweg
      Dec. 18 - CH - Zürich X-Tra

      Turunen has revealed the lineup of the backing band that will accompany her for the above-listed "warm-up concerts.". It will be as follows:

      Bass: Doug Wimbish
      Guitars: Alex Scholpp
      Drums: Mike Terrana
      Keys: Maria Ilmoniemi
      Cello: Max Silja and Markus Hohti
      Lead and back vocals, guitars, additional electronic drums and keyboards: Toni Turunen
      Lead vocals: Tarja Turunen

      Tarja Turunen's video for the song "I Walk Alone", can be viewed below. The clip was shot in Berlin, Germany with director Jörn Heitmann, who previously worked with NIGHTWISH on the "Sleeping Sun" clip in 2005. The "I Walk Alone" single will be released mid-October Universal Music, to be followed by a full-length CD, "My Winter Storm", on November 9.

      "My Winter Storm" is being produced by Daniel Presley (FAITH NO MORE, JEWEL, THE BREEDERS), who has been joined in the studio by a truly stellar line-up of musicians: Doug Wimbish on bass (LIVING COLOUR, ANNIE LENNOX, JOE SATRIANI, JEFF BECK, MADONNA, ROLLING STONES), Alex Scholpp on electric guitars (FARMER BOYS) and Earl Harvin on drums (SEAL, PET SHOP BOYS, AIR), a player personally selected by Tarja after she saw him stealing the show at a SEAL concert. Keyboards and programming, meanwhile, are being provided by Torsten Stenzel, whose previous credits include NELLY FURTADO, MOBY, TINA TURNER, VANESSA MAE and more.

      Released in 2004, the highly-acclaimed "Once" was Tarja's last studio outing with NIGHTWISH — an album that rose to the top of the charts around the world, from Mexico through to the European Billboard lists; the record picked up platinum awards in Germany and Finland, and turned gold right across Scandinavia, as well as in Brazil, Austria, Switzerland, Greece and Hungary.
