    Former Nightwish singer Tarja has announced the 2023 “Living the Dream” US Tour.

    Dates kick off June 14th in Philadelphia and run through June 30th in Berkeley, California. Armored Dawn will provide support.

    A Live Nation pre-sale begins Wednesday (February 1st) at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster using the code CHORUS, while general ticket sales begin Friday (February 3rd). Fans can also purchase tickets via StubHub.

    The tour will be in support of Tarja’s most recent collection, Best of: Living the Dream, which arrived in December. The compilation culls songs from the Finnish singer’s solo career, including her most well-known tracks, her personal favorites, as well as the new single “Eye of the Storm.”


    Tarja fronted Nightwish from 1996 through 2006 before concentrating on her solo career. During that span, she sang on the band’s classic albums, including 1998’s Oceanborn and 2004’s Once.
