Nightwish‘s original vocalist Tarja Turunen yesterday afternoon wasn’t yet aware that the band has now lost also her subsequent singer. Iltasanomat contacted Tarja in Argentina and she commented on the news in brief.
- “I didn’t know about this at all and I am not interested either. Good luck to both parties”, Tarja said.
The split of Tarja Turunen and Nightwish, in October 2005, was a shock to many fans. The band members had given Tarja an open letter immediately after the show at Helsinki Hartwall Arena.
- “Maybe one day I’ll forgive, but I will never forget”, Turunen said at the press conference right after the shock letter. “The Letter shows that we were not friends. It was a dirty way to deal with this, even if i sensed the pain and malaise in the letter.”
