Video footage of the unboxing of the mediabook version of “Act I”, the first-ever live solo album from former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen, can be seen below. The effort will be unleashed to North American fans on September 4 in 2-CD, 2-DVD and Blu-ray format via the Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records, in conjunction with Hamburg, Germany-based earMUSIC.
The first-ever live audio/video offering from the former NIGHTWISH soprano, “Act I” is a mammoth undertaking recorded and filmed with 10 HD cameras at the breathtaking Teatro El Círculo in Rosario, Argentina in March 2012. With an elaborate track listing of solo tunes, NIGHTWISH classics and various covers, including a rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s “The Phantom Of The Opera”, Gary Moore‘s “Over The Hills And Far Away”, WHITESNAKE‘s “Still Of The Night” and a variety of video extras, “Act I” provides a full-fledged bill of fare to every diehard Tarja fan.
