NIGHTWISH Performs ‘The Phantom Of The Opera’ Live For The First Time In 17 Years (Video)

Nightwish The Phantom of the Opera live 2023

It’s here! After 17 years, NIGHTWISH has finally performed “The Phantom Of The Opera” live with Henk Poort joining the band on stage. It’s the first time both Floor Jansen and Henk Poort have performed together, and the wait of three years due to Covid has made this moment even more historic!

Last year, NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen had surgery to remove a tumor after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She revealed that the surgery was successful and she is now cancer free.

On November 18th, Floor took to her social media to write: “Great news! I am cancer free. The surgery took everything cancerous out and it hasn’t spread! I’ll get local radiation therapy in February to make sure everything stays out.

“I’m getting my energy back after the surgery and feel a huge relief to know it was successful! I’m not back to a 100% but I have no doubt the shows will give me the power push I need to rock with all of you on the upcoming European tour.

“Thank you for your amazing support and well wishes”.
