The Silent Force Tour was a concert tour by Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation in support of their third album, The Silent Force.

Background[edit]

Within Temptation's third album, The Silent Force, was released on 15 November 2004. The album was an instant #1[1] in the Netherlands and charted well in many European countries. In support of the release they embarked on another large international tour in 2005, with dates across Europe (including their first festival appearance in the United Kingdom headlining Bloodstock) and a one-off show in Dubai. A special concert at the Java Island, Netherlands, was recorded and released as a DVD, entitled The Silent Force Tour. The concert included special guests, as old Within Temptation members in some songs.[2]
