Nightwish concert chronology

Decades: World Tour (also referred to as Decades: World Tour 2018) was the seventh world tour by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, in support of their seventh compilation album, Decades.[1]

The band included a special setlist for this tour, featuring rare songs from the earlier era to revisit with some new twists. The setlist was a 'one-off' and only performed on this tour.[1]

Both concerts in São Paulo and Buenos Aires were recorded for their upcoming sixth live DVD.[2]
