There has been some discussions over the English NW forum whether Anette will be on the DVD or not. Naturally this issue really interests people, so we thought we should ask around a bit. The following text is copy/pasted from mojo's post on NWforum, as we thought people here too must know about this.


To avoid more false rumors/speculations about the upcoming DVD and the documentary we asked the man who is responsible for it, Ville Lipiäinen. With his permission we’re going to put his statement right here. Our question was as simple as it can get: Will Anette be part of the documentary?

Hello everyone,

We began shooting the Nightwish Imaginaerum - world tour documentary in January 2012. The shootings continued all the way until August 2013, so we ended up having tons of material from the tour. The material included, among other things, concerts, rehearsals and interviews from all the members of the band. The editing process of the documentary started already in early 2012.

However, in the beginning of March 2013 we received a message insisting that no visuals (moving or still) nor any audio featuring Anette Olzon can be used on the dvd, this being her personal request.

This meant that we had to go back to the very beginning of the editing process. We respect her wish, and that`s why Anette will unfortunately not be seen or heard on the "Showtime, Storytime" - dvd.

Ville Lipiäinen

- Director



Big thanks to Ville for this! Of course, we asked around a bit more and we learned this:

Anette’s decision was out of the bands control believe it or not, the band wanted her to be a part of this documentary because she was an important part of Nightwish for quite some years and nobody wanted her to be cut out and forgotten like that. Not at all! It was never the bands intension. It was her decision alone and of course she has all the right to ask for it. Also, there are no negative feelings from the band towards her decision. They all respected her wishes about this matter and they told her it’s fine. From this point everybody moved on.

Maybe now we can stop blaming members of the band for something that became a process with its own dynamic because of false rumors or what was said/posted somewhere over the internet.

It's SO pity for me that Anette won't be the part of the upcoming documentary! But of course...it's her personal decision and I respect it, as I like her so much!

Really thank you for information!
But anyway I will be waiting for a new DVD.

Thanks Dandelion, for sharing the info.

It's sad that she won't be in the DVD but it's her wish and it must be respected

Guess I already have a Christmas gift

Really looking forward for the DVD. In my opinion the title is great but the artwork... Well it's fine It's a pity that Anette is not in it but it's her own decision so can't complain!

Good setlist and happy to have GLS & IWMTB videos on the DVD as well.

When I first saw the cover I thought of the sweep over cinematic shot of the battle of Morder between Elves/Men and orcs I think it is just the coloring and masses of people though. Definitely adding this to my birthday wishlist...I'm looking forwards to that recording of GLS being on the dvd.

This is much more epic than men and elves vs orcs. I prefer Nightwish DVDs over Lord of the Rings. Bit more than two months till release.

Damn, don't you just hate it when your finger accidentally slips and hits the "Buy now" button!
