Finnish symphonic metal outfit Nightwish have revealed the track listing and artwork for their hits-filled compilation titled Decades to coincide with a massive world tour which kicks off with 34 shows across North America beginning in March. The full track listing and artwork can be viewed below.

It was main songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen’s 1996 three-track demo that landed him a record deal with with Nightwish more than 20 years ago. Since then the band has played over 2,000 shows and sold more than eight million records cementing their status as the biggest European symphonic metal band.

Though the keyboardist has been there since Day 1, the group have cycled through an impressive list of vocalists without missing a step. Tarja Turunen fronted the band through 2005, with Anette Olzon picking up the baton and continuing their legacy through 2012 and Floor Jansen lending her powerful pipes while taking them up to modern day.

Decades, a two-disc compilation, comes out March 9, the same day that “Decades: World Tour 2018″ launches at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, Ga. The collection, via Nuclear Blast, will be available in a variety of configurations, including a two-disc jewel case, EarBook or Digipak and a three-LP set offered in three different colors. A digital version is also available. Pre-orders are being taken now and can be accessed here.

Following the 34 concerts in North America that run through March and April, the nine month long “Decades” tour will continue with dozens of European festival and headline shows. On the trek, Nighwish will also be presenting a special set list, featuring rare material from the early years of their career, while promising lots of cuts from deep in their catalog. The full slate of tour dates can be viewed here.
