In Photos: Tarja w/ My Own Ghost – Academy 2, Manchester – 09/03/2017
Since leaving Nightwish in 2005, Tarja Turunen has been exceptionally busy. With four studio, three live and two classical albums released in that time, fans have not been left wanting for new material from the First Lady of symphonic metal. The most recent release is 2016’s The Shadow Self and in support of this widely acclaimed album, Tarja and her musical troupe are undertaking The Shadow Shows, a tour that will see them play venues across Europe, Russia, Indonesia and South America in the coming months.
John Gilleese found himself at the front of a packed Academy 2 in Manchester to capture the action. Support duties were handled by Luxembourg’s own operatic outfit My Own Ghost.
