Nightwish have just announced plans for a North American tour this coming Fall. It’s been a while since the Finnish symphonic metal group has done extensive touring in the States, with the exception of a few U.S. dates here and there. So hearing that Nightwish will be performing more than a handful of shows, following the success of their latest album Imaginaerum, is exciting news indeed.

As if that wasn’t enough, power metal group Kamelot will be opening for the entire Fall trek. So take a moment to stop hyperventilating, then check out a rundown of dates announced so far after the jump. A special pre-sale for tour has already started online
