In a recent interview with Kerrang! magazine, Tarja Turunen ruled out any reunion possibilities with Nightwish. Talking about the incident where Marko Hietala went on stage with her in 2017 at a concert in Finland she commented: “I know a lot of fans would love to see something happen, but it’s a very long distance away… Personally, I don’t see anything happening with me and them, to be perfectly honest. Marco came a little later into the band; he wasn’t there since the beginning. He was always a guy I was close to. Me and Tuomas Holopainen, however, haven’t seen each other in a long time… but we have been in touch. It’s not bad. The past is what it is; we can’t change that. We can only change the future.”
