(Classic Rock) Singer Anette Olzon has split with Nightwish in a spirit of "mutual understanding," the band says. The move follows an online rant where she criticised the Finnish band for performing a show without her at the weekend.
She missed the Nightwish show in Denver, Colorado and was temporarily replaced by support band Kamelot's backing singers Elize Ryd and Alissa White-Gluz.
Olzon told fans she'd been admitted to hospital with suspected stress complications, during which doctors discovered a cyst in her liver which would require further treatment. more on this story
