The First Tour of the Angels was a concert tour by Finnish symphonic power metal band Nightwish from December 31, 1997, to November 13, 1998. Nightwish played only 8 gigs since Jukka Nevalainen and Emppu Vuorinen were waylaid by their mandatory military draft and Tarja Turunen hadn't finished her studies. The male vocals in "Beauty and the Beast", "The Carpenter" and "Astral Romance" were sung by Tuomas Holopainen, beside Tarja. The band was supported by bassist Samppa Hirvonen and the keyboardist Marianna Pellinen during the tour; in 1998, Samppa was replaced by Sami Vänskä. There is a bootleg of the Helsinki gig called Live at The Tavastia.
