NIGHTWISH Once – Circa 2004/5 UK black cotton short sleeved t-shirt featuring the album artwork printed on the front, with ‘Beauty Comes With Dark Thoughts’ printed across the back. This would have been official merchandise, purchased & worn at one of the bands shows during the tour & shows just a little light wear with a very small hole at the neck on the back, however what makes this example that little bit more special is the fact it has been fully signed by Tarja Turunen, Tuomas Holopainen, Emppu Vuorinen, Marco Hietala and Jukka Nevalainen across the printed area on the front in a black marker pen, Tarja left the band not long after in 2006 to pursue a solo career. Obviously not one to be worn but would be ideal to have framed & displayed, and as a bonus we are including a copy of the ‘Strictly Limited Gold-Award-Edition’ of the Once album which has been mounted on a backing card ready to be framed.
