Anybody know if this is the DVD for the concert? It's $32.53, and on the product details it says it brings 4 discs.

I think the one for 32 is bluray/ cd because its more money, the one for 28 dollars is dvd/cd. I saw one for 18 dollars that said 2 disc's, so that obviously only the cd's.

On the Amazon.UK site

Both the Amazon.UK site and the Amazon USA site have the same number ASIN: B00FPM19UI. On the Amazon.UK site this is listed as Showtime, Storytime (Bonus Blu-ray) [CD+Blu-ray, Limited Edition, Box set] with the number of disc at 4. So I would assume it's the 2 blu ray and 2 cd version.

Oh, and by the way, I have contacted, who is linked on Nightwish's website about the region of the Blu ray's. They will be region free, so they will play on any blu ray player, no matter what country you live in.

Here is the link to Nightwish products, including all the versions of Showtime, Storytime, at Mad Supply

PS...sorry about the links, you'll have to copy and paste them as Amazon appears to not let you just click on the link.

Update : Today Oct.14, 2013 Amazon ( both USA & UK ) added another picture. It shows the blu ray box with 2 blu rays and 2 cd's, so this will defiantly be the 4 disc ( 2 blu + 2 cd ) blu ray box set, and NOT the 4 disc standard dvd+cd box set.

Sleepwalker....yes, from what I know, what you have posted is correct. The blu ray edition is pictured in your blu ray/cd link, and the dvd edition is posted in your dvd/cd link.

I checked on the Nightwish site and the DVD's they offered there they were PAL format for Europe only. Anybody know if the DVD's on here on for US format?

I assume that you're asking about regular dvd's and not blu ray, correct? If that is the case, regular dvd's, then I would assume since Showtime, Storytime is being sold here on Amazon in the USA, then they would be region A, which includes the USA and will play in your dvd player.

Now, if you're talking blu ray, then I was told that all blu ray editions will be region free, meaning that they will play on any blu ray player in the world. Below is the reply I received when I contacted Mad Supply who is in Findland. They were the link from Nightwishes site.


Blu-Rays are region free versions.

Best wishes from Finland,

Why not just a blu ray version without the CDs? Jacking up my price in the USA

Geddy Peart,
I have not seen a blu ray only version. But I have seen a standard 2 disc dvd only version that sells for 21.50 Euros which is approximately $29.15 US dollars. The price of this 2 disc blu ray + 2 disc cd edition has dropped almost daily since I ordered it on Oct. 30th for $29.98. Currently as of Nov.23rd it is $24.73. It originally listed for $32.53.

Personally I think $24.73 for this set is a very good price considering you get 2 blu rays and 2 cd's. For various artists a 2 disc cd only set usually goes for $18.99 and up for the physical disc, not a digital download as on iTunes or Amazon. A digital download of Nightwish's Showtime,Storytime on iTunes for just the 16 track cd version is $9.99. Currently iTunes does not have a listing for a dvd or blu ray version, but you never know.

Here is the link for the dvd only version

The lower left sticker that says "FSK KB6 Freigegeben" is not a region 6 coding. In fact, there is only region A, B or C coding for blu ray.

What "FSK KB6 freigegeben" is, is a movie rating system in Germany. The Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft (FSK, Voluntary Self Regulation of the Movie Industry) is a German motion picture rating system organization run by the Spitzenorganisation der Filmwirtschaft. Basically it's like G, PG, PG-13, R and XXX like we have here in the USA.

So, don't worry or let it bug you. The blu ray and standard dvd editions of Showtime, Storytime are all region free, so that they will play in any player, in any country.

Thank you so much for responding! I feel so much better haha. I felt like if I had some weight on my shoulders. Now I can buy with confidence. :)

To the best of my knowledge, 4 discs include 2 CDs of the concert, 1 DVD disc of the concert and 1 DVD documentary (90+ minutes)

I was given the 2-DVD/2 CD version as a gift for X-mas. My brother bought it from madsupply off the Nightwish shop, and it will not play in normal DVD players, as it says region 0 on the back. It will play in a computer, but not in my DVD player, and not in my PS3.

So sorry to hear of your problems playing the dvd's. They are regular dvd's and NOT blu ray, correct ? I know that the blu rays are all supposed to be region free according to Tuuli
from Madsupply. I had contacted them back in early October to find out about the region coding, and Tuuli told me all blu ray's would be region free. I did not ask about standatd dvd's as I was not interested in that version.

Read my posting from October 26th in this forum. It has the e-mail address for Madhouse. Contact them to see if in fact, standard dvd's are region coded. If they are region coded, maybe they would send you a copy for your country, USA ?

Lastly, I know you mentioned that it won't play in your PS3. What dvd player are you using ? I'm not sure on the PS3, but many regular dvd players can be made region free with a firmware type mod that you can download from the net. Just Google your brand and model for region free mod. I made my Oppo BDP-83 blu ray player and Oppo BDP-103 blu ray player into region free players with a chip modification. Good luck and keep us posted.

Thank you for the info!! I was looking fw for some one to confirm if these BR's were region free or limited.

You're welcome. I highly recommend Showtime Storytime, both the Blu-ray and the cd. Outstanding, and again, the Blu-ray is region free. But I do not know about the standard dvd if it's region free or not as I don't have that version. My guess that the standard dvd is region free since the Blu-ray is.

I have the dvd and it's region free.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 9, 2015 12:17:52 AM PDT
He's getting it mixed up. Region free had nothing to do w/PAL or NTSC. NTSC is the standard picture format for N. America, & Japan. PAL is Europe, U.K., Scandinavia, & I forgot where else. NTSC has fewer lines of resolution than PAL does. PAL titles will ONLY play on DVD/BR players which support it or both formats. I have read though that this doesn't affect BR's, though. I don't know if that is true or not. Research it. If it is true, it could be because w/HD, maybe it's 1920X1080 all over the world, unlike w/DVD....? I don't know. It id incredibly frustrating for sure. Check the manual for you player, or look it up online, the brand & model $ to see if it will play PAL too. My BR player I just bought from, will play PAL Discs, even though the manual says otherwise. I bought this model specifically because it was the only model Sony's site listed as one that would play PAL, & just like my old LG which no longer works now, plays PAL discs. In case anyone's looking to get s new BR player, & 1 that will play PAL, it's a Sony BDP-S7200 model. It also plays DVD-A which the manual also claims it will not.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 9, 2015 12:22:29 AM PDT
It is likely PAL! R code has nothing to do w/NTSC/PAL. Read my other post about that in this thread.
