Tarja´s message from her official blog:
Nitra, Slovakia was something particular. We spent 3 days in a cosy hotel doing absolutely nothing important, since the Slovakian shows got cancelled just in the last minute. It was a really big misfortune for me and I didn't expect that at all to happen. I really hope to be able to return to Slovakia and to sing for my lovely fans. We are working on that and I hope to have news soon about it. You were the ones that made me really happy when I met some of you at the Christmas Market in Nitra. Even though it was a very cold day, I was surprised how many of you got my message and was there! Facebook has remarkable powers! Anyway, I ask you my deepest apologizes for not performing this time.
Luckily I had a lot of time to walk around the city of Nitra.
