Tuomas Holopainen – solo album went gold in Finland!
05.06.2014
Tuomas Holopainen’s solo album »Music Inspired By The Life And Times Of Scrooge« debuted as # 1 in Finland on the release week and stayed in TOP 5 for several weeks after the release. Now, two months after the release date the album went GOLD in Finland.
Tuomas comments: "This is really unbelievable and a great day for Scrooge. I want to thank everybody for their great support for my "little solo project"."

Recording the album had been a distant dream for Tuomas Holopainen for over 14 years. And it really went out with a bang: Tuomas got Don Rosa himself involved to the album artwork and also to participate for the first promo video.
