"Made In Hong-Kong..." history:
Last November 2008, Nightwish announced the release of a new live EP, called "Made In Hong Kong (And In Various Other Places)". It was presented like a live CD+DVD from the "Dark Passion Play Tour", which began in September 2007 and ended in January 2009, and was followed be a tour called "European Déjà-Vu Tour" which closed promotion of their sixth album.

A long time ago, Tuomas said in an interview that if, one day, Nightwish would play in Hong Kong, they would release the show in a CD called "Made In Hong Kong", as a joke. It explains the title of this EP :)

The EP only contains songs from "Dark Passion Play", because the band doesn't want to look back and prefers to focus on the future. These live tracks are not the only contents on this release: there are also three bonus tracks, including an all-new one: the demo version of "Cadence Of Her Last Breath", sung by Marco Hietala. The DVD is quite interesting too, because it features a documentary about the tour, and the three videos from "Dark Passion Play" ("Amaranth", "Bye Bye Beautiful" and "The Islander").
