End of Innocence is the second official DVD release of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish. The DVD features numerous clips of the band performing livetracks, including a recording of the band performing one of their first songs; "Beauty and the Beast", with bassist Marco Hietala performing the male vocal part (in the past this part was performed by Tuomas Holopainen or Tony Kakko, from Sonata Arctica).
However, unlike most music DVDs, the main portion of the disc is dedicated to the End of Innocence Documentary (directed by Timo Halo), which involves a long interview with Tuomas Holopainen (Keyboards), Jukka Nevalainen (Drums) and Tapio Wilska (Guest musician and friend of the band, also ex-vocalist of Finntroll), as well as several short clips of the band performing, playing pranks on support bands, recording in the studio and generally having fun.
It also contained a short intro song called Kiteen Pallo, which can also be found on the Nightwish website.
The limited edition also includes a live CD, called Live at Summer Breeze 2002, which included the tracks "End of All Hope", "Dead to the World", "10th Man Down", "Slaying the Dreamer", "Over the Hills and Far Away", "Sleeping Sun", "The Kinslayer" and "Come Cover Me".
