The Gentle Storm Exclusive Tour CD is a cover EP and the 1st release of the Dutch heavy metal/folk band The Gentle Storm. It is entirely acoustic, and features only bandleaders Arjen Anthony Lucassen and Anneke van Giersbergen, and drummer Rob Snijders.

The EP could initially only be bought at shows during the small acoustic tour preceding the release of The Diary in February 2015, but was made available through Lucassen and van Giersbergen's websites from April of the same year. It does not feature any songs from The Diary, instead consisting of five cover songs, including some from Lucassen's other project Ayreon, all three of which were already originally featuring van Giersbergen

The Gentle Storm is a Dutch musical project by singer and lyricist Anneke van Giersbergen and composer and musician Arjen Anthony Lucassen, founder and leader of other musical projects such as Star One, Ayreon, Guilt Machine and Ambeon. The duo has previously collaborated in Ayreon albums Into the Electric Castle and 01011001.
