Opeth to play Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm

February 24 2012
Opeth has been invited to play the legendary main stage at the famed Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm. The show will take place on the 14th of September and will be the final performance before they close down for the Autumn/Winter season. Opeth will be prog/psych/metal rocking out on the same stage where artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Abba, Tina Turner, Elton John, Kiss, Beach boys, Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, The Who and Janis Joplin's delivered some classic performances. Not bad company at all. This will be one of the very biggest achievements for the band to date.

Opeth/Mikael comments: "Tremendous honour for us! Unbelievable. You can't book a stage like this as they are based on being invited to play. I've been there a million times throughout my life, mainly just getting sick in some rollercoaster. Never did I think that my little band would be on that fucking stage. So humbled by this. I rarely get worked up for anything, but I am actually excited about this. I think it will be a magic night. We'll do our best to make it so anyways"
