Opeth

Update from Mikael on his injury

Hi guys! I'm writing from beyond the grave. Seriously, I was not in a car crash and I haven't broken my arm. All that happened is I hit my head in mastodons tour bus as I was getting a new pair of (red) underwear out from my suitcase. Wish the story was more rock and roll, believe me. Anyways I split my head open down to the skullbone and had to be taken to the emergency. They gave me a bunch of shots in the wound, cleaned me up and stapled my head shut with 8 metal staples. Head is sore and if I smile it feels like the wound is gonna burst open again, but I'll be on stage by tomorrow again. I feel extremely disappointed that we couldn't play at the myth in Minneapolis, but paramedics told me I couldn't. We will reschedule the show for our next trip to the USA. So all rumors of me being in a car crash are false. I did crash my head into a car though, well...a bus really. Sorry for disappointing our fans in Minneapolis but I hope you understand. See you next time. Best. Mikael

"Heritage Hunter" Venue changes for Seattle and Minneapolis

The April 30th "Heritage Hunter" Seattle show has moved to a new venue. It will now take place at Showbox SoDo (moved from Paramount Theatre).

Due to the overwhelming demand for ticket sales, in addition to the recently reduced capacity at The Brick, the Mastodon/Opeth concert originally scheduled has been relocated to Myth in Maplewood, MN.  The concert will take place the same night, May 7, and all tickets from The Brick will be honored and valid for the performance at Myth.  Please present your AXS issued concert ticket at the doors the night of the show for admittance.

The concert will now be all ages and doors for the new venue will open at 7:30PM with a show start of 8:00PM.

A limited number of tickets for Mastodon/Opeth with special guest Ghost at Myth will be available beginning April 25 at 10am through Ticketmaster and the Myth Box Office.

Myth is located at 3090 Southlawn Drive, St. Paul, MN 55109
