Opeth

25th Anniversary Concert announced

OPETH are set to celebrate their landmark 25th Anniversary as a band next year with a very special event at the legendary London Palladium on 18th October 2015.  After being the heaviest band to play the Royal Albert Hall (in 2010), they will no doubt be the heaviest band to also play the Palladium.

 

The unique show, dubbed 'An Evening with OPETH' will feature two sets from the progressive Swedes, including 2005's much-lauded 'Ghost Reveries' album in its entirety (which in turn is celebrating its 10th anniversary), plus a second set of classics from their 25-year career.  

Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt is looking forward to the show, informing us; "The forces that be put up a very mystical and subtle little advert on the so called internet.  Yes, we will celebrate 25 years of being Opeth in 2015 and this is reason enough to gather up the forces and play.  For you.  At the Palladium in London.  Not sure if they have a dress-code there, as it is a posh little place.  Do we care?  No we don’t. It will be a pretty unique evening I reckon, hopefully free of technical difficulties. No thanks to Baal!  With that said, we are a live band in the true sense of the word and you can never be certain.  Regardless it will be a blast and I strongly advise you to think about attending. But don’t think for too long.  It might cost you your seat!  We’re currently on tour (Hey! Thanks European progrockdeathmetalheads!  You are absolutely fantastic and we love you!) and I’m being called for, so gotta dash. Ta-ta!"

Tickets go on general sale at 9am this Friday 14th November and will be available from http://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/opeth-tickets, with a pre-sale set for 9am Thursday 13th.  A very limited amount of VIP upgrades, priced at £150 will also be available on pre-sale which allow early entry into the venue, a 20 minute 'meet n' greet' with the band, a commemorative VIP laminate pass, a gift box containing 3 hand engraved, show-exclusive Opeth red wine glasses (exclusive to VIPs of this show only), a tour poster printed on canvas (also exclusive to VIPs of this show only) and your choice of t-shirt from the merch booth.  These are expected to sell out extremely quickly so be prepared to move fast if you want VIP upgrades.

 

OPETH are also set to appear as special guests at next year's Bloodstock Festival in August.  Details from www.bloodstock.uk.com
