Opeth announce 25th anniversary show

Opeth Anniversary Show

Opeth are to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a band by playing a special live show in London.

Dubbed An Evening With Opeth, the band will be playing two sets at London’s Palladium on the 18th of October. One set will be the band’s Ghost Reveries album played in its entirety, and the other a selection of songs from across the rest of the band’s back catalogue.

Says Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt: “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!”
