Katatonia has announced several special 20th anniversary North American shows, in celebration of two decades of gloom and doom from the world-renowned progressive metal titan, says a press release.
The headlining “Last Fair Day Gone Night 2011” performances will take place in the United States and Canada while the band is in North America for the upcoming “Heritage Tour” with fellow Swedish metal act Opeth.
Those dates…after the jump.
“Both you and we know that North America damn well deserves to see more of Katatonia, right?,” asks guitarist Anders Nyström in a statement. “So how could we possibly resist heading back to the States this fall when Opeth are giving us the opportunity to be their special guests?
“It was just a matter of time before it had to happen again,” he continued. “Yes we toured together in the same formation ten years ago in Europe, and not only was that tour very well received by both bands’ fans, but we also shared a great ride together as long time friends. Some people have even been calling this bill their ‘dream line-up’, so it’s only fair that the loyal fans in North America now get their piece of the cake too! So come out and see us on this great tour and remember we’re playing headlining sideshows as well! Looking forward! Cheers!”
