I wish I could attend this.
Opeth will celebrate their impending 25th anniversary as a band with a special set at the London Palladium in London, England, on October 18 of next year.
During the show, the band will perform 2005’s Ghost Reveries, which is turning 10.
A second set of various fan favorites will follow.
Says band frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt:
“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 will go on sale Friday.
