Opeth have just announced that they’ll be performing their entire 2005 album Ghost Reveries at the London Palladium on October 18, 2015. What’s the occasion? The 25th anniversary of being a band, and the 10th anniversary of the revered album.
Said Mikael Åkerfeldt on the official Opeth site:
“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!”
They’ll be playing two sets; one of the entire Ghost Reveries, and a second set spanning their 25 year career. Tickets will be available on Friday, November 14th at this link.
