Swedish prog metal legends Opeth are set to release their new album Sorceress at the end of September. Not only this, the metal alchemists will also be releasing a box set of material from the Deliverance/Damnation records. In anticipation and celebration for these two releases, Opeth are embarking on an epic world tour to the 3 historic and iconic music venues including: Radio City Music Hall in New York, Wembley Arena in New York and Australia infamous Sydney Opera House. The band will be performing two very different sets, a contrast of old and new, commencing with material from their new album Sorceress and ending with tracks from the Deliverance/Damnation years.
This will be a tour to remember as the band journey to epic landmarks of the music venue world. Here are 3 reasons why we don’t want to miss Opeth’s upcoming tour.
- Paying attention to the material that the band will be playing, it is hard to say you wont enjoy at least one set, you have the best of both worlds. A mixture of both old and new material is a great balance for a tour and it means old favourites will still be heard.
- Concentrating on the venue aspect, how atmospheric will these shows be…Answer = Very. Musically historical venues and you as a crowd member can make that history come to life at what would be a great show
- Think of the community you will have at each venue, all massive venues and only 3 dates. Alot of people from alot of places, a true gathering of fans.
