Opeth Set To Celebrate 25th Anniversary By Performing ‘Ghost Reveries’ In Full At The London Palladium

Opeth are set to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a band next year by performing a special one off concert in London next year.  After performing ‘Blackwater Park‘ in full back in 2010 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which is more traditionally known for holding the BBC Proms, Opeth plan to follow suit by performing at the London Palladium in the UK.  The show is set to consist of two sets by the band.  The first will be ‘Ghost Reveries‘ played in full, followed by a second set consisting of a selection of songs spanning the career of the band.

Vocalist and Guitarist, Mikael Åkerfeldt posted the following statement on the official Opeth Facebook page;

‘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 go on general sale at 9am this Friday 14th November and will be available from http://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/opeth-tickets, with a pre-sale set for 9am Thursday 13th.
