OPETH ANNOUNCE 25th ANNIVERSARY LONDON PALLADIUM SHOW & TICKET PRE-ORDER DETAILS!
Having played the prestigious Royal Albert Hall back in 2010, Opeth are now set to celebrate their landmark 25th Anniversary as a band with a very special event at the legendary London Palladium on 18th October 2015.
In true Palladium style, the special show, dubbed ‘An Evening with Opeth’, will feature two sets from the progressive Swedes, including 2005’s much-lauded ‘Ghost Reveries’ album in its entirety as it celebrates its 10th anniversary, plus a second set of classics from their 25-year career.
Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt is looking forward to the show, and says: “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 are available here, with a pre-sale set for 9am Thursday 13th.
A very limited amount of VIP upgrades, priced at £150, will also be available on pre-sale which allow early entry into the venue, a 20 minute ‘meet n’ greet’ with the band, a commemorative VIP laminate pass, a gift box containing 3 hand-engraved, show-exclusive Opeth red wine glasses (exclusive to VIPs of this show only), a tour poster printed on canvas (also exclusive to VIPs of this show only) and your choice of t-shirt from the merch booth. These are expected to sell out extremely quickly so be prepared to move fast if you want VIP upgrades.
Opeth are also set to appear as special guests at next year’s Bloodstock Festival in August.
