CAREER SPANNING PERFORMANCES SET FOR NEW YORK’S BEACON THEATER ON OCTOBER 22ND AND LOS ANGELES’ ORPHEUM THEATER ON OCTOBER 24TH; TICKETS ON SALE MAY 1ST
Roadrunner Records group Opeth have announced details of two very special U.S. performances celebrating the group’s landmark 25th Anniversary. The unique shows, dubbed ‘An Evening with Opeth,’ are set for October 22nd at New York’s Beacon Theater and October 24th at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theater and will see Opeth celebrating their remarkable career with two unique sets each night. The progressive Swedes will perform 2005’s much-lauded ‘Ghost Reveries‘ album in its entirety (which in turn is celebrating its 10th anniversary), plus a second set of classics from their 25-year career. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 1st at 10:00AM local time with VIP/Fan Club Presale beginning Wednesday, April 29th at 10:00AM local time. A very limited amount of VIP upgrades 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 selection of guitar plectrums from each guitarist, your choice of t-shirt from the merch booth, the official tour poster and a pair of Martin Axenrot signature drumsticks.

Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt commented on the special performances saying, “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.”
Opeth’s upcoming return to North America marks the group’s second tour of the states since the release of their critically acclaimed new album Pale Communion which staked its claim on numerous ‘Best of 2014’ lists. “The band plays with devilish abandon, the songwriting is masterful…” remarked DECIBEL on Pale Communion, while STEREOGUM exclaimed “…Pale Communion is an unusual and remarkable record…” and METAL SUCKS stated “…Pale Communion offers a great deal of progressive mastery…” Pale Communion is currently available in multiple configurations via both the Roadrunner Records Webstore and O Merch.
