Opeth Announce Special 'Sorceress' Shows


(Prog) Opeth have lined up three landmark shows in support of upcoming 12th album Sorceress. The follow-up to 2014's Pale Communion arrives on September 30, with frontman Mikael Akerfeldt revealing the record was inspired by "the negative apects of love."

Now they've announced they'll perform special shows at New York's Radio City Music Hall on October 1, London's Wembley Arena on November 19 and Sydney's Opera House on February 6, 2017.

Akerfeldt says: "We're getting pumped up for the coming Sorceress world tour. We have three shows scheduled that are quite out of the ordinary due to their legendary status and location.

"These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over two separate set lists. We'll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The second set will consist of songs exclusively from the Deliverance and Damnation records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label."
