Opeth Go Behind The Scenes Of Historic Gig


(Prog) Opeth have shared a behind-the-scenes promo for their biggest ever UK headline show at London's SSE Wembley Arena. The video shows the Swedish band sound-checking, meeting fans backstage and receiving plaques from venue bosses to mark their milestone performance last month.

But Akerfeldt said last week that "The new songs go down really well." Read more and watch the video here.
