Progressive metal maestros OPETH have revealed details surrounding their highly anticipated performance at Wembley Arena in November!
With the new record, Sorceress, set for release at the end of September, OPETH have revealed details surrounding their upcoming performance at Wembley Arena in November, one of three shows (Radio City Music Hall in New York on 1st October, Wembley Arena in London on 19th November and the Opera House in Sydney on 6th February 2017) in support of the new record.
The performances will showcase the band performing two sets, one from their forthcoming album, Sorceress together with fan favourites from their back catalogue, then a second set featuring material from Deliverance & Damnation. Speaking about the shows, frontman/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt 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 – Wembley Arena in London/UK, Radio City Music Hall in New York/USA and the famous Opera House in Sydney, Australia. 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/Damnation records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label. So it’s a little bit of a celebration indeed! We’ll only play this set list three times on the whole world tour, so if you miss it, you’ll have missed it. Of course, all other shows will be treated with the same amount of respect and we’ll chisel out a nice diverse set list spanning over our entire career for every single show during the tour. We very much hope to see you there!”
OPETH perform at Wembley Arena in London on November 19th. Tickets are available here.
Sorceress is set for release on September 30th via Moderbolaget Records/Nuclear Blast Records.
