Progressive rock titans, Opeth, have announced that they will be returning to the far-off shores of Australia in support of their recent album, Pale Communion (read our review here). It is rumored that the band will be playing a large catalogue of material that will cater to both the pre-Watershed fans, as well as those who fell in love with the band’s softer side. If Opeth’s last Australian tour is anything to go by, you can probably expect to hear classics like ‘Deliverance’ and ‘Watershed’, extended drum solos and perhaps even some acoustic renditions of songs from My Arms, Your Hearse.
The band will be heading down under in May, playing all but five dates in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth. Tickets are slated to go on sale at 9am on the 6th of March (AEDT) and will undoubtedly sell out. VIP tickets are available, but will set you back roughly $200 as opposed to the regular seated tickets at $80, both of which can be purchased here.
