Opeth will do a number of concerts to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
They will be playing the entire Blackwater Park followed by a big selection from the other albums!

6 gigs are planned around the Easter weekend: Stockholm, Essen, Paris, London, NYC and LA.
It's almost sold out so hurry up. I'll be at the London gig!

I agree; no Chicago = LAME. However, since Blackwater park is a phenomenal album, I am excited about whatever live releases may result from this extra pretentious 20th anniversary trendy-city-exclusive mini-tour.

Yes it's a bit exclusive...
Especially since they will spend the best of the coming 3 months rehearsing, I would expect them to capitalize on it a bit more, but I guess they didn't want to get too involved in touring. Lazy bums!

If I were you I'd buy the tickets as fast as I can, and if I couldn't go after all, sell them to someone else Smile

The Stockholm show was pretty tempting, but I decided to pass. I'm sure I'll regret at some point.

Stockholm is the closest to where I live but still 521.68 kilometers from Copenhagen so I´ll pass too. Too bad they didn´t chose Malmö instead ( saw Opeth there about a year ago)

Well we're freaks. We saw them twice last year, once in Brussels and another time in NYC on our honeymoon. Romantic Smile
Now we'll see them on a London trip which we were planning for anyway.

Stockholm, Sweden sounds just fine by me! LOL
Too bad that they chose Cirkus as their arena. I've seen them recently during the Prog Nation 2009 tour when the band played at Hovet. It was a really nice surprise to hear them perform White ClusterClap

I'm just wondering though. I've never been to the Royal Albert Hall in London before. (From Belgium you see)
My tickets have a row and seat number. If we're actually gonna be seated it's gonna be a pretty weird Opeth gig. Confused Does anybody know for sure if it's gonna be standing or seated?
