I'm very happy to announce that following the release of my new solo album "Grace For Drowning" in September, I will be undertaking my first ever solo tour of Europe and North America. For this tour I am very fortunate to have the talents of an extraordinary line up of musicians to perform the music - Marco Minnemann on drums, Nick Beggs on bass, Aziz Ibrahim on guitar, Gary Husband on keyboards, and Theo Travis on flute / sax. And myself (not extraordinary) on vocals, guitars and keyboards. The shows will also include a lot of multimedia and films, material that is being especially prepared by Lasse Hoile as we speak. The music will be drawn from both my solo albums (the newest of which is a double CD, so there is plenty of material to choose from), but please do not come along and shout out for PT songs! The dates will be announced in the next 24 hours or so at www.gracefordrowning.com, but run approximately from mid October to mid November. Please come along if you can, I think these shows are going to be quite an adventure.

That's a killer lineup BTW. I'd love to see some Insurgentes tracks played live and he's probably going to release a DVD of this tour.

Looking forward to hearing Grace For Drowning when it is released. Unfortunately, too far away to attend the concerts!

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

You can at least travel to Poland or Germany. Wink

In my case I would have to travel about 8.000 kilometers.

And, as always, no love for the Southern Hemisphere. Unhappy

God so many people are going to the Orlando House of Blues. Opeth and Wilson here, hmm.

It's a great small venue where i saw Porcupine Tree for the first time.

Idk which i'd like to go to more - seeing Opeth playing Heritage, Damnation or other growless material (That what the tour is apparently made up of) would a awesome show!

Aziz Ibrahim, the guitarist in the band, was denied the work visa by the US. ErmmFortunately, he will be replaced by John Wesley.
