OPETH - announce Evolution XXX 'By Request' tour!

OPETH - announce tour! - 2020-09-04

2020-09-04 - Swedish visionaries OPETH have come a long way within the past 3 decades and evolved from raw death metal to virtuosic progressive vintage rock. Always following their own path, the band forged 13 albums, each a new milestone within its genre and soon, the band centered around Mikael Åkerfeldt will be celebrating its 30th anniversary.
So of course the time has come to hit the road again and today, OPETH announce their very special Evolution XXX 'By Request' tour for October 2021 - for these 8 exclusive shows, fans can vote for which songs they would like to hear from the band's long career.
The voting will start on Monday, September 7th at Opeth.com.

Mastermind Mikael Åkerfeldt comments on this special occasion:
”So, we’re planning to celebrate a belated band-birthday, also known as BBB. How do we celebrate a thing like this, you ask? Well, we go to work. We are planning a very few select shows in 2021 where you basically have the collective choice of picking the songs for the setlist. Since we'll be celebrating 30 years we would love to play a song from each album we’ve done. All 13 of them. If you can help us and pick your choice of one song per album from the list, and then we’ll simply play the songs with the most votes. It’s been done before, but not by us. I am reluctant and nervous, but also excited to see what songs you will choose. I can’t really believe we’ve been around for 30 years, but there you go. So please help us. And be gentle. The final setlist will have 13 songs. One from each album. Your call….”
