Opeth announce trio of special performances

Opeth have announced three special performances to celebrate the upcoming release of their 12th studio album Sorceress and the recent release of their Deliverance & Damnation box set; dates after the jump. The shows will feature the band performing new material, fan favorites, and tracks from Deliverance & Damnation. Bandleader Mikael Åkerfeldt comments:

“We’re getting pumped up for the coming Sorceress world tour. We have 3 shows scheduled that are quite ‘out of the ordinary’ due to their legendary status and location. The SSE Wembley Arena in London/UK. Radio City Music Hall in New York/USA, and the famous Sydney Opera House/Australia. These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over 2 separate set lists. We’ll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The 2nd 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 3 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 tours. We very much hope to see you there!”

Sorceress drops on September 30th through Moderbolaget/Nuclear Blast.
