[News] Opeth announce “Evolution XXX ‘By Request’ Tour”

Swedish visionaries Opeth have come a long way over the past three decades and have evolved from a raw Death Metal to a Progressive and virtuosic vintage Rock. Never abandoning their path, the band has forged thirteen albums, each of which has become a milestone in its genre, and soon Mikael Åkerfeldt‘s band will celebrate its 30th anniversary. So Opeth get back on the road and announce a very special Evolution XXX ‘By Request’ tour in October 2021! For these eight exclusive shows, fans can vote which songs from the band’s long career they would like to hear.

The presale of tickets and voting will be open on Monday September 7, 2020 on: www.opeth.com

Mikael Åkerfeldt comments: “We are planning to celebrate a belated birthday of the band, also known as BBB. How can we celebrate such a thing, you ask? Well, getting to work. We are planning a very limited number of selected concerts in 2021, where the audience basically chooses the songs from the lineup. As we are celebrating 30 years we would love to play a song from every album we have made. All 13. If you can help us by choosing a song for each album from the list, we will simply play the songs with the most votes. It has already been done in the past, but not by us. I am reluctant and nervous, but also curious to see which songs you will choose. I can’t believe we’ve been around for thirty years, but here we are. So please help us. And be kind. The final lineup will have 13 songs. One for each album. To you…“.
