Opeth to Tour North America w/ In Flames and Red Fang
Here’s another big tour announcement. Will you be let down yet again?
This is quite a conundrum for me. I like Opeth. I don’t care for In Flames. Assuming Opeth is playing last, I’d normally just arrive fashionably late just in time for their set, but if I did that here, I’d miss out on Red Fang. Missing out on Red Fang is not party.
I know what some of you are saying: “Grumble, grumble, complain, complain, I don’t like Opeth’s new shit.” Well, guess what? They play their old music live, you nerd.
Here’s what Mikael Åkerfeldt has to say about the tour:
“We are delighted to return to North America to tour our latest album, Pale Communion. This will be the first of two North American tours and the fact that we are teaming up with our old friends In Flames for this co-headline tour means that we can get to play some large venues and present our new stage show. I am also looking forward to drinking expensive whiskey with Anders on his account!”
Whatever, man. Just play “Reverie/Harlequin Forest.”
