OPETH Set For Ghost Reveries World Tour

In support of their recently released new album, Ghost Reveries, OPETH is set to embark on the North American leg of the Ghost Reveries World Tour. The outing begins on October 9th in Phoenix, Arizona and will run through North America through mid-November 2005. Supporting the band directly on this run will be PELICAN (through Oct 22nd) then NEVERMORE (beginning the 24th). Openers FIREBALL MINISTRY (through Oct 30) then INTO ETERNITY (beginning the 31st) have recently been added to the bill.

With notoriously lengthy songs (many surpassing the eight-minute mark) the band are just hitting their stride after about 30 minutes playing music, about the length of their sets on the summer of 2005’s Sounds Of The Underground Tour. “After only being able to play 3 or 4 songs on Sounds Of The Underground, it will be great to have the freedom to do a 90-minute set encompassing our wide repertoire,” says vocalist Mikael Akerfeldt of the band’s extended stage time on this outing.

Fans will be able to purchase a limited supply of advance tickets for these dates at a reduced rate here: http://tixx1.artistarena.com/opeth. The first 13 groups of 4 who purchase tickets online in each market will receive after show passes to meet the band.
