Live Preview: Opeth
Twenty-five years and still going strong – but an upcoming Opeth show “could be a mess”.
Mikael Åkerfeldt on the Swedish prog group’s 25th-anniversary celebrations, which include an unlikely show at the London Palladium.
Opeth recently appeared at Bloodstock, a festival that probably seems better suited to the band’s older, heavier identity. How did it go?
We just do the show and have a beer, but it was good. One day we can play at a death metal festival, the next day we can share a stage with the Pet Shop Boys. We’re flexible.
