Live review: Opeth
Venue: London Theatre Royal
Swanky surrounds for the progressive Swedes’ 25th bash.
Originally booked for the Palladium, tonight’s audience with Opeth was forced to move due to production issues. The grand stage is overlooked by three screens, projecting myriad hypnotic visuals – from playing cards to heart monitors – and a dozen candelabra light the room like a demonic mass, with Mikael Åkerfeldt acting as preacher.
