Opeth live review - Wembley Arena, London
Venue: Wembley Arena, London
Opeth head to London to celebrate their newest endeavour, plus take a plunge into the past
If Wembley Arena inspires thoughts of Simply Red gigs and overpriced lager, that’s probably because it’s true – the ginger crooner is playing a week after this gig, and the beer still requires a small loan. However, for one bitter, sodden autumn evening, this auditorium is housing a sublime bill that questions if Mr O2 is a secret progger. For the two acts embarking on this audacious event, it’s kind of a big deal, even if the stage, as Mikael Åkerfeldt bravely alludes to later, is pushed forward, cutting the arena into half its size.
