Progressive metal fans of the UK (and beyond), rejoice! Opeth have announced they will return to British shores this November for the biggest headline show of their career thus far by taking to the stage at London’s world famous Wembley Arena. Just after a year on from their 25th anniversary show at London’s Drury Lane Theatre, which will go down as one of the band’s best ever shows, they’ll be back to do it again but this time on a much bigger scale. Opeth will play Wembley on the 19th of November 2016.
Opeth’s legendary frontman Mikael Akerfeldt once again shows his infamous sense of humour when dryly discussing one of the band’s biggest shows of their entire career thus far:
“We have played Wembley Arena once before supporting Dream Theater but to be back on our own, so to speak, is a daunting yet exciting task. London has always been kind to us ever since our very early overseas shows, and I have no doubt that this will be yet another overwhelming experience. This will be the biggest show we have ever done on our own and we will approach it with our 25 years as a band in our luggage. It will be memorable and fantastic I have no doubt. I hope you’ll be there to celebrate with us. A bunch of bums from Stockholm. Can’t believe we’re doing this. I’m nervous. Excited. Fucking hell! Opeth at Wembley Arena. Who would have thought?!”
