Opeth – ‘Pale Communion’ Australian Tour – May 2015

opethSwedish progressive metal heroes Opeth are set to return to Australia in 2015 in support of their 11th album ‘Pale Communion’. Hailed as one of the most influential progressive metal bands in the world, Opeth have an ever-growing fanatically loyal fan base in Australia and are returning for a headline run after their highly successful ‘Heritage’ tour in 2013.

One factor which makes Opeth’s live shows second to none is that their concerts are always filled with surprises and you never know what their setlist is going to be! Featuring songs from their earlier death-metal material, up to their later symphonic prog-rock, an Opeth live show is like no other and is a must see for all die-hard fans.
