Acclaimed Swedish metallers OPETH will embark on a U.K. tour in March.
This trek will be the first of two U.K. tours planned for 2003, and is very specifically geared towards the heavier material featured on the group's recent "Deliverance" CD. The second, yet-to-be-scheduled tour is planned to show the "Damnation" side of OPETH — pure bluesy, classic acoustic, beautiful mellowness. Expect venues to be unusual.
Dates for the "Deliverance" U.K. tour are as follows:
Mar. 10 - Portsmouth, UK @ Wedgwood Rooms
Mar. 11 - Manchester, UK @ Hop & Grape
Mar. 12 - London, UK @ Mean Fiddler
Mar. 13 - Exeter, UK @ University
Mar. 14 - Glasgow, Garage
Mar. 15 - Nottingham, Rock City
Mar. 16 - Bradford Rio
Mar. 17 - Birmingham Academy
Mar. 19 - Dublin, Whelan's
The OPETH alter-ego album, "Damnation", is due for release in March/April 2003.
