Swedish progressive metal outfit Opeth are set to play at London's Wembley Stadium. In what will be the outfit's biggest ever U.K show, the band will take to the stage at the coveted venue on Saturday 19 November.
Currently hard at work on the follow up to 2014's 'Pale Communion', the five piece hope to have the new album ready for release in time for the gig.
Speaking about the exciting announcement, front man Mikael Akerfeldt says; "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".
He continues; "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 twenty-five years as a band in our luggage".
Looking forward to the show the singer concludes; "It will be memorable and fantastic I have no doubt. I can't believe we're doing this. I'm nervous. Excited. Fucking hell! Opeth at Wembley Arena. Who would have thought?!"
Last year Opeth celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a string of special 'An Evening With...' shows, that saw the band grace the stage of historic and celebrated venues such as London's Theatre Royal, LA's Orpheum and New York's Beacon Theater.
General admission tickets and limited VIP packages for the London show go on general sale at 9am Friday 18th March, from Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
