Swedish progressive metallers OPETH have announced details of two very special U.S. performances celebrating the group's landmark 25th anniversary. The unique shows, dubbed "An Evening With Opeth", are set for October 22 at New York's Beacon Theater and October 24 at Los Angeles' Orpheum Theater and will see OPETH celebrating their remarkable career with two unique sets each night. The progressive Swedes will perform 2005's much-lauded "Ghost Reveries" album in its entirety (which in turn is celebrating its 10th anniversary), plus a second set of classics from their 25-year career.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 1 at 10:00 a.m. local time with VIP/fan-club presale beginning Wednesday, April 29 at 10:00 a.m. local time. A very limited amount of VIP upgrades will also be available on pre-sale which allow early entry into the venue, a 20-minute meet-and-greet with the band, a commemorative VIP laminate pass, a selection of guitar plectrums from each guitarist, your choice of t-shirt from the merch booth, the official tour poster and a pair of Martin Axenrot signature drumsticks.

OPETH guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt commented on the special performances, saying, "The forces that be put up a very mystical and subtle little advert on the so called Internet.
"Yes, we will celebrate 25 years of being OPETH in 2015 and this is reason enough to gather up the forces and play. For you."
