The band will play 2 sets; one of favorites over their career both new and old. And the second a selection from the "Deliverance" and "Damnation" Albums. These performances will be at 3 legendary venues. On October 1, 2016 they will play at Radio City Music Hall in New York. On November 19, at Wembley in London, UK. and on Feb 6, 2017 at the famous Sydney Opera House (pictured above) in Sydney Australia.
Frontman/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt said:
“We’re getting pumped up for the coming ‘Sorceress’ world tour. We have three shows scheduled that are quite ‘out of the ordinary’ due to their legendary status and location – Wembley Arena in London/UK, Radio City Music Hall in New York/USA and the famous Opera House in Sydney, Australia. These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over two separate set lists. We’ll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The second set will consist of songs exclusively from the ‘Deliverance’/’Damnation’ records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label. So it’s a little bit of a celebration indeed! We’ll only play this set list three times on the whole world tour, so if you miss it, you’ll have missed it. Of course, all other shows will be treated with the same amount of respect and we’ll chisel out a nice diverse set list spanning over our entire career for every single show during the tour. We very much hope to see you there!”
