Acoustic shows..?! I know they're getting old, but this is going too fast

".... Special guests being Steven Wilson. Mikael and Wilson will be sucking each other off on stage while playing some awesome retro prog stuff.
Thanks for coming"

Nice poster.

I think it'd be cool to see them playing Acoustic, I'd probably go see this if it was in Thunder Bay

This should be nice, something tells me they are going to release yet another DVD of the acoustic shows.

And I will buy it because I'm that kind of fanboy.

Replace Mikael's name by someone else's, and that is something Mikael would say in good comedy inspired day.

This should be interesting. I hope they bring this tour to Europe.

I might go to both acoustic shows in Stockholm. Why? Because I'm a nerd.

Definitely going to the Malmö one even though I won't dig their heritage songs. Hopefully they will at least play one or two older songs.

Mikael is the best metal musician of the last 20 years, he can do whetever the fuck he wants to.

I've seen them three times and they've been pretty generous with older tracks every time. Maybe I've just had some luck? Not an expert on Opeth setlists. I'm sure though that they will play at least or possibly around 2-3 songs from the first three albums.

I like everything from Orchid to ghost Reveries... I only start having problems with Watershed. I have never been on a Opeth concert so that's why I have no idea of their setlist
I would be very happy to hear something from Still Life and Blackwater Park. After those two songs, I guess I will be happy!

Then I wouldn't be worried. To my knowledge the setlists are often covering most of the albums, Blackwater Park usually getting at least two songs. Too bad you'll probably hear some Watershed and Heritage then.

I think Heritage is great, even love it sometimes. Not sure what to think of it live though. Yeah, it'll probably be a bunch of those songs during the acoustic shows and I don't mind it there. It's special shows and I know they probably won't be covering the old albums. But I'm talking about the general shows, like I'm also going to see them now in September and to hear a bunch of Heritage then? Naaah, I don't even want Damnation songs or other "clean" and/or "ballad" stuff. It's Opeth damn it! Give me patented Åkerfeldt groooooowls!

Well, I do like some Watershed stuff, I mean... I definitely don't hate it since I would give it around a 7 myself, but it's on that album it started to go a bit meh... and Heritage is... just ok I guess. It just doesn't feel natural for them But yeah I'm still very optimistic and I'm sure it will be great if I make it there!

Who cares, it's Opeth? They're legends for Crom's sake! They change just like any other band so whoopty doo! I love them to death, so it's all good.
