Would be an amazing show, wish I could catch something like this. Maybe they'll pull out some Brave Murder Day tracks, or even some Bloodbath.

Ooh,Cynic stop that! A 30-35 minute set by Bloodbath would put this truly over the top. All of the components are there,with the exception of Per "Sodomizer" dude. Hell ,drag him or Swano out on the dates and make it happen! Bloodbath/bucket list band too see for me! Death metal done proper!

Not only do I get to see Opeth again (for like the 10th time) but I get to see Katatonia again too. I honestly can't say who I love more between these 2 bands. I am so happy I could bleed.... Thanks for coming to NC again!

We go through this everytime... " with additional Canadian and American dates to be announced in the coming days." Leads one to believe that this is not the complete tour schedule, but rather the "carved in stone" dates that are already confirmed.

n0thing: Unfortunately you are still fvcked my friend.

I kinda feel bad for NH,Greed. Miami is kind of a "fly in" destination for bands because its so far south! Touring bands in vans in busses or vans gotta decide whether its worth driving all the way down there and back. Logistical nightmare im sure considering gas prices. Im sure the tour will hit Fla. NH might have to drive up state. And poor NH,south beach,palm trees.... Man up NH,drive a few hours north! Dont miss this tour!

=( x2

i alrdy DO drive up. there hasn't been a metal concert actually IN miami (besides the megaDave show with anthrax in downtown last yr) in yearsss. i ALWAYS drive up to ft lauderdale (< 1 hr). but i refuse to drive passed west palm beach (< 2 hrs) cuz orlando is a almost 3 hr drive and gas isn't how it used to be either dude. i've done 2 one night trips to orlando, so far, and its fvckin brutal man. never again. in flames was worth it tho.

Yeah, FAN and n0thing get almost no shows but I think it has more to do with the shape of their state than logistics. It's just not very metal to jam on the tip of a pen!s. :D

With Katatonia opening I may check this out. I saw Opeth for the sixth time last year on Watershed tour and was complete underwhelmed by the performance. Opeth just ain't the same without Pietr and the Martins but I have been wanting to see Katatonia again and the Fox Theater is a cool venue.....

Hey R10, I have some POTENTIALLY good news for you (it really is only meant for speculation though) but Per has been Katatonia's guitarist for the last 3 tours now! Their original guy left a little while back. So....maaaaaaaaybe we might get to see a Bloodbath appearance.

And rumor has it that there are no growls on the new Opeth record what-so-ever so Mikael could certainly pull double duty if that is the case!

Cmon TAg,dont get my hopes up like that. Bloodbath,as far as i know have yet to make a North American appearance live. I might be wrong about that,id need help confirming it. Didnt realize Per was in Katatonia,thought Renske . No growls on the new Opeth eh? Kinda like watershed then,and hmm,Katatonia dropped the growled long ago and they havnt suffered for it imo. Who knows,Bloodbath would be sweet though as an opener!
