Opeth Announce October 2021 London Eventim Apollo Show

Friday, 04 September 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Opeth have announced a new London date.

The Swedish progressive giants will play the Eventim Apollo on October 16, 2021, as part of their European Evolution XXX 'By Request' Tour celebrating the band's 30th anniversary. Discussing the show, frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt said:

"So, we’re planning to celebrate a belated band-birthday, also known as BBB. How do we celebrate a thing like this, you ask? Well, we go to work. We are planning a very few select shows around the world in 2021 where you basically have the collective choice of picking the songs for the setlist.

"Since we'll be celebrating 30 years we would love to play a song from each album we’ve done. All 13 of them. If you can help us and pick your choice of one song per album from the list, and then we’ll simply play the songs with the most votes. It’s been done before, but not by us. I am reluctant and nervous, but also excited to see what songs you will choose.

"I can’t really believe we’ve been around for 30 years, but there you go. So please help us. And be gentle. The final setlist will have 13 songs. One from each album. Your call…."

Tickets for the by request show go on general sale at 9am on September 7, the same time polling opens at Opeth.com

Opeth also headline next year's ArcTanGent festival, topping the main stage bill on Saturday August 21. Tickets are on sale now.

They released their 13th studio album, 'In Cauda Venenum', in 2019.
