In Flames, Opeth announce co-headline tour
Official press release: Two of Sweden's most respected and beloved rock exports —that'd be In Flames and Opeth— will descend upon North America this December for a 15-date, co-headline tour that kicks off December 3 in Chicago and runs through December 21 in Toronto. Red Fang will serve as support. Tickets for the tour, dubbed "Communion of Sirens," will go on sale Friday, August 15 at 10AM local time. Go here for all details and ticket links. "I met [Opeth guitarist] Mikael [Akerfeldt] for the first time in 1998 during the recording of Opeth's album My Arms, Your Hearse," recalls In Flames frontman Anders Friden. "I was working in the studio and we've been friends ever since. Now 16 years more beautiful, we release albums in the same cycle and it's with great honor and pleasure that In Flames share stage with our friends and fellow countrymen in Opeth." Akerfeldt concurred, saying, "We are delighted to return to North America to tour our latest album Pale Communion. This will be the first of two North American Tours and the fact that we are teaming up with our old friends In Flames for this co-headline tour means that we can get to play some large venues and present our new stage show. I am also looking forward to drinking expensive whiskey with Anders on his account." 12/3 - Riviera Theater | Chicago, IL 12/4 - Mill City Nights | Minneapolis, MN 12/5 - Sokol Auditorium | Omaha, NE 12/6 - Ogden Theater | Denver, CO 12/8 - Warfield | San Francisco, CA 12/9 - Palladium | Los Angeles, CA 12/10 - The Marquee Theater | Tempe, AZ 12/12 - Warehouse Live | Houston, TX 12/13 - Gas Monkey Live | Dallas, TX 12/15 - Tabernacle | Atlanta, GA 12/17 - Electric Factory | Philadelphia, PA 12/18 - Terminal 5 | New York, N.Y. 12/19 - Palladium | Worcester, MA 12/20 - Metropolis | Montreal, QC 12/21 - Koolhaus | Toronto, ONT
