Mastodon and Opeth announce new North American tour dates

Mastodon and Swedish rockers Opeth have announced dates for the second leg of a co-headlining North American tour.

Following a late 2021 series by the pair, the three-week spring series will open in Montreal, QC on April 21.

”We’re excited to come back to North America for the second leg of shows together with our ‘brothers from other mothers’ in Mastodon,” says Opeth mainman Mikael Åkerfeldt. “And… hello, Canada! It’s been too long, we know! We’ll soon dust off the ole guitars etc. and get in shape for this run.

"The last tour was quite splendid; the only downside being the restrictions. We don’t know for sure how it’s going to pan out this time around, but we’re hoping for a bit more freedom to move around. Crossing fingers here. See you semi-soon! Signing off from a rainy, gloomy Stockholm, Mikael (on behalf of Opeth).”

A ticket pre-sale will be available Tuesday, February 8 at 10 AM EST through Thursday, February 10 at 10 PM, local time, while general public tickets will go on sale Friday, February 11 at 10 AM local time.

Mastodon are touring in support of their 2021 double album, “Hushed And Grim”, which earned the Atlanta outfit a nomination for a 2022 Grammy Award in the Best Metal Performance category, while Opeth’s latest release is 2019’s “In Cauda Venenum”, a Top 10 record in several European countries while peaking at No. 12 in their Swedish homeland.
