Special sets are being planned for each of the three shows, as frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt commented:

“We’re getting pumped up for the coming ‘Sorceress‘ world tour. We have three shows scheduled that are quite out of the ordinary due to their legendary status and location. These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over two separate set lists. We’ll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The second set will consist of songs exclusively from the ‘Deliverance‘ and ‘Damnation‘ records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label.

We’ll only play this set list three times on the whole world tour, so if you miss it, you’ll have missed it. Of course, all other shows will be treated with the same amount of respect and we’ll chisel out a nice diverse set list spanning over our entire career for every single show during the tour. We very much hope to see you there.”

If none of those dates work for you, you can catch the band out touring behind “Sorceress” in North America beginning late next month with The Sword.
