Swedish progressive metallers OPETH were forced to cancel their performance last night (Monday, May 7) at the Myth in Maplewood, Minnesota after the band’s guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt was reportedly rushed to the hospital. Unconfirmed online reports suggest that Åkerfeldt was involved in a car accident, but is expected to make a full recovery. More details will be made available soon.
OPETH has teamed up with MASTODON for a spring North American co-headlining tour. The trek kicked off on April 4 in Portland, Maine, and was scheduled to visit more than 30 cities in the U.S. and Canada before wrapping up at Atlanta’s Masquerade Music Park on May 12.
