I just caught Opeth live last night in Sydney and it was an absolutely awesome gig. THey played in front of 3000, which they said was the largest gig they had played (not sure if that's true or not). They played for a full 2 hours and Mikael was absolutely hillarious cracking jokes between songs etc. The new songs also sounded great. Grand Conjuration and Baying of the Hounds absolutely rocked. They closed out with a Deep Purple cover and then Deliverance which, although i've heard it live 3 times now, rocks harder each time. Top gig!
