KATATONIA To Perform Entire ‘Last Fair Deal’ Album At North American Headlining Shows

Sweden’s KATATONIAhas issued the following update:

“Yes, that’s right, folks! You might remember we pulled off the ‘Last Fair Day Gone Night’ tour in Europe earlier this spring to celebrate our 20th anniversary? Well, since the year ain’t over yet, we figured we’d give you a special treat and extend this tour by taking it across the pond. This means that all six of our headlining sideshows (on the upcoming tour with OPETH in the fall) will consist of a long double set where we’ll play you the ‘Last Fair Deal Gone Down’ album in its entirety followed by a ‘best-of’ surprise set. So we hope you come down and celebrate this anniversary with us while we still have the chance! We’ll see you there!”
