Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson remembered the time when they were sharing the stage with Opeth and shared a new post on his official Instagram account.
After releasing the In Absentia album in 2002, Porcupine Tree wanted to promote the album and started their North American tour in the next year. For the tour, they decided to team up with the iconic band, Opeth.
Steven Wilson wanted to remember those times where they shared the stage together with Opeth and shared some of the pictures from those days. Also, he reminded that they played fifteen shows together.
While talking about the past, Steven also made a new announcement. Steven mentioned that they released a live album back in the days for their tour with Opeth, and they are re-releasing the recordings once again on July 30.
Here is what Steven Wilson wrote:
“Previously released digitally on Bandcamp, Porcupine Tree – House of Blues Los Angeles 2003 will be available on 2LP vinyl on 30th July 2021. Pre-order now from Burning Shed, find the link on the PT Instagram bio!
In the Summer of 2003, we teamed up with Opeth for a co-headlining tour of North America, performing 15 shows in Canada and the USA. This recording captures our set at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on 30th July.
We went on first on this particular evening, playing a set of around 90 minutes. Mixed for the first time from the multitrack recording, House of Blues Los Angeles 2003 presents the complete performance with the exception of second encore Trains which suffered from issues due to a guitar string break!”
