Opeth cancel Myth show after singer hurt on tour bus
Swedish prog-metal act Opeth was forced to pull out of their slot opening for Mastodon last night at Myth after singer-guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt bumped his head on the tour bus and cut himself, according to a posting on Facebook. He was hospitalized in the Maplewood area of St. Paul.
Prior to their set, the band's tour manager announced that they would not go on, and Mastodon and Ghost extended their sets to compensate for the change. City Pages' contributor Ryan Siverson was at the show.
