    I really hope both are happening as well, but would much rather see Katatonia headline with PL support than just watch Katatonia as a support act and then leave.

    Holy hell - if Katatonia/PL happens I'm going to be a poor man. The new PL is fantastic. I thought they had pretty much given up on the NA market.

    Same here. There’s also a lot of slowcore coming up that I’ll have to travel for (Low, Codeine, Mark Kozelek). Right now my calendar has those three, Swallow the Sun, Agalloch, Marduk, Milwaukee Days of the Doomed festival, and is awaiting Katatonia and some other slowcore dates before I can finalize my travel plans.

    I’m going to have no money.

    I'll take Paradise Lost over Opeth too.

    They should get Anathema on there too.
    Katatonia
    Devin Townsend
    Paradise Lost
    Anathema

    I think I would have to go to every gig.

    Or what might be a little more likely, keep the Opeth/Katatonia tour, and add Anathema to that.

    I agree with this. Opeth did nothing for me when I saw them with Katatonia and I felt cheated that they got to perform much longer than Katatonia, when Katatonia was clearly the better band (I've never heard so many "boo's" before or seen bottles thrown at a band before Opeth). I am not a huge Paradise Lost fan by any means either, but I do like them more than Opeth.

    No, people were throwing bottles at Opeth. They were screaming "Bring back Katatonia!" (an uneducated group up at the bar was yelling "The first band rocked, you guys suck!") and "We came to see metal, not Keith Urban!" type stuff while Opeth was playing. When Mikael sat down on the stool, the whole venue seemed to gasp in horror and that's when the crowd started getting ridiculous. Granted, I am not a fan of Opeth and definitely wish Katatonia would have played longer instead, but I am also not a big enough jerk to hurl bottles at bands I don't like. I watched Opeth play their set with an open mind and they had a few good moments, but overall it just didn't compare to Katatonia and I felt cheated when I knew a much more appealing band was sitting quietly back stage.

    The Opeth/Katatonia tour played Charlotte, NC last time...I'm hoping against hope that they play NC again just in a different city since I had to miss it last time.

    How can anyone afford to do that? Rich parents, good paying job? or just save up for vacation?

    I basically don't spend money unnecessarily on anything but music/music travel. I keep baseline everyday personal costs (food, transportation, etc.) minimized. Also it's very rare for me to stay in a hotel at a target destination (stay with friends mostly), and I just show up, experience the music, and leave. It will become much easier once I have an actual job and no longer just a graduate school stipend.

    Seeing them several times here is way less expensive than seeing them in Europe.
