Opeth have announced a European winter tour, kicking off in their homeland of Sweden.
Some fans have questioned why VIP packages include general admission tickets for some venues, while others require fans with VIP passes to also buy a general admission ticket.
Keyboard player Joakim Svalberg explains: “Some promoters allowed the VIP seller GA tickets so this is included in the Milan package for instance and some promoters did not allow GA tickets so those shows require a GA ticket purchase on top.
“And yes the price is steep but the goods included in the package aren’t cheap to make, plus there’s taxes, fees, agent and management commissions, shipping fees etc all included.
“Stuff we can’t do much about from our end and I assure you that this is hardly making the band any money. If you think it’s worth the money get a VIP and if you don’t then just buy a normal ticket.”
