So, I was just remembering an Opeth show I went to a while back, and I remembered something Mikael had said. Someone's cardboard sign (or something) somehow made it's way to the foot of the stage and was flopping and flying around, to which Mikael exclaimed:

"What is that?! Is that paper with shit on it? Is it?! Is it?!"

I couldn't help myself. I started laughing right where I was.

What are some things that frontmen, or any bandmembers have said at shows that were hilarious and/or awesome?

A friend in the States told me about this:

At a Chili Peppers show, John Frusciante saw someone with an "I LOVE YOU JOHN!!!" sign in the crowd, and it was ****ing with his concentration cos he messed up the intro to "Snow" twice. In the end, he went up to his mic and said, "Hey you, put your stupid ****ing sign down! It's distracting me, it's making hard for me to concentrate, so just put it down!"

Something like this at the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert:

Person in audience (while Paul was talking): FREE BIRD!!!
Paul: Who shouted Free Bird?!
Person: *stands up and takes a bow*
Paul: If I wasn't in the middle of something, I'd come down there and punch you in the face

Those TSO guys have a pretty good sense of humor.

My avatar is Åkerfeldt quote as well.

There's a Youtube vid of an encore game they played, it was a metal quiz. Mikael played a few riffs, and the the crowd guessed.

But at the very beginning, it just starts off with him saying,

"Metal quiz. And it's not going to be where I ask questions, like hard questions about heavy metal bands, because I know everything about metal. I'm a fucking oracle."
