Swedish metallers Opeth have issued the following update: "Due to Mikael [kerfeldt, guitar/vocals] contracting varicella (chicken pox), the appearances this weekend, Peace & Love (Borlnge, Sweden on June 26), Hovefestivalen (Norway on June 27), Metaltown (Gothenborg, Sweden on June 28), and Graspop Metal Meeting (Dessel, Belgium on June 29), have all been cancelled. We hope to have Mike on his feet again as soon as possible, and obviously apologize to all and any that had set out to see Opeth this weekend." "Watershed", the new album from Opeth, sold more than 19,000 copies of in the United States in its first week of release. "Watershed" is the follow-up to the band's acclaimed "Ghost Reveries" CD, which debuted at No. 64 on the Billboard chart back in September 2005 with first-week sales of just under 15,000. Opeth's 2003 album, "Damnation", opened with a little over 5,000 copies. "Ghost Reveries" has sold more than 95,000 copes in the United States since its 2005 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
