Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt Taken to Hospital

Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt had to be taken to the hospital last night before their scheduled show at The Myth in St. Paul.  According to their twitter account he bumped his head while on the tour bus which required him to get stitches. Akerfeldt also suffered some very severe headaches but is expected to be up for the next show.  As the main songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, this must have caused the band and fans some alarm.

Mastodon played an extended set to keep everyone happy.  Pittsburgh Music Magazine wishes Mikael a speedy recovery.
