Norway’s symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR have uploaded photos from their recent orchestral show rehearsal sessions onto their Facebook page.
This Saturday, May 28, 2011 at the Oslo Spektrum in Norway, DIMMU BORGIR will be performing one very exclusive show with a special, never-to-be-repeated set list with 53 members of KORK (the Norwegian Radio Orchestra) and 30 members of the Schola Cantorum Choir, who were musical guests on the Billboard-charting ninth studio album, ABRAHADABRA. This is the band’s only confirmed worldwide appearance throughout the summer.
Tickets are on sale for 570 Norwegian kroner at this location. V.I.P. tickets (which includes a Meet & Greet with the band one hour before doors, free tapas & beer and a view of the entire performance from a special riser) are SOLD OUT. Doors are at 6:30 p.m. (18:30). Showtime is 8 p.m. (20:00).
Featuring album artwork by Joachim Luetke, ABRAHADABRA debuted in North America at #42 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #5 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart, and #6 on the Independent Current Albums chart. It also debuted at #4 on the Top Rock albums and #30 Top Albums charts at iTunes (U.S.) the day of its release. In Canada, it debuted at #4 on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Hard Albums chart.
