As direct support for Opeth on the North American 'Heritage' tour, the band had already been on the road for five weeks, with the Chicago show coming to the Vic Theatre. After meeting the band's tour manager beneath the flashing 'Sold Out' marquee, I was led to a side entrance and into a downstairs corridor where Opeth and Katatonia occupied opposing dressing rooms.
