Entombed will be performing at the 2022 Gefle Metal Festival in Gävle, Sweden. That event will take place on July 14-16, with the band set to perform on the first day. It will feature “a totally unique concert with former Entombed members and other guest artists on stage.”
“It will be quite special. See you there!”
Gefle Metal Festival festival general manager Chris Rotenius continued:
“Next year, it will be six years since the last time Entombed was on a stage. Now we have managed to gather the core with Uffe [Cederlund], Alex [Hellid], Nicke [Andersson] and Jörgen [Sandström] to create the perfect opportunity to perform a concert beyond the ordinary. At Gefle Metal Festival next summer you can expect a unique Entombed gig. This is going to be a death metal evening you don’t want to miss.”
Notably, the show will be the band’s first since the death of their original singer LG Petrov. Gefle Metal Festival CEO Edward Janson added the following about that:
“LG was a central figure in Swedish metal who left a huge void behind. When we started Gefle Metal Festival 2016, Firespawn with LG was the very first band to play and at the last festival in 2019, he was on stage with his Entombed A.D. In between, he was in attendance as an enthusiastic fan. It feels good to be able to pay tribute to LG and his contributions to metal with this concert.”

“Twenty years is a major milestone for us; we’ve been on an amazing ride — alongside our fans — and we plan to continue that journey. Putting ‘Vicennial’ together gave us a chance to look back on our body of work over the years, and to rediscover some of our older songs during the pandemic that brought us all to a standstill. We hope that everyone enjoys the compilation as much as we do now, after this historic lockdown, and we look forward to seeing our fans again at live shows in the future.”
