This should be pretty killer: In support of their latest albums, Heritage and The Hunter, Opeth and Mastodon -- two acts that recently headlined the Ogden Theatre and are certainly no strangers to the Mile High City -- are preparing to hit the road together on the aptly named Heritage Hunter tour, which is slated to make a stop in Denver at the Fillmore Auditorium on Monday, April 23. Tickets to the show, which will also feature Ghost, just in town this past weekend, go on sale this Friday, February 3, at 10 a.m.
