Next year marks 30 years since Nile came together, and Sunday could be the last time the death metal favorite plays Orpheum's Ybor City location.

Key songwriter and lead singer Karl Sanders is the only remaining member of the original trio still performing with the band, and one of Nile’s last performances before the world went to shit was actually over at Orpheum, which will hosts the band again, just weeks after announcing the venue's departure from the historic district it called home for two decades.
Joining Nile, which is touring in support of its latest album Nilotic Rites, is the even-older, Pennsylvania-based Incantation, as well as Century Media Records’ Sanguisugabogg, and I Am.
