Swedish hard rock outfit Ghost will embark on a North American tour this fall in support of their 2018 album, Prequelle. The “Ultaimte Tour Named Death” trek will launch September 13th at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, California and stretch through the following month, wrapping October 26th at Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls, New York. Additional dates are expected to be announced soon, while San Antonio alt-rock band Nothing More will serve as support throughout the tour (save a handful of select dates).
Tickets for most concerts on Ghost’s current tour itinerary will go on sale April 5th at 10 a.m. local time. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting tomorrow, April 2nd, at 10 a.m. local time. Complete information is available on Ghost’s website.
Known for their elaborate stagecraft and costumes, Ghost’s fall tour will find the band performing a lengthy set against a backdrop that resembles a medieval cathedral, complete with stained-glass windows that depict the departed “Papa” incarnations played by lead singer Tobias Forge.
Prior to their headlining tour, Ghost will spend the summer opening for Metallica on their 25-date “WorldWired” European stadium tour. Last June, Ghost honored Metallica with a cover of “Enter Sandman” when the metal legend’s received Sweden’s top musical honor, the Polar Music Prize.
Ghost released Prequelle, their fourth LP, last June and recently earned a third Number One at rock radio with their latest single, “Dance Macabre.”
