Ghost will launch a 6-week North American tour called the “Ultimate Tour Named Death” that puts the GRAMMY-winning Swedish rock band in the spotlight.
Ghost’s latest single on alternative radio is “Dance Macabre.”
Ghost was the winner of Best Metal Performance at the 58th GRAMMY Awards for “Cirice.”
Tobias Forge, known to many as “the Andrew Lloyd Webber of rock.” Forge is Ghost’s singer, songwriter, musician, and he creates storylines that are woven through the band’s four full-length studio albums, EPs, music videos, webisodes, and live shows, all of which advance the Ghost storyline.
Ghost – Cirice:
The ‘Ultimate Tour Named Death’ launches Friday, Sept. 13 in at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, following Ghost’s guest summer slot on Metallica’s 25-date “WorldWide” European Stadium Tour.
A series of ticket presales begin tomorrow, April 2 at 10 a.m. local time. Most tickets for the “Ultimate Tour Named Death” go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, April 5 at 10 a.m. local time.
Log on to the Ghost website http://ghost-official.com for all pre-sales, VIP packages and ticketing details. Confirmed dates are below.
San Antonio’s three-time Grammy-nominated alt-rock band Nothing More, who earned three Top 10 singles from their most recent album The Stories We Tell Ourselves, will provide support for the tour.
Ghost at the GRAMMYs:
Ghost puts on a strong performance as Cardinal Copia and the seven Nameless Ghouls who perform for more than two hours on a stage that looks like a medieval cathedral.
The set list will include favorites “Square Hammer,” “Cirice,” “Ashes,” “He Is,” “Year Zero,” “Rats,” “Mummy Dust,” “Life Eternal,” “Dance Macabre,” and many more.
