Ghost are scaring up a spring tour of the States

Posted by on January 11, 2016

ghost2016tourFrom Sweden, or perhaps hell, Ghost have announced that they’ll be touring the United States again this Spring. Actually, we know they’re from Sweden, as the press release we just got announcing this tour has the fascinating factoid that Ghost are just the fourth Swedish band ever to have a top ten album on Billboard‘s albums chart following Avicii, Ace of Base and Europe. That seems kind of incomprehensible (no Abba?), but it’s apparently true. But considering the band is still selling copies of Meliora and actively campaigning for a Best Metal Performance Grammy, by the time the tour hits your town, it might be to see the Grammy-winning band Ghost.

There haven’t been any opening bands announced yet, but we’ll probably hear more, as tickets are going on sale this Friday (15) at 10am local time. The tour also has the band playing some rock festivals, like Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville and Northern Invasion.
