Tobias Forge was forced to end the Ghost set early on the evening of June 18th during the band’s headline Hellfest set in Clisson, France.

The band had completed 17 of their usual 20 song set, and as they completed the song “Dance Macabre,” the confetti reigned down and vocalist and leader, Tobias Forge, disclosed to the crowd, “My voice is completely fucked, I cannot sing one other song for you.”

See video below, of Forge, aka Papa Emeritus informing the crowd of his condition.

As the crowd was left wanting more, they had at least, been treated to the debut of the track “Griftwood” from fifth album Impera, released in March.


Ghost hit the road again in North America in August.
