Enigmatic Swedish metal outfit Ghost have announced the European leg of their ‘A Pale Tour Named Death’ world tour, the band’s first set of 2019 concert dates, that will start on 3 February in Lyon, France. Ticket pre-sales begin this Thursday, 13 September at 10 am CET, and the general on sale will start Friday, 14 September at 10 am CET.
For these European dates, a limited number of VIP Cardinal Copia Upgrade Packages have just been made available. The special packages include early entry to the venue, a pre-show photo op with the Cardinal, a Ghost altar candle, a Ghost mystery puzzle and other exclusive perks.
Ghost’s 2018 dall tour schedule began with a sold-out headline concert at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall on 9 September. The band then heads to North America for their 40-date headline tour that starts on 25 October. That run will include two arena performances, 16 November at the Los Angeles Forum and 15 December at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. In addition, a limited number of GA floor seats for both the Los Angeles and New York arena dates have just been released. They will be available for purchase today at 10 a.m. local time.
It’s already been quite a year for the Swedish metallers. In addition to the early global success of Prequelle, ‘Rats’, the album’s first single, has accumulated more than 25 million streams, set a 2018 record for maintaining the #1 spot at U.S. Rock Radio for nine consecutive weeks, and the track’s companion video has logged north of 12 million YouTube views. Last month, Ghost released the provocative Carpenter Brut remix of one of Prequelle’s most popular tracks, ‘Dance Macabre’, that crossed the band into the world of dance music.
