Ghost have announced a six-week North American headline tour that will see the Swedish rock band’s elaborate rock theater presentation metamorphose into a full-on arena production. Billed as the ‘Ultimate Tour Named Death the tour is due to kick off Friday, 13 September in at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, California, following Ghost’s special guest summer slot on Metallica’s 25-date ‘WorldWide’ European stadium tour.

A series of ticket pre-sales begins on 2 April at 10 a.m. local. Tickets for the Ultimate Tour Named Death go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, 5 April 5 at 10 am local.

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’s widely acclaimed live performances are known for raising an ungodly ruckus, and that will only be amplified as the band brings its stage production to arenas. Cardinal Copia and the seven Nameless Ghouls will perform for more than two hours on a striking stage set resembling a medieval cathedral with a backdrop of illuminated stained-glass windows that pay tribute to the three now-departed Papas.

    I love Ghost! Unfortunately they aren’t coming close to my hometown. That’s okay, though. I’m too old probably to attend live shows, especially metal because I’m 50% deaf in my left ear and don’t want to risk losing more of it. I know you can get earplugs, but they are very uncomfortable for me.
    Anyway, Ghost have brought back the days of heavy metal being much more tuneful and providing a great theatrical show to go along with it. I love all sorts of metal except for deathcore and metalcore, and to be frank, I’m not real crazy about grind or a lot of hardcore, either, although with that genre it’s better to hear the band before judging them because some of them write pretty good tunes.
