GHOST Performs At London's Famed Royal Albert Hall (Video)
September 11, 2018
Fan-filmed video footage of GHOST's September 9 concert at London, United Kingdom's famed Royal Albert Hall can be seen below. Tickets to the show reportedly sold out in under an hour when they went on sale back in late June.
Armed with three Swedish Grammis awards, a U.S. Grammy, and 75 million global streams of its latest album, "Prequelle", GHOST has announced the European leg of its "A Pale Tour Named Death" world tour, the band's first set of 2019 concert dates, that will start on February 3 in Lyon, France. Ticket presales begin this Thursday, September 13 at 10 a.m. CET, and the general on sale will start Friday, September 14 at 10 a.m. 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.
Next month, GHOST will head to North America for its 40-date headline tour that starts October 25. That run will include two arena performances, November 16 at the Los Angeles Forum and December 15 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
It's already been quite a year for the Swedish rock band. 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.
