Ghost Announces Arena Shows In New York and Los Angeles

Josh Lowe for Alternative Revolt

Both the east and west coasts are going to get their fair share of Ghost, as they get set to take on The Forum in Los Angeles, and Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The shows are parts of Ghost’s “A Pale Tour Named Death,” and will come to light at the end of this year.

News of the shows broke this morning (April 30th) with a press conference helmed by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator at Irving Plaza in New York City.

Ghost are on a roll right now with the release of their newest single, “Rats,” which is perhaps one of the bands best songs. “A few years ago, I decided, like, ‘I really want to have a big opening track that just blows people’s minds immediately,'” said singer Tobias Forge. “So I wrote ‘Square Hammer’ and that went well. But I didn’t want ‘Square Hammer’ to turn into a ‘Start Me Up’, where that always feels best to play first. I want to be able to mix it up. So we needed another song that works as an opening track. That was basically my intention with ‘Rats’.”

Nov. 16 – The Forum – Los Angeles, CA
