Ghost announces another US tour THIS YEAR!


After a successful tour and a very successful release of their new album, “Prequelle,” Ghost announced another American tour for 2018.

I think it’s a safe assumption to say that we love Ghost here at 1428 Elm, coming to you with news and interviews from the band. I also got to experience the Rats! On the Road tour as well and highly recommended seeing them live to you, readers. I know some of you are sad that you missed when they toured the U.S but fear not ghouls and ghoulettes, Ghost made an announcement this week and it’s a doozy. You ready for it? Ghost is doing another tour of the US of A and it’s this year. The tour is called “A Pale Tour Named Death” and it’s even bigger than the last one.

If you’re not familiar with Ghost, they are a death metal band out of Sweden fronted by Tobias Forge. Their new highly anticipated album just released June 1st and has received rave reviews, which you can read here. The album, Prequelle, centers around the massive death toll of the Black Plague of the Middle Ages and the life that survived through it. Prequelle landed No. 3 on the Billboard charts and it’s only been out a couple weeks.

The tour, which begins in October, will travel to locations that were missed with the tour in May. The locations are as follows, courtesy of Blabbermouth:
