Seven new dates for the "Ultimate Tour Named Death," Ghost's six-week North American headline arena tour are announced, adding shows in Edmonton, Toledo, Moline, Youngstown, Huntington, Hamilton, and Ottawa. A series of ticket pre-sales begins today at 12NOON local, and the public on-sale starts at 10 AM local this Friday, May 24. Log on to http://ghost-official.com for all pre-sale, VIP packages, and ticketing details. With Nothing More providing support for the tour and Twin Temple supporting on the 9/28 SLC date, the Frank Productions Concerts-produced Fall dates kick off on September 13 in Bakersfield, CA and run through to October 26 in Glens Falls, NY.
In support of this tour, "Faith," the third single from Ghost's GRAMMY-nominated album Prequelle, went to Rock Radio just last week and is the #1 most added track there this week with a total of 36 adds. "Faith" follows Prequelle's two previous singles, "Rats" and "Dance Macabre," both of which held the #1 spot on the Active and Mainstream Rock Radio charts for multiple weeks. An eminently tight track with its relentless and melodic guitar solos and dark, torturous lyrics, "Faith" manifests Ghost creative force Tobias Forge's flair for soaring stadium-size anthems.
A live performance of "Faith" was shot last November at Ghost's sold-out Los Angeles Forum show, the band's first-ever North American headline arena concert. The clip showcases this tour's expanded theatrical production, a striking stage set resembling a medieval cathedral with a backdrop of illuminated stained-glass windows. In addition to rich costumes, special effects, and a spectacular light show tailored-made for arenas, the Cardinal, the Ghouls, and the Ghoulettes will take advantage of a series of multi-level platforms and walkways to prowl around on while performing some of Ghost's fan-favorite songs from the band's albums and EPs catalogs.
