Ghost have announced that they’ll play a special show at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this year.

They’ll play the iconic venue on September 9, with an O2 pre-sale getting under way on Wednesday (June 27) at 9am GMT. The pre-sale will begin on Thursday at the same time, while tickets will go on general sale from 9am on Friday – all from Live Nation (opens in new tab).

The one-off show has been organised in support of the band’s latest album Prequelle, which launched earlier this month.

Last week, Ghost leader Tobias Forge revealed that he had the next five-years planned out for the band and hinted at a collaborative effort which could happen in the future.

He told radio station Rock 100.5: “I know what we're going to do next time, yes. It will be a work in progress up until the day that I master the album. But I know where the story sort of goes. 

“And with simple mathematics of how a tour cycle usually pans out – a record comes out, you tour for 18 months, then you go back into the studio – that takes six or seven months and then it's 18 more months of touring.

“I think we have a five-year plan. Then I have another project at the end of that tunnel that might or might not materialise.”

Following their performance in London, Ghost will head out on the road across North America. Find a full list of dates below.
