Ghost announce US spring tour

Ghost are hitting the US in April and May for the second leg of their Black To The Future tour.

The shows have been lined up to support last year’s studio release, Meliora.

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10am and VIP packages for the tour will also be made available for the first time.

Ghost say: “We wish to inform you that Ghost will be embarking on the second chapter of the Black To The Future tour in Spring 2016. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, January 15, at 10am local time.

“We suggest you tune in and get yours before it sells out. Please also be aware the band will be offering VIP packages for the first time. Stay tuned for more information.”

In December it was announced that Ghost’s song Cirice has been shortlisted in the Best Metal Performance Category at the Grammy Awards alongside Slipknot, Lamb of God and August Burns Red.

The band launched an ad campaign last week to garner votes ahead of the Grammys at the LA Staples Center on February 15, using social media hashtag #DontBeSilenced.

The occult rockers also performed Cirice on the CBS’ Late Show With Stephen Colbert last November.
