Ghost announce winter UK tour

Ghost have announced dates for a winter tour of the UK in support of their newly-released album, “Meliora.”

Following their appearance at the Reading and Leeds festivals last weekend, the Swedish rockers will return to the UK for an 8-show run in December.

Tickets for the winter shows – with guests Dead Soul – will go on sale this Friday, September 4 at 10am local.

The UK shows start just two days after Ghost wrap up a month-long run across Europe and the Black To The Future North American tour, which begins at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22.

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace (Slayer, Nirvana, Guns N’ Roses, Linkin Park), “Meliora” presents the debut of vocalist Papa Emeritus III alongside the Nameless Ghouls following the resignation of his three-month older brother, Papa Emeritus II, earlier this year.

Ghost just scored their first-ever US Top 10 showing, with “Meliora” entering the US Billboard 200 at No. 8 with opening week sales of 29,000 copies.
