Ghost delivered the live debut of “Square Hammer”, the lead single from the new EP, “Popestar”, as the opening song of their fall North American tour at the Marina Jeep Arena at the Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY on September 16.
The song was the lone tune in the 16-song set from the new project, which was released earlier the same day.
Produced by Tom Dalgety, the package includes covers of songs originally recorded by Eurythmics, Echo & The Bunnymen, Simian Mobile Disco and Imperiet.
Opening night saw the Swedish band perform material from their three albums – including 2015’s “Meliora” – which earned Ghost their first Grammy Award in the Best Metal Performance category for the single, “Cirice”, and a Swedish Grammis Award for the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Album" of the year.
The Ghost “Popestar” North American tour runs into mid-November.
