Ghost add headline dates to North American tour with Iron Maiden

Swedish rockers Ghost have announced a series of US headline dates during this summer’s North American tour with Iron Maiden.

In addition to the joint trek – which begins in Bristow, VA on June 3 – Ghost will play 13 shows of their own along the way in support of their 2016 EP “Popestar.”

Pre-sale tickets for the Ghost headlining dates are on sale now with general public seats available March 31 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Last month, the group won the "Best Hard Rock/Metal" category at the Swedish Grammis Awards in Stockholm for “Popestar”, ahead of fellow nominees Amaranthe, Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames.

The event marked the band’s third win at the Grammis, following a 2014 award for 2013’s “Infestissumum” and last year’s prize for 2015’s “Meliora.”

Under the leadership of Papa Emeritus III, Ghost debuted its new lineup of Nameless Ghouls at the launch of a spring European tour in Norwich, UK on March 24.
