Ghost announce first Australian headline tour

Ghost has announced dates for their first headline tour of Australia.

“We wish to inform you that your patience and loyalty have paid off,” says the band. “Ghost will be haunting Australian lands in October 2023.”

Ghost will open the series at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on October 3 before appearances in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Presales begin Wednesday, April 26 @ 9 AM local time with general public tickets on sale Friday, April 28 @ 9 AM local time.

Produced by Klas Åhlund, Ghost’s 2022 album, “Impera”, reached No. 3 on the Australian charts last year; the set features the singles “Hunter’s Moon”, “Call Me Little Sunshine”, “Twenties” and “Spillways.”

The Swedish rockers will release a covers EP, “Phantomime”, on May 18; recently previewed with a version of the 1991 Genesis track, “Jesus He Knows Me”, the five-track project features songs originally recorded by Iron Maiden, Tina Turner, The Stranglers and Television.

“Phantomime” will arrive in sync with Ghost’s first live dates of the year, beginning with a spring series of European festival and headline dates that will open on May 21 in Rouen, France.
