Ghost have announced a UK and European headline tour for 2022 – find all the details below.
The Swedish metal band recently returned with their first new track in two years, ‘Hunter’s Moon’, having confirmed in 2020 that they’d begun work on a new album – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Prequelle’.
With the group set to embark on a North American tour early next year, Papa Emeritus IV and co. have now confirmed that they’ll make a UK comeback in April for a string of arena shows.
Ghost will perform at the AO Arena in Manchester on April 9, with gigs following at London’s O2 Arena (April 11), Glasgow’s OVO Hydro (13) and Birmingham’s Resorts World Arena (15).
Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and Twin Temple will support the band at the upcoming concerts. Tickets go on general sale this Friday (November 26) at 9am GMT – purchase yours from here.

Speaking previously about the band’s upcoming fifth LP, Tobias Forge explained that Ghost “won’t release an album until we know that we are actually going on tour”, adding: “The album release will coincide with the start of a tour.”
He continued: “The actual recording will last around six weeks and then there’s two to three weeks of mixing and mastering. So sometime in March the record should be finished, but it won’t be released until after the summer.”
