“We wish to inform you, Ghost will be haunting North America this Summer 2022 on the ImperaTour with special guests, Mastodon & Spiritbox,” states an update from Ghost.
The North American ImperaTour will see the Grammy Award-winning Swedish theatrical rock band headlining 19 arenas across the US and Canada (plus an appearance at Virginia’s Blue Ridge Rock Fest), kicking off in August.
The newly announced dates will comprise Ghost’s first North American run since the March 11, 2022 release of its fifth album, Impera, via Loma Vista Recordings.
The announcement of ImperaTour’s North American swing completes a perfect storm of Ghost mania, coinciding with this week’s ascension of “Call Me Little Sunshine” to the top of the Rock Radio chart and the unveiling of Chapter 11: Family Dinner, the newest instalment of Ghost’s long-running narrative series of webisodes. In this next chapter, we find Papa Emeritus IV, having returned to the Ministry, joining Sister Imperator, Mr. Saltarian, and the spirit of Papa Nihil for a meal of Chinese takeout.
Tickets for Ghost’s North American ImperaTour will be on sale from May 20 at 10 AM local time, here. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets in select markets before the general public beginning Wednesday, May 18 at 12 PM, local time through Thursday, May 19 at 10 PM, local time.
