Ghost have just announced a headlining 2022 European tour alongside Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and Twin Temple, which makes for one delightfully subversive and occult bill.
“Hunter’s Moon,” the new single from Ghost, which appears on the soundtrack for the Halloween Kills film, served as a precursor to next year, which will see the arrival of the hotly anticipated successor to 2018’s Prequelle. There’s no word yet on when that new album will be released, but the European leg of the ‘Imperatour’ suggests it will come out sooner than later, especially with a North American tour alongside Volbeat and Twin Temple set to kick off in January.
The timing of these tour dates is reminiscent of when Ghost embarked on an exhaustive run just before Prequelle was released, with heavy touring afterward as well to help support the record.
Ghost’s European trek begins April 9 and will come to an end May 18. See the complete list of stops below. Tickets go on sale on Nov. 26 at 9AM CET at Ghost’s website.
