Ghost Will Do 'Absolutely Zero Touring' In 2020


Canadian fans of Ghost who want to see the Swedish rock band live will need to get to Hamilton or Ottawa next month.

Frontman Tobias Forge said this week they plan to take next year off.

“There will be very little touring. To be specific, it's going to be absolutely zero touring in 2020,” he told the Herald-Whig. “We have one show in February, and that's going be in a country that's to the south of the U.S., and that will be it. That's the only show we're doing, and that's going to be the wrap-up of this tour cycle.

“Next year is going to be, at least from a touring point of view, off. But there's going to be a lot of other things happening, so be sure that you're going to see plenty from Ghost next year.”

Ghost’s The Ultimate Tour Named Death stops in Hamilton on Oct. 17 and in Ottawa on Oct. 18.

Forge said the band will be busy working on a new album in 2020. “The year is going to be spent making a new record, a new record that will come out in 2021, the beginning of 2021, and then we're looking at 18 months of touring again.”

Ghost's most recent album, Prequelle, was released in 2018.
