The Wiltern | Los Angeles, California
Grammy Award-winning ghouls Ghost B.C. bring their depraved proclamations to Los Angeles, spreading the message of sacrilege in the form of dark pop hymns that entice, enthrall and terrify! Enjoy the unholy spectacle as Papa Emeritus III leads the clergy on their fiendish Popestar Tour, which will arrive at The Wiltern on Friday 21st October 2016!
Swedish heavy metal band Ghost are known for their eccentric on-stage presence, anonymity (the members are known as Nameless Ghouls, and their frontman is known as Papa Emeritus III), Catholic and satanic imagery, and their elaborate, face-concealing costumes. The band formed in 2006 and their first album, Opus Eponymous, was released on October 18, 2010. They have released three studio albums in total, with their third album, Meliora, reaching number one in their home country of Sweden and number eight in the United States. Its lead single, "Cirice", earned them the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.
