About Ghost: GRAMMY Award winning Swedish Rock band Ghost have elevated themselves to one of the most esteemed and celebrated rock bands in the world today. Three consecutive #1 Active Rock radio singles, debuting at #1 (Rock) + #3 (Top 200) on the Billboard album charts, accumulating well over a Billion streams, headlining arena tours (including sold out shows at The Forum LA + Barclays Center NYC), opening stadium shows for Metallica, and gracing magazine covers and television screens the world over are just part of their story. The band’s passionate fan base and critical praise also stems from their ability to constantly be pushing their creative boundaries. Their most recent album Prequelle, is loosely based on The Black Plague of 14th century Europe, a metaphor that sadly became a premonition that applies to the societal ills of our times. Though the band’s music at times has dark lyrical content, it never loses it’s catchy Rock edge. A nationwide US arena tour (Winter 2022) surely is only the start of what may be Ghost’s biggest year yet!
About Volbeat: Since forming in 2001, Volbeat has gone from the clubs of Copenhagen to headlining stages around the world, including the famed Telia Parken stadium in Denmark (becoming the only domestic artist to ever sell out the venue). Over the course of seven record-breaking albums the band has picked up number one songs (including nine #1s on the US Mainstream Rock chart and counting, the most of any band based outside of North America), multi-platinum certifications, awards and accolades (including a Grammy nomination) all over the planet. Their latest album, Rewind, Replay, Rebound, was released on August 2nd, 2019 and has spawned the hit singles “Last Day Under The Sun,” “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” and “Leviathan.” A live album featuring songs recorded during the subsequent world tour, Rewind, Replay, Rebound: Live in Deutschland, was released digitally on November 27th, 2020. Most recently, the band shared a “double blast” of brand new songs for the Summer: “Dagen Før (feat. Stine Bramsen)” and “Wait A Minute My Girl.” They also contributed a cover of “Don’t Tread on Me” to The Metallica Blacklist, with all proceeds from the track benefiting the All Within My Hands Foundation and the Børne Cancer Fonden of Denmark.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now this is the kind of Monday morning news that all of the Metal Legions deserve to see as they indulge in the morning coffee. It’s without question that I enjoy both of these bands and have been seeing them live in concert for a number of years. Sadly I never saw Papa I or Cardinal Copia who is now been raised to the title of Papa Emeritus IV but I’ve still supported the music. Volbeat I remember seeing for the very first time back when they opened up on a Nightwish tour and since that time they have just just exploded. The two of them delivering the goods on the same stage is going to be an exciting event for any in attendance. Twin Temple is still new to me as I’ve only heard a bit of their music and only heard about their wild stage show. I will advise that fans plan on checking them out as well because why not. You paid for the ticket and you should see the entire show. Now as you know, there are numerous restrictions on places where the bands would go and at this time you have to show proof of vaccination or a negative test. That’s the law in numerous regions so be aware of the latest updates before you plunk down the cash. If you don’t comply with the laws you are not getting in. I’ve seen it happen. Feel free to chime in down below in the comments section with your thoughts on this announcement and I will see you again soon as the world continues to rebuild to some normal. Stay safe out there.
