Ghost On Supporting Metallica: It’s Going To Be Very Special”

Get ready…

This summer, Ghost will hit the road for a 25-date stadium tour with Metallica. And Tobias Forge can’t contain his excitement…

Metallica are one of my favourite bands of all time, so I’ve had to sort of split myself in two. One half is the private Tobias Forge. He’s a big fan and has been since he was a kid. He’s a collector of all things Metallica! Then there’s the 37-year-old version of myself: the musician who’s effectively one of their colleagues. 

I guess you would say we are friends at this point. We’re on a talkative, texting basis. We try to stay in touch with each other. We are all very busy people, obviously, and we all have lives outside our jobs, so [contact] is very sporadic. 

We’ve played together in the past, but we’ve never gotten to go out on a night-after-night basis. I was very happy to be asked. I mean, holy shit! Imagine if I’d known that when I went to see them on the Black Album tour. Even my 22-year-old self would’ve – to paraphrase Lars Ulrich – been asking to share those drugs. 

It’s going to be very special. Fans should expect us to deliver a different production. It’s a good set length, too. I think we’ll be playing about an hour. Obviously, though, we’re going to have to change things up from our two-and-a-half-hour headline set…”
