If you were hoping for a Ghost tour next year, prepare to be disappointed. Mainman Tobias Forge has revealed that his gang of secretive occult-lovers will only be playing one show in 2020, taking some much needed time off from the road to focus on the creative process.
Speaking to the Herald-Whig, Tobias says, “There will be very little touring. To be specific, it’s going to be absolutely zero touring in 2020.
“We have one show in February, and that’s going be in a country that to the south of the US, 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.”

Tobias went on to reveal just what Ghost will be doing next year, which is working on the follow-up to last year’s sensational Prequelle album.
“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 eighteen months of touring again.
“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 are just about to their Prequelle Exalted boxset, which includes a reissue of their 1969 single Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic.
