Ghost Are Returning to Milwaukee for Concert Dedicated to Fallen Audience Member
Published Aug 31, 2018Back in May of this year, Ghost were forced to cancel the remainder of a performance in Milwaukee when a man died mid-set. Now, the Swedish metal outfit have announced plans to return to the city for a makeup show.
Milwaukee's CBS 58 reports that Ghost will play the Riverside Theater on October 31, dedicating the show to late fan Jeff Fortune, his family and friends.
The band have also created an exclusive T-shirt for the event that will feature the band's Cardinal Copia and Fortune dressed as Halloween character Michael Meyers. You can find the graphic above. All proceeds from shirt sales will go Fortune's family.
All ticket holders from the May 31 performance will be contacted by the Pabst Theater Group with an invitation to RSVP for the rescheduled show, and must do so by September 30 to guarantee entry. No new tickets for the performance will be sold.
The Halloween date in Milwaukee has been added to Ghost's upcoming "A Pale Tour Named Death" trek, which begins October 26 in Tulsa, OK. A pair of Canadian dates have been locked in for December, and you can find the entire itinerary here.
Ghost delivered their Prequelle LP in May of this year.
