On May 1, GHOST played a three-song acoustic set inside the 200-capacity Clive Davis Theater at Los Angeles’s Grammy Museum. Pictures from the performance (credit: Rebecca Sapp) appear below.
The group’s setlist was as follows:
03. Jigolo Har Megiddo
Although no cameras or cell phones were allowed inside the venue, brief snippets of each song can be seen below.
During the performance, frontman Tobias Forge — dressed as his newest incarnation, Cardinal Copia — was backed by three Nameless Ghouls on acoustic guitar. He encouraged crowd participation during the chorus of current single “Rats”, playfully boasted about “Cirice” earning the group a Grammy Award and said that “Jigolo Har Megiddo” — the ending of which saw one Nameless Ghoul break a string — was written about “getting down.”
GHOST will release its new album, “Prequelle”, on June 1 via Loma Vista Recordings. The record was tracked last year at Artery studios in Stockholm with producer Tom Dalgety (OPETH, ROYAL BLOOD) and mixed in January at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, California with Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, SLAYER).
GHOST kicks off its first tour in support of “Prequelle” on May 5 in Riverside, California.
