Ghost + Volbeat’s 2022 U.S. Tour to Kick Off Next Week
The countdown is on, as we're down to one week away from the start of one of 2022's most anticipated tours. Ghost and Volbeat will be co-headlining a U.S. tour that kicks off Jan. 25 in Reno, Nevada and continues through a March 3 finale in Anaheim, California. All dates, cities and venues can be seen at the bottom of this post.
“We are so incredibly excited to get back to these cities with a Volbeat headline show, but getting to do it alongside a headline show from our ghoulish friends in Ghost AND bringing the incomparable Twin Temple with us? How soon will it be January already!? Start getting ready, the thunder and lightning is coming to your town in 2022,” offered Volbeat in a statement at the time of the tour's initial announcement.
Both bands are already off to a hot start in 2022, as Volbeat's "Shotgun Blues" has climbed to No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock and Mediabase's Active Rock charts, while Ghost's "Hunter's Moon" has held the No. 2 spot on both charts. Volbeat's latest chart-topper, their tenth overall, has given the band a Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart record for the most No. 1 songs by an artist based outside of North America.
The two bands are also further whetting the collective appetites of their fanbases by teaming up on for a special limited-edition Double A-Side 7" that ties their respective covers for Metallica's Blacklist charity album. For that release last year, Ghost took on Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and Volbeat put their stamp on "Don't Tread on Me." The 7” will be pressed on crystal clear vinyl and limited to only 3,000 units with 115 copies available at each tour stop on a first come, first served basis. All proceeds from sales will be split between Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation, Ghost's Camp Aranu'tia charitable choice and Volbeat's Børne Cancer Fonden charity designation.
The tour comes with Volbeat promoting the newly released Servant of the Mind album, while Ghost are currently working up a new full-length record that's expected later this year. Be sure to catch Ghost, Volbeat and their support act Twin Temple starting next week. Tickets are available here.
