Ghost @ Roskilde 2016

The first time I saw Ghost was at Roskilde in 2011. This year was their first time back. What a difference five years can make!

In fact, Ghost has really upped their game since the last time I saw them in early 2013. I take back what I may have inferred about Ghost in my comparison to Tribulation. Ghost no longer just goes out there to play their songs. Lots of theater is involved. I still prefer Tribulation’s heavier and more complex tunes, but both bands put on quite a live performance.

Ghost also received a major stage upgrade. In 2011 they played on the now defunct Odeon Stage in front of maybe 1,000 people. This year, even though they didn’t go on until 2 in the morning, there were over 17,000 people watching them on the Arena Stage.

2016 Roskilde Festival Graffiti Zone


Before Ghost got to the 2016 Roskilde Festival, Papa Emeritus’s likeness made it onto a wall in the graffiti zone. The graffiti zone turned into a major pissing area. By the last day the smell of urine was so bad I avoided getting near the walls.

Ghost (Papa Emeritus I) @ Roskilde Festival 2011

Ghost BC is one of the more well-known metal bands these days. Before they changed their name to Ghost BC they were known simply as Ghost, and before Papa Emeritus II became such he was known simply as Papa Emeritus.

Today’s photo comes from one of their early performances, their 24th to be exact. Since then I have seen them twice more, and they have played hundreds of shows in the three years since I took this picture.

@GhostBcOfficial My random, desktop image of the day is from Ghost’s first-ever show in Denmark and just their 24th appearance anywhere. Since then they have played about 300 shows and counting.

One of Ghost B.C.’s “Nameless Ghouls”

The new CD is great. Unfortunately, I won’t be making a road trip to see them in San Francisco (4/25/13) or Portland (4/26/13), but you can see more pics I took the three times I have seen them (when they were simply called Ghost) by clicking here.
