Having blasted through select dates approximately a year ago with shows across the UK, Holland and Germany, Metallica’s Irish fanbase has been very patient in waiting for the ‘Tallica beast to roll through Ireland once again.
Joining them for this historical show is none other than Swedish occult rockers Ghost who will be making their debut Irish performance under the Bay-Area thrash veterans. Having just performed in London’s Royal Albert Hall to a sold-out capacity earlier this month, Ghost are, without a doubt, one of the most talked about bands in the rock/metal universe right now and continue to become one of the most in-demand bands within the realms heavy music.
Ghost’s latest studio album ‘Prequelle‘ was released on June 1st of this year entering the US Billboard charts at number 3 much to the surprise of the mainstream media who had never heard of the band before and in some cases still haven’t. (We’re looking at you Ireland!)

Their debut album “Divide & Conquer” was hailed by critics all over the world.
