Ghost B.C., fronted by new leader Cardinal Copia, perform for diehard fans at Washington D.C.’s Warner Theatre

Ghost B.C. came to Washington, D.C.’s Warner Theatre on May 20 and performed for a sold out crowd, who were excited to see the band’s new front man Cardinal Copia, performed by Tobias Forge.

The night started with diehard fans wrapping around the block, anxiously waiting for doors to open, while the VIP fans were granted early access to the venue and were able to see the band’s past front men lined up on display in black crates. A recent promo video for Ghost’s new album Prequelle, which comes out on June 1, showed how the past front men known as Papa 1, 2, and 3 were killed off to make room for the Cardinal Copia character, all of which were played by Tobias Forge.

The performance started as the venue’s curtains were drawn back to reveal a stained glass background with a picture of the Papa Zero character. The band’s musicians, the Nameless Ghouls, started playing until Cardinal Copia came out to start with the song “Rats” which is off of the new album. The set was a mix of the band’s more well-known songs, while also including tracks off of the upcoming Prequelle. Cardinal Copia made a number of costume changes, most of which were color variations of his tuxedo costume and Cardinal robes. The band put on a unique show in Ghost fashion and they gave fans something that is fresh even to those that have seen them live before.

They continue this by changing the narrative of the back story that comes with the band and the fantastic new music that they are creating. It is definitely a show you do not want to miss and continues the tradition of shock rock bands like KISS but with an interesting dark twist and intriguing story line. You can preorder the new album at lomavistarecordings.com.
