Ghost deliver a ritual to the masses as they bring their Black to the Future tour to the Warfield in the City by the Bay.
Opening their set with “Spirit,” which also happens to be the first track on their latest offering Meliora, Ghost embarked on a 17-song journey on a cold and foggy evening in San Francisco.
Papa Emeritus III and the Nameless Ghouls gave their rabid fans (some of whom were in full costume) a good mix of songs from their back catalogue, and highlights included “Body and Blood,” “Devil Church,” “Year Zero,” and a stripped-down acoustic “Jigolo Har Megiddo.”
Support on this tour comes from London Psychedelic band Purson.
National Rock Review photographer Raymond Ahner was on hand.
