Fans eagerly awaiting the reverent antics of Ghost needn’t wait any longer, with the band announcing via Facebook that they will play two club dates in Sydney and Melbourne as sideshows to their Big Day Out 2014 appearance.
AJ Maddah initially told fans the clergymen would only make a Melbourne sideshow appearance, tweeting back in November, “Not sure if I can get a venue in Sydney tbh. I think both metro & Hi Fi are booked out.”
But devout followers in Sydney can give thanks and rejoice as Ghost confirmed in the final hour they will hit up two city sideshows, playing a headlining show at Sydney’s Hi-Fi on 28 January following their Melbourne Hi-Fi gig on 22 January. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 14 January, 9am AEDT.
This news follows reports emerging earlier today that last-minute Big Day Out 2014 replacements The Hives, Beady Eye and Deftones will be performing their own headlining tour dates while in Australia.
They are now added to the ranks of a slew Big Day Out sideshows, including dates for headliners Arcade Fire and Snoop Dogg, that were announced in November last year. Details of those shows, and all the latest Big Day Out sideshows news, can be found on our Big Day Out 2014 Sideshows Feed here.
UPDATE 2:27PM 23/01/14: Joining Ghost on their sideshow spiritual conquests is Melbourne’s industrial metal heavyweights Witchgrinder.
