From its debut album in 2010 to present day, it's safe to say that Ghost's live presence has only become larger and larger. So it seems safe to assume that in the future, Ghost's shows would become insanely huge… but how huge, exactly?
According to an interview with Papa Emeritus with Krone, he'd like for Ghost to eventually become a "gothic horror version" of Rammstein, says he would like to "install different files, install several stages in an arena or hall and create an unprecedented overall experience," and wouldn't rule out Broadway shows.
The best part is that it seems like the wheels are already turning for this to maybe, maybe become a reality in 2019!
"In my world, the shows we're currently playing are 30% max of what Ghost is thinking about when it comes to theatricality.
"The concept will always be a sweaty rock show, but it's always been the goal to create something superior. I would like to install different files, install several stages in an arena or hall and create an unprecedented overall experience.
"I would like Ghost to be a gothic horror version of Rammstein.
"I can not talk about it in detail, but we are also working on integrating Ghost into a kind of classical musical concept. This of course involves a lot of effort and it's all about the songs and riffs.
"You need a production company that's already networked to do the work for you. This takes at least until 2019 and you have to write a story and design the music.
"This cannot be underestimated, and in the end it takes five to six years to implement it. However, I have arranged these things well in my head and we are looking for partners with whom we can implement this.
"I do not know where we'll end up, but we're already networking. West End or Broadway shows are not unrealistic. Hopefully at least, we'll know more in five years. [Laughs] We are only in the starting phase, but I have a rather solid idea for the next five years. You have to go baby steps. [Laughs]"
Look, if Ghost is going to become Rammstein-levels of theatric with its live shows, you can sign me right the fuck up now.
