Ghost and Pope Francis are in a game of one-upmanship it seems.
The Pope booked a gig in Philly so Ghost tried to book a gig in Philly on the same day.
Ghost put out a record last month, so now the Pope is going to put out a prog rock record.
The Pope wanted nuns present when he spoke and now Ghost want nuns present. Metal Insider reports that at last night's gig, Papa Emeritus said from the stage “How about this Frankie guy. I heard that he wanted all the nuns to be there when he spoke. We need nuns.” He wasn't kidding! Today, Ghost posted the following listing:
“Ladies of the World!
We are looking for females to serve as NUNS at every gig, since we usually rely on local talent everywhere we go.
So, if this is something for YOU –
– YOUR NAME
– DATE OF BIRTH (which we will need since you will be handing out alcohol, so you have to be 21 years old)
Important : Write THE CITY IN WHICH YOU WISH TO PARTAKE in the header”
Nuns just wanna have fun after all! If you think you are qualified enough to apply to be a Ghost nun, here are their upcoming tour stops. SOMEBODY SEND PICTURES!
