Satanic Pop Metal Band Ghost Announces North American Tour

first_imgSwedish band Ghost will bring their theatrical brand of satanic pop metal back to North America this fall when the group embarks on a lengthy tour in support of their new album, Prequelle.While Ghost has historically been led by frontman Papa Emeritus, the upcoming tour will mark the band’s first outing with a “new” singer named Cardinal Copia. In reality, both Papa Emeritus and Cardinal Copia are alter egos of longtime frontman Tobias Forge, who leads the band through their choreographed “rituals” of accessible-yet-sacrilegious heavy metal.Ghost will kick off their North American outing—which they have dubbed A Pale Tour Named Death—on October 26th with a show at Tulsa, OK’s Cox Business Center Ballroom. The group will then swing through much of the United States and parts of Canada before wrapping up their run with a concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on December 15th. Tickets for the newly announced shows will go on sale to the general public on June 15th, though a fan pre-sale will take place on June 12th.Ghost’s fourth album, Prequelle, was released on June 1st.

first_imgTwo of Rudy Giuliani’s business associates with ties to Florida have been charged with conspiracy and campaign finance violations.The Ukrainian businessmen Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas were detained at Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia on Thursday.Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested on a four-count indictment that includes charges of conspiracy, making false statements to the Federal Election Commission, and falsification of records.Parnas and Fruman were central to Giuliani’s efforts to get government officials in Ukraine to investigate business dealings by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter in the war-torn former Soviet republic.An unnamed Congressman is also referenced in a federal indictment.A court document in a separate case alleges that Parnas and Fruman had bragged about their close relationships with key allies of the president, including Giuliani, former Trump-aide-turned Washington lobbyist Brian Ballard and Nick Ayers, who is the former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.Parnas and Fruman, who have been sent a letter from House Democrats last week requesting documents and deposition, along with Giuliani, recently hired President Trump’ former lawyer John Dowd.Dowd announced in a statement earlier this week that his clients won’t be able to comply with House Democrats’ request for documents and deposition.It is unclear at this time whether this will affect Trump or his administration.Related content:Report: Ukrainian-American businessmen in Florida linked to Rudy Giulianilast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Turkish youngster Cengiz Under marked his Champions League debut for Roma with a well-taken 41st-minute opener after latching onto Edin Dzeko’s clever through ball.KHARKIV, Ukraine, Feb 21 – Shakhtar Donetsk fought back from a goal down as Fred’s free-kick gave the Ukrainians a 2-1 victory over Roma on Wednesday in their Champions League last 16, first leg.Turkish youngster Cengiz Under marked his Champions League debut for Roma with a well-taken 41st-minute opener after latching onto Edin Dzeko’s clever through ball. Shakhtar were much-improved after the break, though, and Facundo Ferreyra ran clear to slot under onrushing goalkeeper Alisson Becker.The hosts completed the turnaround in style with 19 minutes to play, as Fred curled a free-kick in off the crossbar.But an extraordinary goalline block from Roma substitute Bruno Peres to deny Ferreyra in the final minute of injury-time kept the tie finely balanced ahead of the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico on March 13.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Photo/GERALD ANDERSONNAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 28- Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom top scorer Mercy Akinyi believes the trip to London for a week-long training will open doors for her as she seeks to turn professional.Akinyi starred during the youth tournament at the regional and national held at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega where she was the top scorer. But it is at the national where she made her name after hitting five goals to inspire her Plateau Queens side from Nyakach upset favourites Tartar 4-3 in post-match penalties to lift the inaugural Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Girls title and book a ticket to London for a week-long training.“My role model is Cristiano Ronaldo, I like the way he plays and fight for his team because he must score so I want to be like him. I want to make Nyakach proud by scoring in each game and I know I can make it,” Akinyi, who is the first born in a family of six said.Mercy Akinyi from Plateau Queens was the star of the semi final of the Girls Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom against Limuru Starlets. Photo/GERALD ANDERSONPlaying as a number 9 striker, Akinyi, a Form 4 student at Nyakach Girls, was part of the national women’s Under-20 team that was bundled out of the 2018 World Cup Qualifier by Ghana and she is now aspiring to upgrade to the senior team.“Last year we were selected to play for the national U20 team. We started well by beating Botswana and Ethiopia, but unfortunately Ghana eliminated us and it’s because our best players were sitting for the Form 4 exams so the team was not prepared,” she added.“I have dreams of playing abroad and that’s why we played so hard to win this tournament so that we can go to London and expose our talent, who knows maybe some of us might be scouted,” Akinyi, who started playing for Plateau Queens four years ago when she joined the school, revealed.Raised by a single mother, Akinyi is thankful for the cash prize she received from the tournament, a total of Sh145, 000 – Sh30, 000 and 50,000 for the top scorer at the region and national level respectively and Sh10,000 and 45,000 team’s cash prize where they won Sh200,000 at the region and Sh1mn at the national.Plateau Queens celebrating.

We had to train hard and though we were not financially stable, we kept our heads high and here we are today as champions. Since we started the games, we only had one mission and that is to go to London.Chapa Dimba has made a difference in our lives because we can now pay school fees from the money we won and help our families. It has also brought interaction with other footballers from other counties,” Akinyi noted.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
