Ghost previously cut their May 31 show at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI short after a man named Jeff Fortune collapsed and later died. Now, the band have announced that they will be returning to the venue to honor the fan by finishing the concert on Halloween (October 31). Those who attend will be able to buy a special shirt, featuring Cardinal Copia and Fortune wearing Michael Myers costumes, and proceeds from it will go towards Fortune’s family.
The Pabst Theater Group sent the following e-mail to ticket holders that went to the May show:
“Dear GHOST fans,
GHOST will return to the Riverside Theater on October 31 to complete its concert that was cut short earlier this year. The May 31 show was canceled at the close of ‘Act I’ due to the tragic collapse and subsequent death of GHOST fan Jeff Fortune. Dedicating the October 31 performance to Mr. Fortune and his family and friends, GHOST will perform the hour-long ‘Act II’ for ticket holders who attended the original date.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with GHOST taking the stage at 8:00 p.m. The show will start a bit early so you may enjoy the previously missed ‘Act II’ of GHOST’s concert and still have plenty of time to go trick-or-treat or party afterwards.
Exclusively for this performance, GHOST has created a special T-shirt that features the likenesses of Cardinal Copia and Jeffrey Fortune clad in Michael Myers costumes. The T-shirt will be available at the venue’s merch tables, with all proceeds going to Mr. Fortune’s family.
We would like to invite you to attend this very special GHOST performance at the Riverside Theater on October 31.
This performance is for attendees of the May 31 show only. If you would like to attend, you will receive the same ticket location you had for the earlier GHOST performance at no charge. To save your spot, the original ticket buyer must RSVP to the Riverside [by September 30].”
