Ghost To Honor Fan That Died During Their Milwaukee Concert By Returning To Finish The Show

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].”

Bullet For My Valentine’s Jason Bowld Says He Turned Down Playing In Ghost

During a chat with Alternative Press, Bullet For My Valentine drummer Jason Bowld revealed that he was approached about joining Ghost in 2016, but he ended up deciding not to take the gig. He said the following about that: “At the end of 2016, I got asked to join another band, which I didn’t want to do—a band called Ghost. It just didn’t feel right.” He also added:

“Bullet came along that same week. I started playing with the band in 2010 as a session drummer, filled in and didn’t think anything else after that. Then Matt called me at the end of 2015. A week turned into a month, a month turned into three months and here I am. It feels like a natural progression. Shit happens in bands all the time, and you just have to move on with it. I’m the new drummer and loving it, quite frankly.”
