Martin Persner On His Departure From Ghost: “Something Horrible Happened”

During an interview with Spain’s GoetiaMedia.com, Martin Persner (Magna Carta Cartel) was asked about his departure from Ghost. He responded by saying “something horrible happened” and he didn’t want to talk about it.

Persner said the following:

“I don’t wanna talk about that. I’m sorry. I understand — of course, everyone wonders — but, to me, basically, it’s a group of five or six very, very good friends, and something horrible happened. And to me, it feels like talking about the divorce of your wife — it’s so horrible — so I’d rather not talk about anything about that in terms of how we feel about each other and stuff, because it’s too personal.”

It is unknown what he is talking about, but it’s worth noting that other former members of the group filed a lawsuit against mastermind Tobias Forge due to them not receiving proper payment for their musical contributions and tours. Persner was not part of the lawsuit, but it’s possible that he could be referring to similar issues.

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].”
