This past Saturday (30th), Ghost wrapped up their tour in Gothenburg, SWE in support of 2015’s Meliora. Since 2010’s Opus Eponymous, there have been three Papa Emeritus, coinciding with each album. Last night, midway into show-closer “Monstrance Clocks,” Papa II was “kidnapped,” and a different pope came out. A more elderly version of Papa, he described himself as “Papa Emerius Zero.” It wasn’t too long ago that the band revealed they are working on a new album, which is expected to arrive sometime next Spring. Therefore, only time will tell who or what the next Papa will look like.
Footage of his retirement can be seen below:
