Forge said "Weâ€™re doing a lot of touring again,â€ He said. â€œOn previous album cycles weâ€™ve done four legs in America and two or three in Europe and repeated. We are going to do a little bit of everywhere. Thereâ€™ll be a little bit of something up in upper Asia, on the far end there. A very well-established country with a lot of pop cultural fascination, and the home of video games.â€
For Aussie fans of Ghost Tobias teased it may extend "in the Oceania world". Tobias revealed Ghost plans for 2023 â€œWeâ€™re going to come out with a little bit of change before [the expanded tour] â€“ good change. Weâ€™re not going to go silent. Some things are public, other things not in public view, but there are a lot of things brewing.â€
