PHOENIX — Swedish rock band Ghost announced Monday it’s coming back to haunt a Phoenix amphitheater this summer.

Ghost is coming to Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre (formerly Ak-Chin Pavilion) on Sept. 8 as part of its Re-Imperatour USA 2023 summer tour.

Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Tobias Forge will step onto the Phoenix stage as the leader of the group, known as none other than Papa Emeritus IV. His supporting group members are otherwise called the Nameless Ghouls.

The theatrical experience brought on by the band will also feature Swedish melodic death metal band Amon Amarth.

The last time the band was in Phoenix was March 2022 at Footprint Center, according to Setlist.fm.

Among the top songs the band has created are “Mary on a Cross,” “Square Hammer,” and Grammy-nominated “Call Me Little Sunshine.”
