Hide your kids. Cardinal Copia (formerly known as Papa Emeritus) is bringing Ghost to Clearwater.

The Swedish hard-rock band announced a massive N. American tour today, and it stops at Ruth Eckerd Hall on November 25 (that's the Sunday after Thanksgiving). It's the band's first show in the area since it opened for Iron Maiden last summer, and Ghost's first headlining show in Tampa Bay since the band's local debut at The Ritz. Ghost is supporting its brand new album Prequelle, which it released last month.
