The Popestar Tour was a concert tour by Swedish heavy metal band Ghost in support of their second EP, Popestar. The EP was released on September 16, which coincided with the first show of the tour in Rochester, New York. They toured Europe in the spring of 2017, followed by a tour as openers for Iron Maiden. During the final show on September 30, 2017, Papa Emeritus III was dragged off stage during the final song.

The album worked both as a continuation of the pop sound explored on Infestissumam but also containing a healthy amount of elements from the band's debut album Opus Eponymous. Furthermore, the album sounded like a band finally finding their footing and boasted more confidence than ever before- tracks like "He Is" and "Majesty" sounded like more fully realized versions of tracks from their first two albums, whereas "Mummy Dust" and "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" were the blindsiders that proved to us that Ghost is here to stay.

I bought this after only having heard "Square Hammer" but the rest of the songs (all covers) are all very well done, and can be downright haunting. It's easy to see the influence these bands have on Ghost's sound. Sonically I find it excellent: clear and clean. The packaging is pretty bare. There's an outer sleeve, media, and an all black inner sleeve. The ultra clear vinyl looks beautiful. As stated on Discogs but not anywhere I could find on the vinyl or packaging, this is a 45RPM pressing.
