Holy shit, yes. I'm more excited for Blood Ceremony than I am for Ghost...fantastic band.
I've lost track of just about everything.

Can't speak for Warbringer though
No way in shit has Ghoul played a 75 minute set.
I've seen them play festival, one off headlining and headlining tour dates and they ranged from 30 minutes to at most barely 50. Same goes for the time I saw Impaled, and all the setlists I have seen for them.

I can't imagine any 'club level' metal band playing for over an hour. Short of arena bands and Danzig I can't think of a show I've seen where an extreme metal band has played more than an hour. 30-45 is standard in all of my experience.

Ghost could easily do the record and the cover and have a satisfying headlining set.

If Ghost plays a 10 song set, then I'll be happy to hear everything they have. If they decide to play more than that, it will cool, but I won't know any of the songs..

Having seen both Ghost and Blood Ceremony... Ancient Vvisdom are the best live band on this tour.

Really? Crowbar came here and played 55 minutes... so did Premonition 13. The Quill came over from Sweden and played 45 minutes as a headliner... seriously, it happens all the time. Especially on package tours.

Ghost have however said they're working on a new album at the moment, so chances are you'll get everything off Opus Eponymous and a new song or two.

21/1 The Pretty Reckless
22/1 Black Sabbath
29/1 Black Sabbath
31/1 Black Sabbath
