Ghost Concert Plans Foiled By The Pope (Week in Review): Ghost News

On Thursday Ghost Concert Plans Foiled By The Pope was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Ghost have been forced to reschedule a concert in Philadelphia due to security measures that will be in effect for a visit by the Pope. As a result of the lockdown, Ghost's September 26 date at Union Transfer has been rescheduled to September 29.

Philadelphia is hosting the World Meeting Of Families on the September 26 and 27 weekend, an event that will see much of the city shut down to traffic, including all the major highways in and out, bridges, and a several square mile grid of downtown restricted to travel on foot.
