Swedish metal band GHOST have unfortunately had to cancel their performance at Download Festival due to singer Papa Emeritus III becoming ill.
GHOST were set to perform at Download‘s Maverick Stage at 6:25pm today, however the band released a statement saying:
“We regret to inform you that due to a severe case of laryngitis, GHOST will not be able to perform at Download 2016.”
There is no word on any replacement acts, or if Papa‘s illness will effect any future shows, which have been in support of GHOST‘s latest album Meliora, which came out last year.
