Win A Ticket To See Ghost @ Best Buy Theater On 5/17/2014

Poster - Ghost at BBT - 2014

The Details: The band is shrouded in mystery and fronted by the sinister presence known as Papa Emeritus II and their shows are more along the lines of “rituals” than a simple concert appearance and now the band is bringing this ominous event to the beautiful Best Buy Theater. They’ll be bringing along King Dude as support and thanks to the marketing wizards at AEG, PiercingMetal is going to put a couple of lucky fans into the sure to be sold out show. I’m excited because this is also my first time seeing the band and I’m ready to be among the converted during “Tour Zero Year 2014”. Read on.

When and Where: Saturday, May 17th @ Best Buy Theater (1515 Broadway, NYC)

To Participate: This is a big one for sure so obviously I am going to make this a little difficult. Give me three good, no make that great reasons why you need to be at this show and I will be selecting a couple of the responses and letting them know right below their submission. Just saying that they are great is not good enough so convince me on why you need to be here. Added points if you have never seen them before (and don’t feel bad because I am in the same boat with you like I said earlier). Please enter only once (as no edits will be honored) and put your full real name and a working email address in the comment form (but not in your comment for privacy reasons) to be sure you can be reached if necessary with show details. Guest and Anonymous submissions will not count and this contest will end when the supplies run out. Bring it on.

Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, Twitter Followers and Facebook Page Likers you should know that we tend to look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. I will say that the biggest restriction on this one is that if you have won anything over the last couple of months that your chances are less likely because we surely cannot have the same people winning again and again.

  1. 3 Reasons I Need to Be at Ghost:
    1. I think about death (the actual thing, not the band, although I think about them too) quite a lot lately as I am getting older and my body is aging. I often think about is there something after? Do I become ethereal energy (a ghost)? Can I be everywhere or nowhere and where mt friends amd family are, but they can’t touch or feel me although my presence is there?
    2. I saw them their first time in the US at MDF and thought they were amazing! For some reason I never got too into them again after, and really want to give them another shot.
    3. With Napalm Death playing a warehouse in Queens Fri nt, Godzilla attacking the US this weekend, and now Ghost coming to haunt the city, this would just make the cherry on top of a grindy weekend of total darkness and destruction with my friends! All metal talk aside, on a serious note, these are important, because with everyone getting older, how many of these do we really get before we all become ghosts ourselves?
    4. And a bonus fourth reason Ken Piercing Metal rules!

    1. Okay Brandon you have sold me and not because of the “Ken rules” part because so many try to swoon me like that LOL; That said, congrats on winning one of our tickets to see Ghost at The Best Buy Theater on Saturday 5/17. Please stay tuned to the comments for the details on how you claim this that evening.

  2. Three reasons to be at the Ghost show:
    – I’ve been a long time fan of the band since 2011 and I attended their 1st NYC show at “The Studio” Webster Hall in 2012. Since then, I’ve seen this band’s popularity grow by a lot. A big surprise was seeing them sell out Webster Hall (upstairs, where its capacity is over 1,500)and I wouldn’t be surprised if they get to sell out the Best Buy Theater during the day of the show.

    – I never thought that their debut album “Opus Eponymous” would be surpassed by their 2nd full-length “Infestissumam”. Big surprise! Usually (at least for me) it takes an album or two (or even never) for a band to compose a better album than the one before, but I was proven wrong. Big props to Ghost! Would love to hear their material once again!

    – Live performance is very fundamental for me. A great live act ALWAYS catches my attention and Ghost never sets to fail on this one. Their unholy attire, blend with their classical blasphemous rock music not only attracts one single audience, but various ones that aren’t only in the metal scene.

    1. Yes Jesse really great stuff even though I am slightly jealous about you seeing them so much more than me. Sigh. I guess I cannot be everywhere even though it appears as such sometimes. That said congrats on winning one of our tickets to the Ghost show at Best Buy Theater on 5/17. Please stay tuned to the comments for one from me that lines out the details on how you claim it.

  3. Hey that about does it for the Ghost contest so please no more submissions. Congratulations to our winners for their entries. On the night of the show, go to the venue box office with ID and ask for the AEG List – There might be a PiercingMetal reference as well. Should you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for a venue manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with AEG Marketing and PiercingMetal.com – I am hitting this show as well and really am looking forward to it.
