Ghost frontman Papa Emeritus IV threw out the first pitch today (September 22) at the White Sox game in Chicago. The band is currently on tour after releasing their fifth studio album, Impera, in March, and after performing Wednesday night in Peoria, Illinois, the vocalist found himself at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, where the White Sox played the Cleveland Guardians.
Impera isn’t the only recent success that Ghost have been celebrating. Earlier this week, the band’s 2019 song “Mary on a Cross” skyrocketed onto the Billboard Hot 100 after gaining traction on TikTok in original and edited versions. While six of the band’s albums have made it onto the Billboard 200 albums chart, “Mary on a Cross” is their first entry on the Billboard Hot 100.
