Rock Report 01/10/23 – Ghost, Cage The Elephant, and Metallica !

By now, Ghost fans are quite used to change within the band and there’s always a new or unexpected twist lurking somewhere. It appears 2023 will not be immune to this as leader Tobias Forge tells Metal Hammer that “good change” is coming before the band embarks on their next series of tours in support of last year’s Impera album.

Last Thursday night (Jan. 5), Cage the Elephant vocalist Matt Shultz – who has no prior criminal record –was arrested for unlawfully having two guns in his possession, Consequence reported. According to Deadline, he has now posted “$10,000 bail and awaits a February hearing in New York City.”

If streaming Metallica’s final concert of 2022 wasn’t enough to tide you over until 72 Seasons finally hits the streets, the band is following up with even more streams of live shows for fans to enjoy.  Starting this weekend (Jan. 8), Metallica will be streaming rare performances from the “Black Album” era via nugs.net.
