Ghost have released the official live video for their surprise viral hit, ‘Mary On A Cross.” The performance footage was filmed on September 6 at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida during the summer 2022 leg of the band’s “Imperatour.”
In a message shared alongside the video, the band wrote, “We wish to inform you that all good things must come to an end. Although the US Imperatour will wrap this weekend we wanted to leave you with this token of our appreciation for your continued support. Watch ‘Mary on a Cross – Live from Tampa 2022.’”
The band recently landed their first-ever song on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs chart with “Mary on a Cross,” which entered at No.90. Originally released in 2019 as a B-side, “Mary On A Cross” has been experiencing a resurgence after going viral on TikTok. The track appeared in a clip on the platform that featured an edit of scenes from ‘Stranger Things’ centered around characters Will Byers (played by Noah Schnapp) and Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), which has since been viewed millions of times on TikTok and inspired many other creators to soundtrack their TikTok’s with the song. To celebrate the success of the “Mary On A Cross”, Ghost released a “slowed + reverb” version of the song. The “slowed + reverb” version is also now available for creators to use on TikTok.
