Last night, the Ghost Inside held their first live performance since the band’s tragic bus crash in 2015. The band performed their “one night” only show at The Shrine in Los Angeles with opening acts including This Wild Life, Trade Wind and Wage War’s Cody Quistad.
Check out footage and reactions from the show below!
In late 2015, the Ghost Inside were involved in a serious bus accident that claimed the lives of their driver and everyone in the other vehicle. Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk lost his leg from the accident, and the rest of the band and crew members were hospitalized in critical condition. The band survived the accident but have faced an arduous road to recovery since then.
The announcement of the “one night” only show marked the band’s first performance in four years, with tickets selling out five minutes after the announcement.

For fans who couldn’t make it to the show, the band held a pop-up shop with select merch outside the venue.
The band had plenty of support from fellow artists leading up to the event and following the show.
We’ve covered @theghostinside ‘Wide Eyed’ three years ago and sell it on iTunes (NOT available now) for their medical expenses. Today is the BIG DAY for heavy music industry.
