You’d better get your ass to one of these shows, people.
King Diamond hardly ever tours the states, and with his age and recent health issues, this could be North America’s last chance to see him in all his glory.
King Diamond has confirmed what has been rumored for several weeks: the band will return to North America for a full tour this October.
The tour will wrap up with the previously announced performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX, and begins on October 11 in Atlanta, GA. A limited edition King Diamond jacket will be available through the SHOWstubs.com fan club presale, which begins tomorrow, June 24.
Tickets will be on sale online and at box offices nationwide on Friday, June 27.
King Diamond will be joined on stage, of course, by long time band members Andy LaRocque, Mike Weed, Hal Pacino, and Matt Thompson. Additionally, North American fans will be bearing witness to the band’s full European festival stage show. These will be the most ambitious and largest productions in North America in the band’s entire history. A special guest supporting act for the tour will be announced at a later date.
