King Diamond announce tour, performing ‘Abigail’ in its entirety

Posted by on August 3, 2015

Last week, we speculated about King Diamond playing the classic album Abigail in its entirety, after the band shared a picture of the album cover art captioned:  “ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! Keep an eye out for some major news on August 3rd.” Well, today is August 3rd and we were right!

The band will head on a new tour this fall with the support of Exodus, performing the 1987 album in its entirety. Considering the band just finished touring with the now-extinct Mayhem Festival, the only way to make the announcement attractive for the fans was to do a special set and what’s better than this? A Mercyful Fate reunion, I know, but this is still good enough.

Exodus’ frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza states:

EXODUS is truly honored, excited and flattered to share the stage with King Diamond, and his amazingly talented band! I remember in ’86, we performed some shows together and they were everything you’d expect a King Diamond and EXODUS show to be! Don’t miss this – it’s going to be epic!

The tour will hit the third edition of Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival, taking place between November 13- 15 with King Diamond headlining on the first day of the festival. For the rest of the stops, check the dates below:
