Heavy metal icons Mercyful Fate announce their first North American headlining tour in over two decades. The journey will commence on October 25 in Dallas, Texas and weave its way through 14 cities, closing on November 16 in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour follows the band’s stunning headlining performance at this year’s edition of Psycho Las Vegas.
Vocalist King Diamond shares his thoughts:
“These will be the first Mercyful Fate concerts in North American theaters in over 20 years. Memories of a lifetime. Your special chance to see MERCYFUL FATE with the full European festival production, but up close and personal. You cannot miss this… I hereby respectfully invite you to Come To The Sabbath, by which you may free your soul and feast with us in the dark of Night. Witches and Demons, you may come as you are! Satanic Regards – King Diamond 666.”
Support for Mercyful Fate will be provided by Kreator and labelmates, Midnight.
