Mercyful Fate announces first North American headlining tour in over two decades.
Heavy metal icons Mercyful Fate today announce their first North American headlining tour in over two decades. The journey will commence on October 25th in Dallas, Texas and weave its way through fourteen cities, closing on November 16th in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour follows the band’s stunning headlining performance at this year’s edition of Psycho Las Vegas.
Vocalist King Diamond comments, “These will be the first Mercyful Fate concerts in North American theaters in over twenty 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,” says King Diamond.
Support for Mercyful Fate will be provided by Kreator and labelmates, Midnight.
