Well, some of you may have already seen it..
King/Livia posted this on twitter.

I know that they are gonna reveal everything when it's time..but I thought would be cool to see what are your guessing about this.
What do you think is the "major news"?

I guess it is probably a world tour..or a new album. (If it's a world tour, I am gonna have a heart attack)

Anyway, really anxious to know what it is

I hope it means a new album myself. Enough touring already we need something new. It has been way too long due to his health issues unfortunately. But now he is back so time for some fresh and hopefully great new music.

Well, I hope it's a new album, but I don't really think it is (no reason in particular, I'm just skeptical lol)

A world tour would be nice though... But I wonder if the Abigail cover is some kind of hint? Maybe they're rereleasing it in some kind of special edition?

Abigail in its entirety tour. Just a guess.

Post by: TwilightKing on July 31, 2015, 07:58:02 am
If it is an Abigail tour, I wonder if it will include songs like Shrine, and if they would do some songs from Abby 2. That would be cool. I do remember them not being able to support an Abigail 2 tour, this would be a perfect opportunity!

Considering Abigail as an album is only 40 minutes in length, this makes sense. (not including Shrine). Abigail 2 is a bit longer, 53 minutes I think, so I don't think it would be that entire album, but an Abigail tour for both albums would be awesome. And I would also suspect that, given the awesome sound and stage production, the time is ripe for a professional DVD.

That is all speculation on my part.

good point.  Specially for the abigail album cover on the post.

abigail + abigail II, would be great on the new stage, with a full theatrical show.


An abigail book or a movie would be awesome. but that's just a dream

After the Massachusetts mayhem show, his Facebook update thanked everyone who attended and said p.s we will be back sooner than you think. Also I thought I read that they would of recorded new album if they didn't take the mayhem tour so I hope we get both!
Title: Re: August 3rd Announcement Speculation thread
Post by: Blackest on August 02, 2015, 05:28:03 am
A new worldwide tour would be awesome! Their last European tour didn't touch many countries! Also a tour supporting Abigail II would be great, since there weren't the chance before! Sure, that "we'll be back sooner than you think" gives cause for hope! ::)
A new album is not a news for making such suspence! We already knew they're working on a new album!
About the DVD I'm too skeptical! It would be a big surprise, but the way things are going, I made my peace with it! :(
If you want me to be 100% realistic... I think it's a new Abigail release featuring the old artwork they recently found!

LA and Las Vegas again for me! There's a city card member pre sale tomorrow followed by a live nation/ticketmaster presale Wednesday. They stopped receiving presale emails way back for some reason, but last year I stumbled across it the day of of the wiltern presale and scored reserved pit tickets which some of you were also able to grab with the code as well. If I get it again I will post it here, but if someone else finds the pre sale code you please post it.

I also noticed some small gaps between the California shows. Can we expect additional shows if those sell out?

 As part of the set, the band will be performing the classic 1987 album Abigail in its entirety!


I think this has been discussed before...the original release of Abigail is under 1hr. so it makes sense some other tracks will be included in the live show.  Throw in Shrine and one or two staples of MF and there you have it.

I think the window between touring NA and recording a new album is too short to make Europe happen, and also not profitable enough when you consider the logistics of the huge stage show. The festivals made sense, to put his name back in the hat before a new album release later on. He will probably tour Europe after a new album release. I am guessing the Abigail tour is just a treat for the "local" fans, and a way to generate a little extra revenue before hitting the studio. It makes a lot of sense. (Again: FLOOOORRRIIIDDDAAAAAAA!!!)

 I do not agree tbh. We got one date at Bloodstock! We get mugged off every time he tours.

I am pretty pissed off about this news as I be a lot of people in Europe are.  king has only just done a USA and NA tour.

As someone who has been a fan for many, many years and who's favorite band is King Diamond, I am OK with them touring for a while, especially if I get to see them live. I discovered King right after his herniated disk took him out of action for all those years, so I'm content with getting my view count up before they take a studio break :king:

Yes, I am but I still stand by my assessment. Europe had a Summer 2013 tour, and then additional festival dates throughout summer 2014, for 18 dates in all. His NA tour in 2014 was 19 dates in all. The Mayhem festival kind of goes outside the normal touring as he is part of a touring bill outside his control. This Abigail tour is a bonus thing before the band resets and goes back in the studio. A European tour is whole other huge project better saved for a new album release. I could be wrong, but I bet you I am not.

Furthermore, just because I am in America, it doesn't mean he is playing in my backyard. By him not coming to Florida, the closest venue is 500 miles away from me, so it might as well be on the other side of the world.

I saw him at Bloodstock and he was amazing! Having said that I really wish he'd come to Scotland, but I don't think he ever will. We have a pretty good scene for traditional and classic metal, but nowhere near enough to fill out a venue that could facillitate King's full stage show, and since he's said he won't perform anywhere where he can't have the full stage show I think we're fucked.  :icon_frown:

Post by: Maggotcrusher666 on August 03, 2015, 04:43:44 pm
So stoked for the St Paul show!  Would have definitely made the trip to chicago for this since I've missed the last two tours and Abigail is my favorite album of all time but its awesome that I don't have to.

Furthermore, just because I am in America, it doesn't mean he is playing in my backyard. By him not coming to Florida, the closest venue is 500 miles away from me, so it might as well be on the other side of the world.

I think people in Europe forget how huge the US is.  In Europe you can hop multiple countries faster than you can get through a couple states.  This will definitely be the last US tour for a while anyways since there are plenty of casual metalheads who after seeing King Diamond once are satisfied and won't bother again.  The Abigail setlist will be the one thing that draws a lot of people back who otherwise would pass.

I understand your point regarding the cost etc of King doing Europe.  I am just gutted.

Ya but EU has a ton of festivals which still are not very big in US.  Also, I remember King saying when asked about locations that he would like to play as many places as possible but it is really a decision that the promoter(s) make and the band essentially goes where they are able.  I too am biased here because I just got to see him at BestBuy in NYC and will again for this one.  I may even travel a bit and try to catch this more than once because ABIGAIL!!!!

Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! would love to, but I don't know yet. I don't have the days to take off, and something else that's gonna be sucking up my money going on. i am considering it, though!

I also agree with Grace. After this tour, it will be New Album, then Europe tour.

for anyone bitching about no new album, no europe tour: CALM YOURSELVES.Be grateful that King is touring hard, sounding great, and showing the world (especially USA where metal is not as popular as it should ), that he is still the KING, his band fucking rocks, and nothing is stopping them from putting on kick-ass shows. Even if I never saw him in concert again, the fact that he is out on the road and still kicking ass live, well, that in itself makes me happy.

So, please calm down (I know it hasn't exploded here yet, but just saying this before it does): I don't want to put on the admin hat and start writing in red.  :cool:

TK...I am flooding this thread but I have to agree with you.  As much as I enjoyed seeing KD in the small venue setting it blows my mind that he is playing to audiences of 2,000 when so many lesser talents fill stadiums ten times that size.

Case in point...I am going to PNC Arts Center in Holmdel NJ Wednesday to see Lamb of God & Slipknot (if they can keep from stabbing each other to death and passing out on stage) to what I'm sure will be a big turnout if not a sold out show.  I don't begrudge them, obviously cause I'm paying my bux to go, but how the general public (at least in the US) does not see KD in a similar fashion is crazy to me.

Same here! Last time they played in Italy was in 2006! Every tour announcement along these last 9 years was a disillusion! Always here, behind the screen, following the video uploading on Youtube day after day, getting excited and crying at the same time! :icon_cry:
Let's hope for the tour supporting the upcoming new album! It will be the case for playing in every European country! :)

Abigail is such a beast vocally, if I hadn't seen him on the last headlining US tour, I wouldn't think it could be pulled off. However I did see him and have no doubt King is more than capable of pulling this off, I dare say it may be better than back in the day. I do hope there are some changes to the stage setup just to bring the Abigail mood more into focus. I am also hoping he mixes up the songs after Abigail is over, maybe play some stuff he didn't play on the last tours. Either way, hotel is booked.

Yeah, I have calmed down now. Still gutted.

However, after his surgery, he is healthy and we can still look forward to new albums and possibly DVDs :)

I hope he comes back to the UK soon.

Long live the King.

Hi all,
Very excited about this tour as I had to pass up Mayhem Fest (would have been going for King and Slayer only).  Atlanta, here I come.  I wanted to share the code you can use for the presale that just started.  It says you need to enter the first 6 digits of your citicard.  Well, I don't have one, but I went to their site and tried the first numbers on their generic card image, and it worked!  :D 412800.  \m/

You actually need a citi card to complete the purchase. It'll let you choose tickets and put them in your cart, but when it's time to check out you'll need a citi card.

Well that sucks!   :devil-smiley-011:  Sorry, I thought I was being clever.  That's really shitty though, what if you did have a citicard but wanted to put the ticket purchase on another card?  I'm getting sick of all these lame presales, extra charges for damn ticketmaster/livenation, etc.  $37 ticket becomes $50.  Well, I know the Atlanta date is all GA, and assume all are, so hopefully the numerous presales won't take up too many slots before the general public on-sale.

After checking pre sale prices, turns out I might be hitting the Vegas show. Sure it falls on a Monday, but $45 for a ticket is a lot better than spending $85 for Los Angeles. We'll see what goes down tomorrow :king:
Title: Re: August 3rd Announcement Speculation thread
Post by: Nibiru on August 04, 2015, 12:46:26 pm
Yeah, $85 for the LA show is kinda pricey. Last time they sold out of pit tickets online quick. And then we're making people pay extra at the show to "upgrade" to pit ticket for an extra charge. All these new rules and presales do make it harder to enjoy our favorite bands. I plan on going to LA for sure, but I might check out the Vegas show as well! Hopefully they don't sell out while I'm at work.

I bought my tickets from "Eventful" which led me to a site called "Vivid Seats"... Boy, did I ever get brutally raped in the prices... That was at 8:00am this morning, and I paid $137 a ticket.. my total since I bought them for me and my friends came out to $900+. A few hours later Live Nation sent me the email for the pre-sale code... Way fucking cheaper... Oh well, it's worth it, just sucks that I basically paid double per ticket, and I'm pretty much broke for a while- I Just didn't want to risk it and wait for Live Nation, because I had no clue when they were going to offer it, and no way am I missing King.

You guys will not be disappointed if you go to Vegas. I'm heading there again for Ghost on Halloween so I figure why not again for King. The day after the 2014 LA show I was itching to see King again so about 4 hours before doors I went for it. I had gone to the HOB Vegas for the first time a few months before for Ghost and loved the venue. It felt intimate and the crowd was awesome especially for King. Kings stage barely fit at the Vegas HOB now that I think about it as Livia was a little tucked away, but it didn't affect the show. I'm really looking forward to seeing the band again there.  :icon_mrgreen:

I went to the LA and Vegas shows last year. And bought the VIP tickets with the jacket for both of them. Vegas is about a 5hr drive from where I live in San Diego. LA is only about 2hrs away. I kinda liked the atmosphere of the Vegas show better as well. I'd like to see both again this year. Gonna try and buy tix today! Hopefully.

No luck for Pit at the Wiltern for me. Hopefully others had luck. I thought I was going to secure pit with 3 presale opportunities today. Me and my little bro have both been trying since 7:00 as well using the app on our phones as well as our desktop. I'm hoping theres still some left for friday. We need two pit tickets or 1 so I can at least get him in the pit. If we're able to get ahold of a spare on friday I'll gladly offer it up here.

One thing I might try if I get shut out of pit at Wiltern on Friday is to buy a floor spot and try and upgrade at the show.  Last two shows I went to there (King Diamond and Faith No More) they were upgrading people for a fee (20 dollars each I believe).  The same people you get your Pit wristband from if you had a pit ticket.

I hate the palladium. Filthy, rude security and horrible sound. I can't say much for the orpheum as I've never been there, but I'll take the reserved seating over GA. I'm at the age where I like to enjoy the show without having to look over my shoulder for some lunatic swinging his fist or getting kicked in the head by a crowd surfer. I did make it to font row at the last King show at the Palladium. It was uncomfortable but worth it... great experience! I hope the sound is good at the Orpheum.

That's not how it works.  There are brokers (licensed) and they get tickets from the ticket outlets (Ticketmaster, AXS, Live Nation, etc) and try to sell them for inflated prices as they can.  What doesn't sell often goes back to the outlet to be put on mainstream sale again, often just days before the event.  That's why great seats for so many "sold out" shows show up on Ticketmaster the day before the show.

Also, Stub Hub is a great ticket resale marketplace.  My dad and I have sold extra/unneeded tickets on there several times.  It takes the hassle out of using something like Craigslist or eBay.
Title: Re: August 3rd Announcement Speculation thread
Post by: Cornloaf on August 06, 2015, 11:23:40 am
The other good thing about Stubhub is that you aren't going to get scammed with fake tickets.  But I agree that the brokers do snatch up a bunch of the tickets and sell them for way too much on Stubhub when the shows get sold out on AXS, Ticketmaster, etc.  Last year the tickets to King Diamond in San Francisco were close to $200 each... sometimes they surged even higher.  Right now the GA tickets for Ghost are $196 each.  Ridiculous.

Yeah stubhub is licensed brokers and common people selling tickets.  Anybody is allowed to sell on stubhub.  I love buying tickets there.  I get tickets for many events much cheaper than box office price.  I bought a Stones ticket with a face value of $600 and I paid $80 for it.  I was about 30 feet from Keith all night.

While I am very excited- and grateful- about the tour, unfortunately, I have had the same experience as last year getting Wiltern tickets: confusion and lack of information from the band about presale info for the die hard fans, and once figured out on our own- shut out of the best seats in the house. Just paid $108 for 2 GA "seats". I'm not blaming the band or management as I realize that they have little to zero control over how tickets are sold. But, as a HUGE supporter of this band for nearly 30 years- I'm disappointed that I am once again unable to get the seats I want- even being diligent and willing to pay for it. Ok, griping over. Again, not blaming the band- just the situation. I'm still going (hey, I understand that I'm very lucky to even be "getting" to see this really exclusive tour!), and it's going to be great, I'm sure. Considering that my friend and I were most excited to see The Black Horsemen live on the last tour- and King was so sick with food poisoning he couldn't perform it- this will be an even bigger event.

piecemeal,

I had several tabs open each on two different PCs and when my spot came up in line I saw nothing that would have prevented me from maxing out each purchase, which I believe was 8 tix.  So in a theater that holds 2100 people I alone *could* have bought 60-70 tix this morning.
I didn't because reselling tix for profit just isn't my game, but it was tempting!!

I see they added a new York date, so they are playing two nights there in a row. Now add a damn Seattle or at least Portland date so the people up here can get a chance to see this show! November first is open right before San fran!

I'm tempted to go to that extra show....although if it's going to be the same set list it may night be worth it. Something to consider. I'm surprised they added another New York date considering they didn't even do that last tour when Philadelphia had no scheduled show. People must not want to miss this one! :king:

Not to go all DVD/Blu-Ray crazy, but it would be the perfect opportunity. And certainly a tour worth documenting...
"Abigail" was my introduction to KD, back in 1987, and i still think it's the KD album above them all...

I would prefer BY FAR an "Abigail+" live CD/DVD package to a new album. This live album can also feature the recently discovered artwork, and maybe they can even fly Michael Denner to NYC to play on a song or two.

I hate the palladium. Filthy, rude security and horrible sound. I can't say much for the orpheum as I've never been there, but I'll take the reserved seating over GA. I'm at the age where I like to enjoy the show without having to look over my shoulder for some lunatic swinging his fist or getting kicked in the head by a crowd surfer. I did make it to font row at the last King show at the Palladium. It was uncomfortable but worth it... great experience! I hope the sound is good at the Orpheum.

 I am 100% with you on this , Palladium is a disaster ...... almost never sounds good & i agree Security is total bullshit in that place ...
   I am all for the reserved seats , now if someone is in my seat , i can tell them to Move along .

Just to speculate some more, the Best Buy Theater in NYC was formerly known as the Nokia Theater Times Square. Look around for live DVDs filmed there and you'll see there are quite a few. It's in addition a modern venue. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if both NYC shows get filmed. Let's keep our fingers crossed! :WiNkA:

I've spoke to some fans and and found all kind of age restrictions. Vegas is 18+, Denver 16+, and no age restriction in Philly. It must be a thing with the venue owners and their liquor license.

Age restrictions are done by venues, we have no control over them.
However, I would call the venue and ask about it. Most of the time the age restriction is only for children without escort. I would imagine your son would be able to attend together with you (but not alone). :)

Let me know how it goes!

Some venues have the bar limited to a certain section. I know at the Roseland Theatre, in Portland, the bar upstairs will serve alcohol, which requires you to show your ID to get up the stairs to the balcony section. The bar downstairs will serve water and soda. I saw King there quite a few years back with my father. He had an expired ID and they refused to let him upstairs because the bar was up there. Some venue have alcohol served in the main area and just refuse entry to anyone under 21. It's completely up to the venue and their layout.

That is true, it also can be for curfew, or just the promoter/venue wanting it to be 21+.

ok I called and asked if I could talk to someone about age restriction at shows. The lady asked what would you like to know? I explained the situation to her and she said if it says it on the ticket then that's the way it is. I asked no exceptions? she said no.
I guess I could call back tomorrow and ask to speak to the owner. I'm just afraid if they say yeah sure bring him on the phone and then drive 300 miles to find out he can't get in and the owner is not there that night. It's got a recipe for disaster.
I showed the tickets to my son and explained to him what the deal is. He understands. He seem disappointed, not devastated. Well at least not on the outside. He's a good kid.

My mind stopped working for a minute when I found out, my mind stopped working for a few minutes as I was too giddy to function properly. My only thought was "King Diamond is coming to my home town!!!" King, Livia and company, thank you guys for adding San Diego to the list! I know you get this a lot, but you guys are my heroes! Your music helped me put my life back on track when I was down in the gutters and going somewhere bad. I'm glad that throughout these past North American tours I've been able to give back to you guys by buying tickets and merch! Seeing your live performances is a genuine treat, one of the greatest performances I've ever laid eyes on. Once again, thank you for giving us San Diegans a chance to witness your incredible live performance! I'll see you on the 4th of November!

I most likely have to work that day/afternoon, but sure. Maybe we can designate a place for everyone from the Coven that's going to the SD show to meet up at before hand. I'm pretty sure the venue they're playing at doesn't serve alcohol. So maybe we can meet up at a small restaurant or brewery nearby that allows all ages and also serves drinks. Either way, cool to meet you brother! It's going to be one hell of a show!

That sounds like a good idea! I think Crazee Burger is near by, never been there myself but I've seen a lot of commercials for it back in the day. Maybe we can get a small headcount of who's going to the show and take a vote. Either way, stoked that King is coming to San Diego for this tour! Sure Mayhemfest was kick ass, but to me it didn't feel like a COMPLETE King Diamond show. Still an incredible show, nonetheless. Can't wait for this one though, Abigail entirely filmed live?

It's not the result of our lack of trying. Promoters in those areas were simply not interested in bringing us. Same for Florida, Toronto, or many of the other places I get messages about.
They don't believe in high enough demand, and so they turn down our booking agent and our offers.

Honestly I am getting a little tired of receiving angry and disrespectful messages both in public and private about how the band "are assholes" and "fuck you for not playing where I live".

Please go to your local promoter and request us, make them aware of the demand. This is out of our hands!

I understand both sides.
It's a bit disappointing for for fans where your city (or country) is left behind..
btw, I am sure it's disappointing for the band not being able to attend every fan. People who have met the band always says that all of the members are very kind and attentive to the fans, so I am sure that they would love to play everywhere if a promoter is willing to bring them.

but I guess Satans KINGdom was not angry with the band. Looks like he is angry with the situation itself.
I made the mistake of writing a message that could be disrpectful with the band, but I was never angry with the band. I knew it was not King's fault. I was just angry with the situation and sometimes when you send a written message you may express yourself poorly and be misinterpreted.

But SK, don't be angry. I am sure you will be able to see King soon, as well as me.

I understand the frustration. We'd love to go play anywhere, where people want us. We'd go play the north pole for damn sake, ha!

But when you receive messages day in and day out that point out what "fuckers you are", it sucks.
Like yesterday, when we posted the San Diego and Pittsburgh announcements. We are very excited to announce these shows, anticipate pressing the post button, and read happy comments.
Would you like to know what the first comment was? The very first?
I quote:
"Seriously fuck you and the no vancouver dates. Assholes"

Of course one comment like that doesn't matter. We get to read plenty of posts from very happy and super excited people. (points up to wildchildelsner)

But some just forget that there is another person on the receiving end, behind the computer, who just worked their ass off to make something happen (even if the result didn't affect your city).

Edit: I'd just like to point out that in our camp, WE are the ones who read all fan comments, be it here, Facebook, private messages, etc. Not a management company employee who might or might not even know what you're about.

I must agree with you. it's probably very frustating receiving this kind of message.
That makes me think again about that message I left some time ago about the guitar giveaway.  :-[

Anyway, I am totally better about this. maybe I will see king live someday, maybe not. I am a lot happy with the DVD and I have a different plan about seeing you guys live. It has a very small chance it may happen because there are too many people who needs to be involved (including the band, of course), but if everything goes according the plan, it's gonna be awesome :smileok:


Also, about you being the ones who answers everything, I always wondered: King has an account here but he barely logs in. Does he use your account sometime to check what's going on? Or he doesn't log in personally but you keep him up to date.

I thought maybe he is not much a computer guy, so you are the one to read him the messages and he tells you what to post.

I don’t get how someone can say “Fuck you” to the band over not being able to see them, haha it's so contradicting. You’d think the extent of fandom that evokes that kind of passion would walk hand in hand with respect.
People were getting so pissed at the Wiltern show because the band took long to come out (Food poisoning night), and I stood there with two severely herniated discs in agony, me and my friends worried, only hoping nothing bad happened to the band haha ^^ The things that are out of our hands don't find hold suddenly by being a belligerent asshole. "Fuck King Diamond!" *Poof* -King Diamond appears-

But, being that it is the metal scene- I’m sure those particular people are more upset that they’re missing out on a potential metal gathering and not so much missing out on the band.

This right here :) That's why his comments/replies usually get posted under my account name.

However, he does check the Facebook comments personally.

No disrespect meant for the band, just pissed off I wont get to experience this show. If it were a tour like the 2014 tour, I'd be pissed also, but not as bad as I sm about missing this one. Abigail ranks right up there with one of my all time favorite album, and getting a chance to see it performed live will never happen again. So yeah I'm pissed off! If I had more time under my belt with my new job I'd take the time off and drive down to San Francisco.

You say contact promoters, most of us would probably have no clue who they would be. I can call the moore theater and yell at them? With a hundred theaters and venues in the area, which ones are we supposed to know to contact? Tell us who said they didn't want to bring the show up here and I'll be happy to give them a piece of my mind.

I understand the frustration. We'd love to go play anywhere, where people want us. We'd go play the north pole for damn sake, ha!

But when you receive messages day in and day out that point out what "fuckers you are", it sucks.
Like yesterday, when we posted the San Diego and Pittsburgh announcements. We are very excited to announce these shows, anticipate pressing the post button, and read happy comments.
Would you like to know what the first comment was? The very first?
I quote:
"Seriously fuck you and the no vancouver dates. Assholes"

Of course one comment like that doesn't matter. We get to read plenty of posts from very happy and super excited people. (points up to wildchildelsner)

But some just forget that there is another person on the receiving end, behind the computer, who just worked their ass off to make something happen (even if the result didn't affect your city).

Edit: I'd just like to point out that in our camp, WE are the ones who read all fan comments, be it here, Facebook, private messages, etc. Not a management company employee who might or might not even know what you're about.

Sometimes I was fustrated, I know king maybe never comes to my Country, but I am very happy with the blue ray news, I will buy it, and see king the best closer that I can

Thank you King and Livia for this chance, to the people in the rest of the world that can see you finally like real life

Hi Livia, just wanted to thank you again for bringing the show to San Diego! However, I noticed something about the San Diego date, the Facebook post mentioned that Exodus is not playing that night. Does that mean that you guys will have a longer set, or will there be another opening band that night? Like a possible local opener? Thanks!

I would imagine there will be a local band opening, but I don't know who.

I am at a complete loss to understand how disrespectful people can be! Pming angry message? To the band? Calling them assholes and fuckers? :icon_eek: It's beyond my understanding! >:D I would have never imagined that!
I can understand (only too well :( ) the frustration of those who can't see the show because they'll not play in their country! Last time they played in Italy was in 2006 (I'm still dreaming of that magic night! Without exaggeration, the best day of my life!), and all I could do during these past 9 years is follow the tour on Youtube (so you can only imagine how excited I am for the DVD :icon_biggrin: )! But I know it's not King's fault!
I'd just like to point out that in our camp, WE are the ones who read all fan comments, be it here, Facebook, private messages, etc. Not a management company employee who might or might not even know what you're about.
And let me tell you that it's a very special thing! This simple thing means so much! And I think I speak for everyone here when I say that you are the band who cares about his fans the most! And I can't but thank you 1000 times! \m/

Anyway, I'm getting the impression that King Diamond became more popular year after year! Shows are growing bigger than ever, and so the stage scenography! Don't know how someone who works in music business like a promoter could not be aware of this! Just take a look on the internet! Shouldn't be the first thing to do when you get a request by a band? :icon_confused:

I'm just glad that one of my favorite bands is still playing shows and putting out releases!
To change the subject a bit... On the last update video where King announced the 3rd New York gig he says they will be playing 3 Mercyful Fate songs on the other half of the setlist for this tour! I would imagine Evil and Come to the Sabbath will be 2 of them. But what do you guys think will be the 3rd song?! My first guess would be, Doomed by the Living Dead! Cause it's just such a classic and very recognizable song. Or maybe Curse of the Pharaohs cause it was on Guitar Hero Metallica. Also King mentioned he will play 2 older songs with intros that they haven't played in a long time. It's always cool to hear the older and more rare tracks in my opinion. I'm guessing, Spider's Lullabye, and Sarah's Night! Though I'd love to hear The Jonah, or The Portrait. No matter the setlist, it's going to be a killer show! What are your thoughts?!

Oh yeah, I totally forgot that! :icon_biggrin: I guess (and hope) it's The Oath! Vocally complicated and very evocative! A hell of song, in the true sense of the word! :D I hope for The Uninvited Guest too! I love the pumped guitars on that! \m/ Those would be my choice!

As I said many times, I hope they'll play more newer songs! But if I have to choose some old stuff never played in a long time I also would go for The Portrait and The Jonah!

Oh I can't wait to see the reactions to those songs, after we play the first gig and setlists get posted :) So exciting!

I know I shouldn't ask any spoiler, but I really wonder if you're planning to play a little dfferent setlist in some of the shows and then put everything in the DVD! If you do, it will be awesome if you'll mix the whole thing and present it like a big extended show! :icon_biggrin:

they are a good band, I saw them open here in Seattle for death angel and megadeth I think. Might have been exodus and testament LOL IDK but I bought one of their records and thought they were really good.

Without a doubt the best damn show i've ever been to! I was finally front and center. King noticed my tattoo and thanked me several times throughout the show and at the end. I felt like one of those crazy Beatle's fans geeking out HAHA. I also caught (Kind of) Matt's drumstick, which just made things even more memorable, as I've never caught anything at any damn show ever!!! haha. I recently damaged my herniated disc again, so this show was also agonizing like last years, but I didn't feel any pain while King was playing. There were moments where I would zone out at the set and the performance and almost forget where I was. So incredible!!! Everyone was so top notch! I wish I could make it again tonight!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the whole King Diamond team! You're all fucking amazing!!!  :icon_eek: :king:
