Let's mix some classics with some forgotten relics:



Welcome Home (Because it is the ultimate opener)

Invisible Guests (Because it just has to follow)

Bye, Bye Missy (Because it is the gem on "Them")

Sleepless Nights (Because it's an anthem)

Medley of A Visit from the Dead / Victimized / Cremation (Because they rock and tie up "Conspiracy")

Eye of the Witch (Because it's the best song on "The Eye" along with "Father Picard", but since Blakk is not in the band I doubt they will ever play "Father Picard")

From the Other Side (Because it was such a TREAT to hear "Dreams" on the last tour, and this song is another forgotten track that deserves a better fate from "Spider's Lullaby")

The Lake (Because nobody knows why it was ever "just" a bonus track - best song from "Fatal Portrait")

Shrine (Because it was the redheaded stepchild of "Abigail", but such a great fucking epic song)

LOA House (Because it is THE most underrated King Diamond song - would KILL live)

The Trees Have Eyes (Because it is the saving grace on "House of God")

Spirits (Because it is the BEST song on any KD album after "Conspiracy")

A Mansion in Darkness (Because it brings the energy right back and kicks it off old school again)

Family Ghost (Because it must be the link in the Abigail story)

- - - - - -

ENCORE

The Oath (Because we need ONE Mercyful Fate song and this one is the ULTIMATE encore with its dark intro)

Black Horsemen (Just because... "Time has come for me to say goodnight")

_______________________________________________________


(Yeah, that's right... Nothing from "The Graveyard",  "Puppet Master" or "Give me your Soul, Please" because not a single song on those albums are worth playing live and I can think of 30 other songs that didn't make it from the first five albums that should come before them. I would be HAPPY to replace any five songs above with five NEW songs from a NEW album, any day of the week!)

I also skipped the medley 'cause I'm not a big fan of that... I'd prefer to hear the songs played entirely!

Anyway:

- Funeral
1. Arrival
2. The Family Ghost
3. Abigail
4. Black Horsemen
- Spare This Life
5. The Storm
6. The Crypt
- Sorry Dear

For this first part I put all songs from the Abigail saga because of the cage! I think that it works as the mansion gates, and it should be used just for that!

7. Eye Of The Witch
8. LOA House
9. The Pact
10. Up From The Grave
-Midnight
11. Magic
12. The Girl In The Bloody Dress

Encore 1

- Out From The Asylum
13. Welcome Home
14. Sleepless Nights
- Let It Be Done

Encore 2

15. The Portrait
- Insanity

I'm so sorry, I had to sacrifice The Spider's Lullabye because of the 15 songs limit, but I'd LOVE to hear the title track!

Father Picard is one of my favorite songs from The Eye! Don't know if it was ever played live (as far as I know, it wasn't), and I can't figure how it could be sung! Too many overdubbed vocal lines!

That's why Livia contributes with harmonies live.

I just think that since Blakk wrote the song, it won't ever make it into the set. Really cool song, though.

Yes, but here they should alternate each other while singing the chorus! The lines start when the previous one is not yet over!
Mmm... It could works great though! I'd be curious! ::)
Also I'd love to hear more songs in which Livia sings some lead lines! It was fantastic when I've seen them playing So Sad back in 2006! This time I hope they'll play The Girl In The Bloody Dress or Give Me Your Soul! :king:

Next friday in San Diego will be my 11th King Diamond band show. Always so great live and one of my favorite bands and performers of modern times. I'm sure they won't have as much time to play as when they headline, and I'm guessing they'll most likely play their classics. It's such a good opportunity for King and the band to get some good exposure here in the US. I honestly don't see them playing too many rare tracks this time around. That being said, looking forward to the gig and to finally seeing the band on a big stage! What would I personally like for them to play? I wouldn't mind a few tracks from the Graveyard, Spider's Lullaby, and House of God. Been a while!  :king:
