Abigail tour 2016
« on: May 10, 2016, 03:43:07 AM »
Hello guys,

It's been like 5 years away from this forum, so if this topic has already been mentioned before just let me know.

So, I'm finaly gonna see King Diamond In London in june and, as we all know, the performed album will be abigail. So my question is; Are we going to hear songs from other albums as well? or is it purely based in the Abigail album?

I'm asking because the show might be very short since the album's length is only 45 minutes approx. I hope that songs from "conspiracy" or "them" are included in the upcoming shows.

Kind regards ;)
This is heaven and hell!!!!

Yup. What bolivarmaxi said. First half is greatest hits, and then all of "Abigail".  :)

Surely King can't play in England without playing "Tea"?

I didn't heard about a M&G, but there is a competition - promoted by Metal Hammer Magazine - where you can apply and "Win A King Diamond Guitar", and if you win you can meet the band before the show.   :cool:

I agree they should play tea overseas but what song would you choose to cut and replace thats a pretty difficult decision.

Well, they did do the medley in 2014 which included Tea / Digging Graves / A Visit from the Dead.
If I'd want to cut out a song from the set, it would have to be Shapes Of Black. I know it's theatrical and also a 'pause/relaxing' song for King to do, but there are so many other good songs from that album that surpasses Shapes Of Black which would be great live.

I do not care what songs King Diamond plays, as long as i get to see and hear it.
Even if it was a full reggea set!  \m/ \m/

But that will not be the case. Love the whole Abigail idea though. Can't wait. Exactly one week to go.  \m/ \m/

Fortarock was a great Festival. And K.I.N.G the BEST BAND of it.

Period.

The Crowd, Show, Sound, Band : everything nearly PERFECT.
 Really.

I am so excited to see you at COPENHELL this month again.

Melissa again. And Abigail again. Oh, man.... wooOw.

Hope to see Michael Denner, too. On stage or in his shop.

First time Denmark. ONLY because I,m a Fan of King Diamond.

I think

 Copenhell could  be the best Festival  in my life !!! Sabbath and KING !!!  :king:

Those who have seen us at FortaRock and are coming to another show as well, you'll be in for a world of a difference.
Unfortunately it was not fully dark when we played at FortaRock, nor could we have the backdrops raised to their full height (7 meters), and we could not fit the side drops either.

All those things add up, and when everything fits as intended, the show is truly a beast :)

Hi Livia, I know the show will be amazing no matter what. I created this post to actually prepare my wife for King Diamond's show given that she is not a fan and does not know the songs or anything (she has seen videos and pictures though), but she gave me this ticket as a wedding present because she knows how much I love THE KING! So she is travelling with me all the way from Glasgow, Scotland to London. One of the reasons I accepted to come and settle in Europe was to witness King Diamond live! I have been a fan since I was 18 (now 28) and moved from Chile to live and work, but I insist, also for King Diamond.

Wish you the best Livia, and I'm sure you will all put on a great show.
Kind regards from a King Diamond's Crazy Chilean Fan :blush:

I had a feeling the stage was a bit smaller. The stage was also a bit more forward. A bit annoying for the band having less room but awesome for the fans.

I should go to graspop to witness the full show.

I saw the show at Sweden Rock Festival and it was amazing. King sounded excellent; don't think I have ever heard him that good. The sound, light and stage were perfect.  The setlist was great; I really loved Melissa, great version. The only thing that was bad was that the set was to short, would have loved about 10 more songs´. :icon_biggrin: (This is the downside with festival shows: time)

I also ran into Matt and Pontus, it was great talking to them, great guys.

If you get the chance, go see a show on this tour, you won’t be disappointed.

Yes, the Sweden Rock-gig was absolutely amazing!
I have seen KD six times now, and I'm quite sure this was the best concert I have seen with King Diamond. They just sound so brilliant, everyone is on fire! I'm still in awe, and my neck and arms are still sore!  :icon_smile:

THANK YOU!
