Mercyful Fate Brings Metal to YouTube: Whether he’s performing solo or with Danish proto black metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, King Diamond puts on a show and is worth seeing, and his teutonic voice is worth hearing. German thrashers Kreator plus Midnight are also on the bill.

According to a press release, “Heavy metal icons MERCYFUL FATE today announce their first North American headlining tour in over two decades! Produced by Live Nation, the journey will commence on October 25 in Dallas, Texas and weave its way through fourteen 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.”

“These will be the first MERCYFUL FATE concerts in North American theaters in over twenty years,” said King Diamond in a statement. “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.”

Mercyful Fate Brings Metal to YouTube: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 29 at the YouTube Theater.
