Mercyful Fate Announce First North American Tour in Over Two Decades

Mercyful Fate have announced a Fall 2022 North American tour — their first headlining run on the continent in over two decades.

Kreator and Midnight will support the outing, which runs from October 25th in Dallas through November 16th in Atlanta.

“These will be the first Mercyful Fate concerts in North American theaters in over twenty years,” commented frontman King Diamond via a press release. “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.”

The tour follows Mercyful Fate’s European reunion tour this past summer — their first shows in 23 years — and an illustrious headlining performance at Psycho Las Vegas last month. The legendary metal band is currently working on a new album, having premiered a new song “The Jackal of Salzburg” at a June concert in Germany.
