King Diamond performing all of “Abigail” on forthcoming tour with Exodus (NYC date)

King Diamond live at Best Buy Theater last year

Fresh off a stint aboard the 2015 Mayhem Festival besides the likes of Slayer, Hellyeah, Whitechapel and others (stay tuned for our LI coverage), the czar of evil, King Diamond, has just announced a fall headline tour through the U.S. dubbed the “Abigail In Concert 2015,” which will see The King performing his 1987 masterpiece, Abigail, in full, along with other fan-favorite tracks and rarities at every stop of the trek. The run kicks off late October in Denver and wraps up early December in Texas with help from tour support and thrash kings, Exodus.

A show in New York City at Best Buy Theater is scheduled to take place on November 21, with tickets set to go on-sale this Friday (8/7) at noon, here. A full tour itinerary has been posted below.

Last year saw the release of King Diamond‘s fifth compilation album titled Dreams of Horror, on Metal Blade Records. Exodus are slaying in support of their tenth studio album called Blood In, Blood Out, on Nuclear Blast.

KD and Exodus are also confirmed to take part in this year’s Housecore Horror Festival in San Antonio alongside a recently reunited Superjoint Ritual, plus Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Incantation and more.
