Mercyful Fate 2022 Tour Announcement – US Tour Schedule
Mercyful Fate is heading on their first North American tour in over two decades, and needless to say, you need to get your tickets today. The Danish heavy metal troups will kick off in fall 2022, beginning on October 25th in Dallas, TX, and continuing through November 16th in Atlanta, GA.
When you think about the best American metal bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Testament, it’s crucial to know that they were all inspired by Mercyful Fate. The Danish band were a major part of the first wave of black metal in the early 1980s, and helped to define an entire genre with their thrashing choruses and corpse paint. Yes, corpse paint is now a regular thing in metal between KISS, Alice Cooper, and Ghost, but Mercyful Fate did it first. And they’re ready to put their four-decade legacy on full display at the first US Mercyful Fate concert in over twenty years.
Vocalist King Diamond described this experience as “your special chance to see Mercyful Fate with the full European festival production, but up close and personal.” “You cannot miss this,” he continued, “I hearby 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 rituals and killer stage design aside, there’s a long list of reasons why you need tickets to this Mercyful Fate tour.
They’ve had several hiatuses, most recently reuniting in 2019, and very rarely play their hit songs live for American fans. We’re talking “A Corpse Without a Soul,” “Evil,” “Curse of the Pharaoah,” and Come to the Sabbath,” all of which are as hauntingly beautiful as they sound. And of course all kinds of metal, as the genre would never be the same without the influence of King Diamond and his bandmates. He and guitarist Hank Shermann are the two remaining members who have played in Mercyful Fate since 1981, and they’re guaranteed to put on a thrashing, hardcore, hauntingly metal show of epic proportions.
