The Scandinavian metal maestro known as King Diamond and his band, also named King Diamond, have just announced a rare tour of the US and Canada for this fall that’s being described as “the most ambitious and largest North American productions of the band’s entire history.” They’ll start off at the Center Stage theatre in Atlanta on October 11 and then head North, playing shows in Maryland, New York City, Massachusetts, Montreal and Toronto. After an additional show in Pittsburgh on October 19, it’s onto a run through the Midwest — with shows in Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, and Salt Lake City. After playing the Moore Theatre in Seattle on October 28, his highness and fell band mates will make their way down the West Coast to L.A. and then move on Las Vegas and Tucson, before their final leg through Texas. The tour will culminate with a performance at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest on November 8.

Born Kim Bendix Peterse in Copenhagen, King Diamond is Grammy nominated metal vocalist best known for his black and white stage makeup, mic stand fashioned from human bones and use of falsetto. Oh, and he’s pretty much the only 80s metal musician that used Satanic imagery that was ACTUALLY Satanic (granted, Diamond ascribes to the more philosophical LaVeyan Satanism…it’s still something for conservative parenting groups to freak out about). Diamond rose to prominence as the lead singer for Mercyful Fate, which even though is technical still together, has been on hiatus for most of the 2000s while Diamond focus on his band King Diamond.
