Presents For Thanksgiving: King Diamond announces ‘Abigail In Concert’ fall tour


As usual, there will be No Presents for Christmas this year. But here in Boston we are getting King Diamond for Thanksgiving.

Good deal.

The veteran metal titan today announced a fall tour with Exodus that finds the King performing all of classic 1987 album Abigail. The 18-date North American tour kicks off October 29 in Denver, includes a Halloween night show in Salt Lake City, and wraps December 5 in Dallas. The Boston date lands on November 24, when King Diamond performs at the Orpheum Theatre just two days before Thanksgiving. Bring canned goods.


Tickets for the “Abigail In Concert 2015” tour go on sale Friday, August 7 at 10 a.m. ET. Check out the full run of dates below, and also check out Infinity Girl’s shoegaze cover of “No Presents For Christmas” the winning entry in the Xmas With The King contest we ran for the holidays back in 2013.
