on June 24, 2014, 11:45am

In one of the most rare gets of the entire summer festival season, Fun Fun Fun Fest announced last month that it had secured Danish metal fiend King Diamond for a rare North American appearance. Now, the paint-wearing overlord has announced an entire tour North American leading into his lone festival appearance. The 18-date jaunt begins in mid-October and includes stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Seattle, San Francisco, and beyond. Consult the full tour schedule below.

King Diamond will be joined on stage by longtime guitarist Andy LaRocque, drummer Matt Thompson, bassist Hal Patin, and six-string guitarist Mike Wead. According to a press release, the tour is described as “the most ambitious and largest North American productions of the band’s entire history.”
