Last year King Diamond toured playing Abigial for the first time in years in its entirety. In addition to that a live BluRay was promised to follow but was never spoken of again after the tour.
Until now. Today King Diamond gave the following update from his official Facebook page:
Andy La Rocque and our sound engineer Pontus Norgren, have begun work on the sound files from the shows we recorded on the US 2015 Abigail Tour. Andy said he was surprised by how good it all sounds. I have personally seen a rough cut of the song “The Possession” which was put together for us as a pre-taster by Denise Korycki who is in charge of the video project, and I can tell you it sounded and looked amazing!
Everything has taken a little longer than we initially thought it would, but we now also have footage from our 2016 European Summer Festivals and we’re reviewing that as well for inclusion in the DVD set. I can’t tell you a release date at this moment, but we’re definitely sticking our heads full time into this project now.
Once we have finished work on the DVD, it will be time for writing and recording the next brand new King Diamond studio album. 2017 will be spent mostly on writing and recording, and we will also try to fit in a few special festival shows, performing the same set as on the Abigail tour. We might even hit a few places we haven’t been in a million years.
Now you know as much as I do. ?
