HOO-RAY! KING DIAMOND ANNOUNCES EUROPEAN FESTIVAL APPEARANCES!
So remember last week, when King Diamond announced that he’d hired some new booking agents, and we were like, “Oh, that must mean he’s gonna tour again soon?” Well, hey, guess what? That’s EXACTLY what it meant!
The King has announced two European festival dates — June 9 at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden, and June 15 at Hellfest in Clisson, France — but it’s hard for me to imagine that he won’t be announcing more shortly. It’s also hard for me to imagine that those appearances won’t be followed by touring in other parts of the world. I’m just speculating, mind you, but… again, why announce new booking agents and festival appearances if you weren’t gearing up for some major activity?
While we wait for further news, enjoy the below video of His Majesty announcing his appearance at Sweden Rock Fest and discussing his current band line-up. I always find it a little odd to see the guy without his make-up, but I gotta say, he’s looking pretty good for a man who was knocking on death’s door not all that long ago. LONG LIVE THE MOTHERFUCKING KING.
