King Diamond To Play A One Off Show In London

King Diamond To Play A One Off Show In London

KING DIAMOND will return to the UK this June, to play their first indoor UK show in 15 years. This exclusive UK show takes place Tuesday 21st June at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.

One of the most massively influential artists in the rock and metal scene, KING DIAMOND’s incredible vocal performances under both his own name, and his former band MERCYFUL FATE – which featured current Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee – has demanded the attention and adulation of fans across the globe. The Danish singer also counts a number of high profile artists in the world of metal as fans, including the likes of Dave Grohl, who invited KING to guest on his PROBOT album, Trivium’s Matt Heafy, who collaborated with the Danish singer on the ROADRUNNER UNITED project, as well as being covered by METALLICA, who as well as inviting KING DIAMOND to perform alongside them on stage, immortalized him as a playable character in their 2009 video game Guitar Hero: Metallica

KING DIAMOND will host his first full UK indoor headline performance in over 15 years at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town  on 21st June, where they will, as part of their live set, perform the iconic ‘Abigail’ album in its entirety for the first and possibly last time ever in the UK, as well as numerous other hits. This will be the most ambitious theatrical horror production by KING DIAMOND to date.  Both sonically and visually this will take the band to a whole new level.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
