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.
