    KING DIAMOND Joins Forces With Concert-Booking Agencies - Jan. 16, 2012

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...sitemID=168342

    KING DIAMOND has joined forces with Nick Storch at ICM and Paul Ryan
    at The Agency Group. Storch will be in charge of booking KING DIAMOND
    concerts in North and South America, and Paul Ryan will handle KING
    DIAMOND dates in Europe and the rest of the world.

    "It is great to be in the top professional hands of Nick and Paul,"
    said KING DIAMOND frontman and namesake. "They both come highly
    recommended by Brian Slagel of Metal Blade, who personally suggested
    the partnership that is now in effect.

    "ICM and The Agency Group have so much combined experience, which will
    open new doors for us.

    "When it comes to getting us back on stage again, we all agree on how
    to bring KING DIAMOND to a whole new level. Within a few weeks, we
    should be able to announce the first part of our plan."

    Added Storch: "I can speak for the entire team here at ICM that we are
    thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a legend of heavy
    metal. I could not be happier to be involved with KING DIAMOND's
    return to the stage."

    Stated Ryan: "It's a huge honour, and one I and everyone here at The
    Agency Group shares, to be part of King's team moving forward!...
    Being such an influence on the metal genre and an artist I have
    personally enjoyed and been inspired by for many years; itís a very
    exciting time to be involved!"

          I did see King at the Nomad showcase - he sang 3 songs (The Family Ghost, Burn, & Evil) sounded great on all three - he put together a band of local dallas area musicians for this one night & Michael Harris & JT Longoria just smoked on the guitars - sounded great

          I did get some pictures - here is a facebook link for them if anyone wants to check them out - http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...3&l=97a9d39d03

                Tuska Festival, Friday 28 June...the return of King Diamond will be one of the most iconic moments since Heaven & Hell...my second show since 2006...

                Bolt Thrower will return on that same festival and same day...my very first show...

                Friday 28 June will be the most important day of heavy metal in 2013.

                      Have y'all checked out King's appearance on that metal show from this fall? the episode was pretty cool & had King showing a photo taken at one of the Festivals from last summer where a 'ghost leg' appeared on stage here's the link - http://www.vh1.com/video/that-metal-...playlist.jhtml

                      Also his new website & store is very cool lots of cools shirts & glasses, etc on it - saw 3 festival dates for next year & his Halloween Message says a US tour may be coming next year as well

                          Indeed! All three of them kick major fucking ass!

                          A show that looks like that - and sounds like how King Diamond sounds live - should be filmed and released...

                          You know, looking at this personal greeting makes me so damn happy that I can't even describe it...

                            ^^^^ sure !
                            It' s with this kind of message that King knows how to stay very close and respectful to his fans . Both simple and touching .
                            I wish him and his band all the best .

                            big Hope for a future DVD release about this gig .
