King Diamond who have been on hiatus for several years now after undergoing triple bypass heart surgery and having back issues have now teamed up with ICM and The Agency Group, a booking agency so it seems that King Diamond have plans to hit the roads again.
Hopefully we can also see the light of day of a new King Diamond solo album, or another Mercyful Fate album since a almost complete line-up of Mercyful Fate joined Metallica on stage some weeks ago to celebrate “30 years of Metallica”.
Here is an official statement from King‘s facebook
It has just been confirmed that King Diamond has joined forces with Nick Storch at ICM and Paul Ryan at The Agency Group.
Nick Storch will be in charge of booking King Diamond concerts in North and South America, and Paul Ryan will be in charge of booking King Diamond concerts in Europe and Rest of World.
“It is great to be in the top professional hands of Nick and Paul. 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.
WELCOME ON BOARD AND STAY HEAVY.” – King
King Diamond adds: “There’ll be a lot more great news coming the next couple of weeks. It’s been difficult keeping everything under wraps, but soon it will all be out in the open. I want to thank you for your amazing patience. We will get back to the Skype sessions in not too long as well.”
