Great news  :king: though I won't make any of it.  :(

Are there any plans for other venues in Europe? On SRF/Hellfest sites they write those are two exclusive shows, but I have hopes it's just marketing and other shows will be announced later.

Man, international travel within Europe must be a bitch for you guys.  Here I sit, in absolute poverty, in Midwestern Missouri, USA, and I'm seeing what I can do to make it to France in June.  You guys face hardships traveling a distance equal to crossing 1, maybe 2, states here.  I'll never understand it. :-[

Sadly, everything here in DK is extremely expensive and when you're poor, it leaves very little room for fun. 1 ticket to a show here in DK is roughly 10% of me and the missus food budget for a month. Plus 2 bridges to cross on our way to Sweden, where they make you pay through your nose and acomadation in Sweden, then :(

I saw in a thread that you could get 10 cheeseburgers and a water (Your devil menu, IIRC :D) for 6,66$. Here a meal like that will cost you about 20$. I know you cannot compare like that, since with our insanely high taxes we have a healthcare system, education system, that is more or less completely free, but it does eat up lots of your "fun money". Denmark is the most expensive country to live in, in the EU

How much is a new CD in the stores in the States, btw?

It's great that this is happening, especially for our European members who are going to be able to get to one or both festivals. I sincerely doubt I'd make it to either festival but I never know where I'm going to be in the world and when. I'll be sure to catch it if I'm near though! Or if I win the lottery.  :gah:

your best bet will probably be american airlines, purchased through orbitz, or another such discount provider. the problem though is that the concert is in june, during the height of the tourist season, when prices for air travel, etc are highest.

maybe you and I could volunteer as techs for the band.  :icon_wink:

Wow!! I wonder what the setlist will be...can't stop thinking about this.  Finally some Give Me Your Soul...Please songs live!  Hell yes!  Hopefully a few lesser played treasures that King has mused about playing in his skype conversations.  Songs such as At The Graves and Eastman's Cure!  I will be eagerly watching the set list updates as someone at the gig messages them through during the gig.

Welcome home King !!  \m/

Right now the price is 149€ for the 3-days pass.
The 1-day tickets will be on sale in a couple months maybe. They will cost around 70€ i think.

As for France, well, I'd love to visit one day, but I doubt it'd be for some metal fest. Anyway I admire you guys' enthousiasm, but if I ever make a trip overseas to see a band, it would be for something I have not already seen, am dying to see, and that it's the last possible chance to see them. It won't be for an act I've had the chance to see many times, and that will probably be back where I live in the near future. [/cynicism]

I think it's the other way around, that the women in Norway are more beautiful (not that there's much of a difference). Do you go to the Inferno or Hole In The Sky festivals? They usually have killer line-ups.

Well, if it's not confirmed by anyone else than Hellfest, I wouldn't count on it 100%. Of course I'm afraid that you're right but try to remain a little bit optimistic. In all honesty, I'm not overly excited about festival gigs in general and am especially not excited enough to go see a festival gig abroad.

Wow the fact KD is back gets more exciting every day! I wonder if they will treat these shows as the "GMYS...P tour" and play four or five off the album (please be Never Ending Hill, Black of Night, Mirror Mirror, GMYS, Floating Head) then a bunch of songs spanning their career. I really hope they play as much new stuff (Voodoo onwards) as possible.

It is fantastic to see the KD logo back and atop a festival lineup!!!  \m/  \m/

Due to being fairly poor, I have to hope for US East Coast gigs in not so distant future. Otherwise, it doesn't look good for me seeing any shows. I certainly can't be at the return festival gigs, although that would be truly amazing, just isn't going to happen, unless a kind very rich soul wants to help me out. How about a contest to bring several members of the board with the band to the festivals? Now that would be EPIC!

Fuck, I hope they come to Holland later, too. Can't really afford going to France and even less so to Sweden, I'm afraid.
That said, it's really awesome that King's going touring again! I'm sincerely happy for the Swedish and French Diamond bangers!

Will be there with my girlfriend for sure, i absolutely can't miss that, especially cause i go there since 5 years, it's not the year King will be there i won't go! :D

Hope also a cool merch coming with that, i have to admit i'm less fan of the late "3D" versions etc... i'd love to see a shirt with an old school front like for the Abigail or Conspiracy tour, with King holding the skull or this kind of things, was pretty cool!

Hope also plenty of dates coming (at least next year) in Germany, Holland, Switzerland, ... would help to see King several times in a raw! \m/ :king:

Haha, seriously, I'm so glad and thrilled that King Diamond will own the stage ones more, have been waiting for this a long time!

See you in the front row!

There's nothing on the site which says it will be streamed live man. Maybe they will shed more light on the matter closer to the time. Although I can see some form of Pro footage being taken for the KINGS return...maybe have to wait til after the festival though.

saw the "live stream" part of the site, and that means that some bands performances will be shown live. But the band's management must give the permission to stream it, right? So I thought that King or Livia or Ole may know something. It would be awesome: first good pro-shot. This is horrible, that one of the greatest heavy metal artists hasn't got true pro-shot of his performance

Hopefully they will have a timetable of bands that will be appearing on the livestream? If King and CO don't mind it I'm sure the people running Hellfest would want to make that public to everyone. Especially for all the fans that can't attend. Yeah it is pretty mad that there is no professional footage of King on the web.

BE PATIENT AND YOU WILL SEEEE!!!

I think the setlist might look something like this:

From the other side
Welcome home
Is anybody here?
Black of night
Give me your soul
At the graves
Sleeples nights
LOA house
Blood to walk
A mansion in darkness
Come to the sabbath
Halloween


About 1 hour in length. Classics mixed with a couple of songs from the remastered 90's albums and a few "new" songs - at least never played live - from GMYSP.

According to the Hellfest running order King has a 1 hour and 15 minute set so I'm sure he'd manage to throw in another 2-3 songs compared to the length of your set :D Anything from voodoo and I shall shit a brick. less than 30 days \m/

Ok, we are just over a week out from the first King Diamond show in 6 years. Very, very exciting and a little nerve wracking. Based in Australia I'll be watching for setlist updates on the night as each song is played. Sorry to use this thread for a set list prediction but here goes:

At the Graves
Sleepless Nights
Neverending Hill
Black of Night
Family Ghost
Behind these Walls
Blood to Walk
Give Me Your Soul
Welcome Home
The Invisible Guests
Eye of the Witch
Halloween

I really don't mind what the band plays, as long as they enjoy themselves and it is recorded...please.

Post by: Livia Zita on June 09, 2012, 04:38:04 PM
The stage set up blew my mind the first time I saw it.

It took me 2 weeks to create the backdrop and a couple of hours to do the Baphomet sigil.
By this I mean the graphics, of course, not the carving/printing.

King told me what he wanted to see, and I made it happen in 3D and photoshop.
Our production engineer, Niller, had a lot to do with it all as well.

The stage set up blew my mind the first time I saw it.

It took me 2 weeks to create the backdrop and a couple of hours to do the Baphomet sigil.
By this I mean the graphics, of course, not the carving/printing.

King told me what he wanted to see, and I made it happen in 3D and photoshop.

Damn incredible work!!!
This is by far the best background I've ever seen for KD. Jaw dropping, really!

That is the most amazing setlist!  Tell King thanks for playing stuff from Spider's and The Graveyard (his most underrated work).  I also love how he switched it up and did The Candle as the intro (I don't think they've played that one in maybe 15 years) and Welcome Home as a second number.

I went home directly after King's show, didn't bother to watch the last band on the bill, Mötley Crüe. In my mind, King was the real headliner at this festival!

Definitely some songs I wouldn't expect to be played on there, but the setlist is bad ass!

That stage is truly amazing. It just makes the atmosphere so much better and I can imagine makes the crowd feel like they are in King's own world.

fucking awesome. i wish the fence wasn't so big  because you can't see the band very well, but other than that it looks excellent.


i was so worried about this gig, and about king's health, and if he would be ok, and this just proves that he is in fact in good health and can still sing. that makes me really happy for him.
I bet the whole band was so damn excited last night. first gig in so long . . . i wish i could have been there.

not to mention it makes pretty damned happy too. :king:

(fuck volbeat though. i know everyone loves them, but . . .just can't get into them)

Especially considering they're probably still in Sweden, they will still have to get back to the US, probably sleep for a long time. Plus who wants to go home after something this stressful and tiring and then edit a whole festival appearance? I know I wouldn't. Seriously, last month King didn't even have a Youtube channel, and now all of a sudden people think they deserve a whole set from Sweden Rock after just one day.

What is it to me? It's fucking rude to me thats what. Nobody "appointed" me council, but if I find something downright rude to one of my favorite bands, your damn right I will voice my oppinion on the matter.

Especially considering they're probably still in Sweden, they will still have to get back to the US, probably sleep for a long time.

My guess would be that they're staying in Europe until they've done the Hellfest gig in France, on friday. And let's not forget about that gig either. I'm sure there'll be plenty goodies for the fans, once the KD camp get a chance to catch their breath.

Would you believe that once, we had no internet? One could wait for weeks, even months, to learn about how a specific show went down, through the printed media.

Sad how people are whining about no vids, less than 24 hrs after a gig...

The entire band sounded great and Andy is a beast in KD. Fricking Wead is always stage right you can never see him and his awesome ESP haha. Hopefully good things are on the way  :cool: :king:

You know you did good when Norway´s biggest paper has a report from Sweden Rock and chooses to have a pic of King instead of way more known Motley Crue on their front (the internet version, but still). http://www.dagbladet.no/2012/06/10/kultur/musikk/konsert/festival/rock/22025873/ (http://www.dagbladet.no/2012/06/10/kultur/musikk/konsert/festival/rock/22025873/) Pretty cool article for those who understand Norwegian/Scandinavian, but in short; They talk about King´s helath issues, but say he´s "back from the dead", both he and the band looked up for it and were just awesome, the stage show was killer, goose bumos and all  :cool:Then, Motley came on and the reporters decided to leave and rink instead. They mention King and then Soundgarden, Steel Pather (!), Twisted and Rival Sons as the best acts during the festival.

Looks kind of demanding to me, complete with the mad emoticons.
What is it to me? It's fucking rude to me thats what. Nobody "appointed" me council, but if I find something downright rude to one of my favorite bands, your damn right I will voice my oppinion on the matter. If you meant the fans, then why bring Livias name into it? You didn't and you know it. So just STFU and learn some manners.
I forgot school's out for summer.Sorry...

The band sounded sooooo great and that was without a doubt the most amazing vocal performance I have ever heard from King live. Up From The Grave gave me chills. Ahh I feel like a kid again, discovering King for the first time.

Title: Re: King Diamond In Concert - Summer 2012
Post by: Hammer on June 11, 2012, 06:58:52 AM
We just came back home from our trip to Sweden Rock. We watched the whole show from the very first row with my wife. My wife was the one with King Diamond corpsepaint on her face (you can see her and me from one of the pics Livia posted, I’m the guy with mouth wide open - thanks Livia for sharing that brilliant pic :P). The show was beyond awesome, the best show I have ever seen. And I truly mean it was that SUBERB. It blew my mind. The stage looked even better than what I dreamt of (more satanic and metallic than ever!), King did amazing job on vocals, band sounded badass and the theatrical side of the show was truly amazing. For those who’re not that into the song Up from the Grave: you should see how it looked and sounded live. It was theatrically outstanding. I mean Up from the Grave isn’t among my favourite tracks from The Graveyeard but it came ALIVE when played live. It was even one of the highlights of the whole show. I can still see King digging the grave on the stage... :icon_twisted:

The set list was a perfect mix of classics and surprises. DREAMS!!!, one of my all-time favourite songs were one of the highlights for me. The Candle – a great opener, At the Graves – stunning, Shapes of Black – amazing both theatrically and musically (that’s the song we were talking on Skype with King)… Of course Sleepless Night is one my all-time favourites, like Halloween, Eye of the Witch and other classics. But Halloween with Mikkey Dee on drums and Michael Denner on the guitar, it was almost like being on a KD show on the 80’ies!!! It was also awesome to see Hank on stage to play some good old Mercyful Fate. Voodoo was also theatrically somewhat a highlight with Jodi’s unique dancing. The band introduction was shorter than usual, I guess because limited time of the festival set, but it was good to hear that classic “The one and only: Mr. Andy La Rocque” and then Andy started playing The Family Ghost. It was one epic moment. Black Horsemen, perhaps my all-time favourite King Diamond song closed the perfect show in a best possible way.

It’s hard to describe how happy I am. I was waiting for one amazing show but it was still even better than what I expected. So close to perfection, if not even a perfect show for my taste. King is back stronger than before!!! By the way, how many of you saw the little boy with King Diamond paint on his face? He was wearing Mercyful Fate t-shirt. I can post a pic of him later. Are his parents here on Coven? If so, amazing job, the little boy was the coolest thing in the audience. I'm sure you're proud of him. The little KD girl was a sweet thing as well.

Huge thanks to the King, to the band, to Livia, to the crew, to Jodi, to the fans, to Sweden Rock festival and everyone who made this possible. You are the greatest. It was one of the best nights in my life. I will never forget that show. That was my third King Diamond show and the best of what I've seen and heard so far. 

This picture really shows my emotions during the show, I nearly destroyed my voice of all that sing-along stuff but it was more than worth it - I'm the guy who's mouth wide open and that Lady King Diamond is my wife  :icon_wink: :

I hope that for the Hellfest they includes another songs like from the other side and behind these walls and and more songs from the GMYP, and another classical songs to the variety,

That was the best concert I've ever been to! Waited two hours to be on front row in the middle. Totally worth it. Also sneaked in to the press conference. Also awesome. Took some pictures. My girlfriend (who until the press conference hated the band) later told me that she was close to tears when King talked about how he met Livia.

By the way, I read that Blood to Walk, House Of God and The Wheelchair was removed from the setlist, or at least part of the rehearsals, but not performed. Anyone know how come?

Probably just time constraints.  Festivals have very strict schedules because otherwise it cuts into another bands time.

Probably just time constraints.  Festivals have very strict schedules because otherwise it cuts into another bands time. 

Thing is, they ended the set at least ten minutes early, according to Sweden Rocks schedule. They were the last band on their stage and it was, if i recall correctly, about 25 minutes to the next band (on two other stages). The planned gap was 15, and on Sweden Rock, lots of bands play longer than scheduled.

Post by: devilsavocado on June 12, 2012, 03:16:18 PM
I wouldnt be surprised if they played it just a little safe with the set length. Bear in mind that it WAS King's first fullblown gig in several years! Maybe they decided to keep the show at a certain length for the sake of King's health.

Besides, as a former festival organiser myself, i can tell you that there are ALL KINDS of political stuff going on behind the scenes at such an event. There may be all kinds of curfew issues (yes, also regarding individual stages), contractual demands from other bands, security issues, union stuff with the crew, etc etc etc. Also, there could be an error in SRF's time schedule.

Finally (and this ties in with the SRF erroneus time schedule theory): maybe the band wasnt HIRED to play any longer than that, and planned their set accordingly. Trust me, the powers that be at festivals can get NASTY, if you play longer than agreed.

Indeed. That's pretty respectable, even for a stage headlining show.
For example, I don't recall Mercyful Fate playing that long, when they closed Orange stage at Roskilde Festival on a saturday, back in 1994 when most of y'all were in diapers...  :disturbed: :fingers:

Du kunne ikke lade være hva?  :gah:

Haha! I envy you a shitload for having seen such a great show, even though it was a short set obviously :cool:

Haha, selvfølgelig ikke!

It wasnt a short set as such, it just wasnt 100 minutes, as i recall... Also, they got on much later than advertised, because George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic (first time i saw them too) simply kept playing/jamming until someone cut the power, and i've heard that King was super pissed at George and the gang. Must have been 2 or 3 AM, before MF hit the stage.
Ironically, i got to work with George Clinton a few years later, and ended up on one of his albums, and he sang on our album as well. Everything came full circle when i joined George and P-Funk onstage at Roskilde (Arena Stage this time, though) in 2006. Funny how (mercyful) Fate works....

Seriously, that Roskilde gig should have been pro shot and issued on DVD. King was absolutely on fire that night, as was the rest of the band. "Lad mig se jeres forbandede hænder, Roskilde!!!!"

And back on topic: I'm so glad to see all the Youtube clips from the Sweden Rock show. Seems King's comeback to the live stage was a true triumph. I hope they do a full blown tour sometime soon, and come to Denmark. Personally, i think something's up, but that's just my own theory. I doubt a band would come up with such a big new stage production for just 2 shows.
I hope Hellfest turns out to be a cool experience for everybody too. Good luck to King and the band, and i hope those attending get the show of a lifetime!

Jealous that you got to go, and front row nonetheless, congrats!  Thanks for the review.  I truly wish this show comes to the States, but I don't want to get my hopes up too high!
You're welcome. I'm quite sure you guys will get King Diamond to the States quite soon. :)

Hopefully everything went fine. We also had two flights with my wife, from Helsinki to Stockholm and then from Stockholm to Ronneby. From Ronneby we had to find the festival bus that took us to Sweden Rock. After that travelling it was a dream come true to get a place from the King's front row. However, to be honest, our both flights were easy and quick compared to yours. :P

I actually think that just making bootlegs is illegal. I think it is actually illegal, at least at most venues to record the shows. Don't know about festivals though.

However you are not helping piracy if you get stuff for free. It's not like it is official stuff you would be able to buy (or will you?).

I however think that King and co might not enjoy this bootleg thing going on. I am just gonna sit on my ass and enjoy the clips on youtube, which actually have excelent quality as well imo!

Hey friends let's stop speaking of legal or illegal actions 'cause we are not lawyers. As you see most of the bands nowdays have the videos from youtube posted on their official sites and it is kind of promotion. One more chance for the band to be seen and recognized. If there werent KD/MF video bootlegs you, me and the other fans wouldn't see King live except visiting the concert!
So better say thanks for the guys done great work!

It's one thing watching a video on youtube, and quite another when talking about downloading the whole thing to where you can put it on dvd and blu-ray. Yeah if I wanted to I could copy everything on yourtube and burn it to DVD, but it's very time consuming, and really not worth it. Sorry, but I won't DL anything from some site unless I see King or Livia saying they have no problem with it. I saw some proffessional cameras in the youtube footage, I am sure if there is going to be a DVD made from this show King will market it and put it out the legal way and proper way. I'll sit on my ass like KingOfTheRotten till I hear different.

I actually think that just making bootlegs is illegal. I think it is actually illegal, at least at most venues to record the shows. Don't know about festivals though.

Sweden rock updated their policy for this years festival. Wiping out all the restrictions of filming & recording the concerts at the festival.

Everyone attending the festival were allowed to bring any & every filming equipment and associated equipment (like tripods, additional lenses, etc. & record how much we'd want this year)

Their reasons for this change in rules were because the selling (& buying) of bootlegs have decreased (& hopefully stopped) in the recent years, and almost everyone have already been filming & taking pictures with their cell-phones on the previous Sweden Rock Festivals.

I uploaded my filmings of the concert (I made a few cuts, so the whole concert wasn't filmed) but luckily a couple of other people recorded the audio, and I could add that audio onto my own filming) to dimeadozen (where several other audience video & audio recordings of - among many others - King Daiamond's concerts are available for free download) where everyone can get it for free (like on youtube).

I chose to upload my filmings on there (instead of youtube) because youtube compresses the quality, and I want to share it in good quality.

This filming is not for sale (and will never be), it is only for free download.

It is for the fans that couldn't (by any reason) attend the concert & for the fans that were there that want to experience this awesome concert again.

And my filming isn't any better than any of the youtube-videos I've seen, and you can al-ready watch the whole press conference & almost every song from the concert on there there (except from Voodoo, & up from the grave, I think) so (nearly) the whole concert is al-ready up there for everyone to enjoy. My filmings are just from another angle & uploaded to another site.

And I am sure that we will see much great video-footage from the Hellfest show to!  :king:
I am searching constantly for videos from Hellfest on youtube.

And if there will be an official DVD or CD from this, or any other concert of King, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

Edit: And of-course if King & co ( by any reason) wouldn't want me to keep it at the site, I will take it down.

You my good sir are one good example of how bootlegging should be! Never about money! YOu have my respect!

There are however a video of Up From The Grave on youtube :) ANd it has great video and sound quality!

Those cameras were probably only for the big screen so everyone could see. Don't ever expect that a band is filming for a dvd just because there are cameras around. You will be dissapointed, trust me I have tried it :(

However it would be cool if Sweden Rock saved that footage and maybe released a couple of tracks on a dvd you could get if you bought their magazine?

Back from the Hellfest.
I will post pics later.

The show was just phenomenal.  \m/
King did a few wrong notes but overall his voice was TOP NOTCH. He even hit the highest notes of the studio versions.
The musicianship was incredible as well, and the set the stage on fire.. The crowd did more than enjoy it, showed respect and passion between each song and each time King would ask for their contribution.
I would lack of positive words to describe how i felt and lived this show.

Highlights : The Candle (OMG), Welcome Home, Sleepless Nights, The Family Ghost, Eye Of The Witch and Andy & Mike's guitar solos.

Ive never had the opportunity to see a KD show until then, my dream came true and my next dream is to see another one.

see ya for the pics  :D: unfortunately they are a bit blurry -_-

Post by: devilsavocado on June 17, 2012, 11:10:21 AM
I simply can't say how happy it makes me to see the Hellfest and SRF video clips, and reading the reports/reviews in here.

I've been a KD and MF fan since 1987, and i've followed King and his bands ever since (although from in the distance for a certain period of time, where i didnt listen to much metal, but i still made sure to keep up on what King was doing musically). Then i found this community in 2003, and became a fullblown fan once again.

When i read about first King's back problems, and then the heart surgery, i was certain that we had seen the last of him.

And now, to see him return in this spectacular fashion is just absolutely, truly heartwarming!!! I've been watching thos clips and reading the reviews with a huge grin on my face!!!!

A comeback like this could have been done in a million wrong ways, but the King and crew did it exactly RIGHT! New, absolutely mind-blowing stage production, the RIGHT KD band lineup (Yes, i think this line-up is the strongest ever since the "golden" Roadrunner years), they shook up the setlist, and King absolutely, positively screaming his ass off! He is really sounding stronger than he has in MANY years!!!

Welcome back, King! I hope this is a sign of much more to come, and soon!!!

EDIT: Oh, and i simply can't give enough props to Matt Thompson! That guy is a MACHINE on those skins, and deserves WAY more respect than he is being shown! Indeed, the WHOLE band is on fire these days!!!

Back from Hellfest!
Now THAT was a show! King was really in a very good shape! It was so good to see him after 6 years...thumbs up for King and for the whole band!
My personal highlights: The Candle (  \m/ \m/), At The Graves ( \m/ \m/ ), Voodoo (very powerful song for live show) and Dreams (nice surprise!!).
Brilliant, brilliant show! THANK YOU!

Thanks to the band for two awesome shows and to everyone who attended for the amazing Youtube footage and commentary...although in faraway Sydney it almost felt like I was at the festivals.

The setlist was great...good to see Voodoo and At the Graves!!  I feel a little sorry for Mike Wead as just about every song they played was from prior to his era so he had to play interperative solos rather than cut loose on any of his own original shreddings.  Oh well, he sounded amazing. \m/

Did anyone who attended manage to purchase any King Diamond merchandise?  What was on offer?

King's voice is now as strong as it ever has been!! Bring on the next album!! :king:

Unfortunately the shirts were sold out when I tried to buy one. Well, I'm going to buy one of those two shirts (or both) later if possible. :)

In my opinion The Puppet Master is the best album King has released so far and GMYSP is also one of best ones. Both of them contain a lot of falsettos, they are just mixed differently. But I agree, it would be cool to hear even more amazing falsetto vocals the same way like they were used to sound back in the days.  :P I'm sure it's going to be one awesome album like all King's works has been so far. I trust that King and Andy will write some killer material.

After coming back from Hellfest Festival, I just want to say thank you to everyone involved in the King Diamond show, it was so amazing that it really stands out as the highlight of the whole weekend.

Thank You King, Livia, Andy, Mike, Hal and Matt!

King's performance was really impressive, what he said about his voice in this recent interview was very accurate, it is as good as ever. And I love the way he really acted the song, like in a theatre, giving shape to those stories on the stage.

The crowd loved it, staying in the night under the rain, and still cheering at all this awesomeness. King seemed to be genuinely happy and affected by the crowd's great reaction, still a lot of humility after a 30 years long carreer. :)

P.S: I have been lucky enough to get the Tshirt n°2 that you posted Joker,  it is not everyday that you can find some official King merchandise, a great souvenir for a magic night.

I saw a lot of bands live, and that was honestly one of the best show i've ever seen from far, just fucking AMAZING! King was great, the stage was awesome, the musicians perfect, the show (as with grandma or the dance on Voodoo) just killed...

This will stay a great great memory for me.

And i was so happy about the shirts, so great, i bought the purple one that look just awesome, old school and modern in the same time (i was affraid of something too modern), i love it!!!

I took some cool pics of the gig, i will try to post them later. ;)

THANX AGAIN KING. :king:

You Europeans are so fucking lucky!  Here in Australia we can't even dream of something like this. We get shit festivals and bands which are not even true metal , only modern nu 'metal,' screamo, alternative, and trendy flavour of the month garbage, crap which has absolutely nothing to do with metal. 

What i would give to see King play Australia, even just a totally raw stripped down show with no effects and theatrics.

Then, it's not the King of course, and i sadly know it's not the same than europe about festivals, that's a strong point i can only agree and understand. Wish you to see him one day!

We travelled 11 hours from Germany to Hellfest by car only to see King Diamond back in action! AND IT WAS AMAZING! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! BEST SHOW EVER IN MY LIFE!!!

The stage design was pure PANT PISSING and the performance of everyone of the band was PERFECT! The atmosphere was creepy evil and it was great when King Diamond sang "Dreams in the night...falling like rain" - because it was really raining (but that doesn't bother me). I talked to a guy who travelled from Israel to hellfest only to see King Diamond the first time in his life - greetings to you, bro! I got a hug from an old french King Diamond fan because we wore the same Conspiracy Tour-Shirt - really nice guy!

THANKS THANKS THANKS to the whole King Diamond band - you were AWESOME absolute AWWWWWWWWESOME!! Best band on this planet!!  :king: \m/

Soundwave Festival in Australia last year was headlined by Iron Maiden, Slayer and QOTS. This year Lamb of God, Machine Head, Meshuggah and Mastodon were among the 70 bands on the bill. Hopefully King Diamond comes down here next February and headlines Soundwave. Its the time of year when the Northern hemisphere is sleeping.

Australia has, and has had in the past, good local metal bands like Sadistik Exekution, Slaughter Lord, Hobbs, Destroyer 666, Mortal Sin, Armoured Angel, Vomitor, Gospel of the Horns, Bestial Warlust, etc {for the heavier stuff}  and Pegazus, Black Majestry, Vanishing Point, Eyefear, Dungeon, etc {the more trad/power metal styff} but we don't get someone special like King Diamond or Manowar.  Sure we had Maiden come here 5 times in 32 years and Priest 2 times in their almost 40 year career. First time that Australia got to see Priest live was in 2001. ::) First and only time we got to see Van Halen live was in 1998. We have never seen the Scorpions or Accept live, how fucked up is that for a western country?  Sadly something like Wacken Bang Your Head or Keep It True is unthinkable in a place like Australia.

It's so great to not only see King back on the stage, but in top form as well!  I am stoked for a U.S. tour.

At Hellfest there were camera crews on the stages filming most bands.
Can't actually remember if anyone there was filming Kings set :/ I wasn't paying too much attention to camera crews for the hour he was on haha

There is some pretty decent footage on youtube taken from the crowd. It's no pro shoot, but it's as good as it may get for the time being!

Did anyone attend Wacken Open Air this year?

Only asking because Hank Shermann and Michael Denner performed with Volbeat. didn't want to start a new thread just about this but this is KINDA related to KD concerts!

Anyway! If anyone else was there and did see it...Did you guys shit bricks when Denner walked on to perform a song with them?!

2 MF legends on stage at once!!  \m/ \m/ \m/

Wacken seemed like total shit this year a side from a few bands.

The lineup was considerably weaker in comparison to previous years but as for the atmosphere you couldn't beat it.

Hands down one of the coolest places I have ever been as far as festivals go!

I'd love to go to Wacken some day. As you said, the atmosphere is incredible and I can believe that. It's a fucking three day never-ending heavy metal party. As much fun as it would be to go just for the atmosphere and a guaranteed good time, I'd like to see some bands I like as well. :D \m/

Yeah I agree with you too man, I wish there were a few more bands there for me! Attending Wacken this year was just a drunken discussion that I thought would never happen and the next day I had a ticket in my shopping cart before even looking at the lineup xD

Late though this may be....I just wanted to drop in and say after having seen the whole set someone shot and was kind enough to upload on youtube of King Diamond's performance at Sweden Rock, King and co. BROUGHT IT AND IN SPADES!!!     Opening up with  'The Candle,'  and just TEARING THE ASS outta the place!!!     King sounded absolutely MAGNIFICENT, and the stage set was fantastic!    So many great songs played, I even found myself quite surprised (and VERY overjoyed) to hear  "Dreams"  and  "Up From The Grave"  in the set!!

It did my heart so much good to see one of metal's greatest masters back in action...just wish the crowd wasn't so exhausted by that time (must've been a very long day, the crowd seemed less than enthused...even though they were clearly bent on staying to see the band!!!)...GREAT show...
