Hey Everyone!

Well, aren't you guys quick? :) I am usually sleeping at 4-5 am, hence the few hour delay in announcing things here ^_^

In any case, here is the announcement text in this thread as well:

KING DIAMOND CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK 2013 AS FRIDAY NIGHT HEADLINER

Here at Bloodstock HQ we’re excited to announce our first headliner for 2013. The Grammy-nominated, Danish metal legend KING DIAMOND will dazzle eyes and perforate eardrums in the Friday night top slot.

After a six-year touring hiatus, the band triumphantly returned to the stage in 2012 for European festivals, Hellfest and Sweden Rock. Friday night’s closing performance at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 marks not only their first ever UK festival appearance, but their first UK show of any kind in many years and will be their only UK date in 2013.

When asked about Bloodstock, the mighty King quoth: "I'm looking so much forward to this, we all are. Finally back in England! The people at Bloodstock have gone the extra mile to make this possible, and will be expanding the stage to fit our full production. This is gonna be DARK and very HEAVY!"

Hugely-respected, with a 30+ year career, check out some spooktacular KING DIAMOND, both old and new, while you’re getting your scare on this October...

Sleepless Nights:
Give Me Your Soul -
The Invisible Guests -
The Family Ghost -
At The Graves -
Them -

… or even some fan-filmed footage of good friends Metallica and the King rockin’ out together at Metallica’s 30th Anniversary show earlier this year -

This special headline appearance racks up alongside the previously announced special guests, ANTHRAX and ACCEPT, and UK exclusive appearances from FIREWIND and FOZZY.

Bloodstock ‘Early Bird’ tickets are available from the Bloodstock store at the bargain price of £100 (plus booking fee) for a four-day weekend pass. Snap ‘em up quick, as this limited time offer won’t last forever!

26.10.2012 - Headliner confirmed for ROCK HARD FESTIVAL 2013!

KING DIAMOND will headline RHF 2013!
The biggest problem was to put the famous KING DIAMOND show up in Gelsenkirchen. Of course the Rock Hard Team wants to present you the real, full spectacle that King has been known for and not some half-hearted show. They therefore will prepare a special stage set-up for the Amphitheatre and are proud to present the most spectacular show in the history of the festival!
We look forward to having KING DIAMOND play RHF - as much as the KING looks forward to seeing you!

"What a great feeling that we managed to solve all the details necessary for us to bring the full show. We've talked about this for so long, and now it's finally happening.
Can't wait. GREAT JOB from everyone at your end! Strong mutual collaboration was necessary, and now it's done. We're coming.
We're all looking very much forward to this!"

- King Diamond


The Rock Hard Festival 2013 takes place at the Amphitheatre Gelsenkirchen on 17th May to 19th May 2013. You can buy festivaltickets for 70,- Euro and campingtickets for 15,- Euro (each plus 10% advance booking fee).

The Into The Grave festival in the Netherlands would be great.

An appropriate title for a festival if King Diamond would play there as well!  :gah:  \m/

I think doing the festival thing for them overseas is a good idea for them right now... great way to get back in the game and work off the rust just wish some of those festivals where in the states haha. I would hope that there will be a full blown tour when the album drops.  :P
