King Diamond to Return to 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands

Another date has been announced for the upcoming King Diamond tour. This time it’s the return to the legendary 013 for an exclusive club show. The date is August 6, 2013.
The King Is Back!

The Danish heavy metal singer King Diamond is coming back to 013 for the first time in seven years for a phenomenal performance.

Kim Bendix Petersen gained fame in the 80′s with the legendary band Mercyful Fate. King Diamond immediately continued his success with leading solo records such as ‘Abigail’ and ‘Them’. He is known for his occult horror stories, sung in a unique falsetto voice, accompanied by haunting heavy metal riffs. Inspired by the stage presence of Alice Cooper, every King Diamond show is known for being an extended visual performance.

Medical complications made it impossible for King Diamond to tour for a while, but with performances at Europe’s leading metal festivals Hellfest and Sweden Rock last year, the King proved to be running at full steam again. This year the King will be performing at all major European festivals, but also made a spot in his schedule for an exclusive club show in 013!
