As much as I like King Diamond I reckon Kreator will outperform him on this tour. They're incredible live.

I just wonder why they announced this tour so far in advance. And why are the NY shows on a Tuesday and a Wednesday? What the hell is going on here?

Are you going to the Download Festival Oz?

Nah mate. I got plenty of friends that are though. One of them left at five this morning so he could be first one in the campsite. It is strange that they announced the dates for the KD tour so early in advance but when I first saw Motorhead I bought the tickets at Christmas time for a show that wasn't happening until late October so maybe it's just to ensure a crowd OR that so many people will try and buy these tickets that they'll upgrade the venues. Quite honestly King Diamond and Kreator would be one hell of a show haven't heard Cellador and I'm not a fan of Leaves Eyes but they're not bad.

Bought the new King Diamond yesterday and I must say, not his best work. It just sounds like it was thrown together. The guitar work is nothing special and the lyrics are just getting way to lame. Plus he has his wife or girlfriend singing on it. That’s the kiss of death. Now I'm having second thoughts about going to the show.
