King Diamond has posted this message on his official website:

A lot of rumours (as usual) have been going on since we've learned that the European King Diamond Tour has been postponed. One of the more ridiculous ones we've heard was the one that King's health is very poor. This is absolutely NOT TRUE.

The ONLY reason for postponement of the Euro-Tour, is that my immigration/naturalization process with the US-government is taking longer than expected, and this procedure prevents me from leaving the country. I already missed the first test, and had to reschedule it, due to being on tour last November. This rescheduled test has still not taken place, and if I, for some reason, miss it, I will have to start the whole procedure all over again.

The reason for this taking so long, is probably because of all the extra precautions and checks the US-government has to take in these times of TERRORISM.

So.... in order to not waste any time, songwriting for the next King- album will start in a couple of weeks, and if everything goes without any problems, we might have the music recorded right before X-mas. Vocals would then be put down in January, and then who knows what? Mix the album? Tour? Where? That I can't see in my crystal ball. BUT, one thing is for sure, a European tour should happen next year. Until then, I hope the fans will enjoy the double LIVE-album.

By the way, my health is excellent!

King

Hmm, maybe ol' king diamond should do a north american tour in his
spare time and hit the ol' naptown in the future. I agree Muffy Probot shreds!
I like the collaboration with Cronos of Venom fame.

yeah, probot is dave grohl, lemmy, king diamond and a bunch of others.
the albums ok and stuff. if you ignore the fact that dave grohl is in it, you won't
think it's him on drums.

Probot is pretty good stuff. The guests do make the album shine, but the music really holds things together as well to make a solid album.
