King Diamond has cancelled his March 15 performance at the Hell & Heaven Metal Fest in Mexico City, Mexico. The frontman commented:
“I was recently advised by my doctor to have surgery done for an issue, which, if not done right away, would have prevented me from flying. We did not expect to have any complications after the surgery, but my healing is slower than anticipated, and I’ve been advised to ‘forego air travel until his healing stabilizes and additional risks are minimized.’ Unfortunately and regretfully, this means that we cannot make it this weekend to play at the Hell & Heaven Festival. We love playing in Mexico and can’t wait to get a chance to make this up to you. Til then, stay heavy.”
King Diamond has premiered a new song titled “Masquerade Of Madness.“ This track is the first single from his upcoming album “The Institute.“
King Diamond has revealed that he is planning to release a new album called “The Institute“ in 2020. With this news, the frontman has also announced a fall North American tour with Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and Idle Hands.
King Diamond commented:
“For reasons unknown to you, it is clear that you have no way of making it to ‘The Institute’ on your own at this point. Therefore, we will bring ‘The Institute’ to you. You don’t want to miss this special opportunity for treatment only we can give you. It could be for your own good, you know…”
