PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED, SEE A STATEMENT FROM THE BAND BELOW
“Due to the Government advice regarding the restriction of Mass gatherings, and with the safety of fans, crew and bands at the forefront of our thoughts, Diamond Head, and our promoters, have made the decision to postpone our upcoming dates scheduled for this month and April.
Our show at Patti Pavilion Swansea Will now take place on Friday 7 August; all tickets remain valid and can be used on the new date.
Unfortunately, due to venue availabilities, our shows in Hull, Wakefield and Glasgow can’t be rescheduled within a reasonable time, so regretfully we will have to cancel these shows. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase. We will be working with our promoters to return to these areas at some point in 2021.
At this stage, we ask all of the Diamond Head Army to take care and to look after your families.
Brian, Karl, Raz, Abbz and Dean”
Inspired by his older brother David to learn the guitar at 14, Brian Tatler eventually recruited school friends Duncan Scott, Sean Harris and Colin Kimberly to form Diamond Head in 1976. At the age of just nineteen they became part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal,
opening for AC/DC and Iron Maiden whilst still recording their debut album.
The group signed to MCA in January 1982 and released “Living On Borrowed Time” which entered the UK album charts at 24. A new line up Diamond Head opened the Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1983 and completed a 15 date European tour supporting Black Sabbath. Further line-up changes followed, with the current line-up of Brian, Karl, Abbz, Rasmus and new bass player Dean Ashton releasing their first album together in 2016. Fast forward to now, and the band recently released new album “The Coffin Train” to universal critical acclaim.
plus very special guests Rock Goddess
You could call them an all-female British heavy metal band, but doesn’t really do them justice. Because to universal critical acclaim, while this is certainly true, they transcend gender and nationality, being one of the most significant, uncompromising and celebrated hard rock/metal bands of the past four decades.
